Taster’s Review:

I’ve not consumed a lot of sangria in my time.  As I’ve mentioned on other occasions, I don’t drink a lot of alcoholic beverages.  But I am enjoying some of the alcoholic beverage inspired matcha blends from Red Leaf Tea, like this Sangria Flavored Matcha!  This is really tasty.

This particular flavored matcha was crafted with the robust flavoring level and the classic grade of Matcha.  I find the flavoring to be a little too robust for my personal preference, I think I would rather have this as a distinctive level of flavor and then perhaps with a higher grade of Matcha.

As it is, the flavor is sweet and fruity!  I taste just a hint of a brandy-like note as well as a hint of wine … but mostly what I taste is a lot of fruit flavor.  I notice citrus notes and sweet berries.  The matcha is creamy and vegetative with buttery notes and I like the way this accents the fruit tones.

My SororiTea Sister, Azzrian, mentioned on Steepster that she likes this with sparkling water, and I think that this would be really amazing prepared that way.  I prepared my sampling of this traditionally, using hot water and whisking in my chawan.  The tea produced a nice froth, but I found that the froth disappeared pretty quickly.  The prepared matcha was smooth, creamy and very fruity.

But I had to step away from my chawan before I finished the bowl, and by the time I returned to it, the matcha was cold.  However, I was happy to see that the matcha was still incorporated in the water – it hadn’t settled to the bottom of the bowl.

I find that I like this even better cold than hot!  This is really a refreshing cold drink!  It’s almost “juice-like” with the fruit flavor, and the fruit notes really seem to POP when it cools off.  A really pleasant flavored matcha!

Co-Founder/Co-Creator of SororiTea Sisters, Mad Tea Artist at 52Teas
Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of "Gramma" and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!

Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
