Tasters Review:

I held off on writing a review for this one for a while now because I wanted to have time to play with it before posting here on SororiTEA Sisters.

The first time I tried this…

ONE…I was overly eager to try it because…well…HELLO…it’s Chocolate!?  And TWO…the color of this is was much different that I expected!   It looks like a cloudy milk…I was thinking it would look like chocolate milk or something.  However, the taste was fairly mellow and very milky and had a slight cocoa taste at the end of the sip and on to the after taste.

The 2nd time I tried it I did what I like to call a DOUBLE SHOT.  And OH YEAH!  That made a difference!  I started with a little over 1 TBS and added 2 more…it’s more than suggested as they suggest 1-2 T but I figured I would try 3!

The color was still milky but with a cocoa and greenish tint to it. The smell is like milk with a hint of chocolate.

The taste is still quite gentle on the chocolate-side but VERY Creamy/Milky! This is very, very tasty!

I then went on to try this a 3rd time…

I added a splash of rice milk to it and it did make it a little more chocolate-like…moreso in the finish on to the aftertaste.

For my 4th attempt…I got overly crazy…but I thought…”What’s the worst that could happen.”

I used 8 tsps of this in about 6 or a little more ounces of water and I found Chocolate Matcha Bliss!

Moral of the story…experiment!  It’s FUN and with Matcha – is so diverse – by experimenting it will make just about anyone a Mad Matcha Scientist!

Chocolate Ecstasy Matcha from Domo is the perfect flavored Matcha to play around with!  Give it a try!  You’ll be glad you did!

This Matcha is specially blended for a Matcha Latte. This blend provides a smooth rich texture and deep green tea flavor to make a full bodied Latte, just add milk. This blend dissolves quicker than any of our other products for instant use. Can be used both steaming hot and iced.

Tasters Review:

Let me start this review off my saying…I’m a rebel child.  I have a hard time following instructions.  Especially with my teas!  I like to do what I call a DOUBLE SHOT – twice the amount for the same amount of time.  I was really tempted to with this but forced myself into following the instructions the first time I tried Teanobi’s Latte Matcha!

Therefore…I did 1 cup of hot milk with 1/4 tsp of this latte powder.  It had a very pale aroma before adding to the milk and afterwards as well.  I will say that the milk/powder color is beautiful!   It reminds me of a “Grasshopper”.  You know like the frozen-adult beverage type.  This powder paired with the milk froths up very nice without much work at all!   All I had to do was stir!  There were a few small clumps which was more my measuring cups fault than this lovely powder and it was fairly easy to take care of with a few more stirs! No Problem!

This is VERY frothy and milky-smooth!  It’s creamy, too!  I noticed as it cools for a little bit at room temperature the flavor was enhanced slightly.  I could taste more of the ‘green tea’ come thru.  The green veggie type green tea that is…much like broccoli and along with the milk it sort of reminded me of cream of broccoli soup!  It’s quite FAB!

I wanted to try this with Almond Milk but I didn’t have any.   I used regular milk.  I am also going to try this without milk and try it with water instead just to see the difference!  And because I am a Rebel Child…will probably try a DOUBLE SHOT just for kicks!

I think this is a very good matcha powder product – I love that it was created with Latte’s in mind!  This is very nice!  And another winner from Teanobi!

Red Matcha from Pure Matcha

Tea Type: Matcha
(Rooibos Base)

Where To Buy: Pure Matcha

Product Description:

Rooibos, which is grown deep in the heart of South Africa, is a deeply rich, aromatic, and flavorful tea. Naturally caffeine free and full of anti-oxidants and vitamins. 47% more than any green tea. Our Rooibos is stone ground into the finest powder. Allowing you to consume the whole leaf, just like traditional Matcha. By consuming the leaf, you absorb almost 10 times more anti-oxidants and vitamins than the regular method of drinking Rooibos, where the leaves are removed after brewing. This results in a stronger, richer, and naturally sweet flavor you will never forget. Our 100% Rooibos Powder will leave your body and mind completely revitalized and rejuvinated.

Tasters Review:

Red Matcha is a plain rooibos base made into a powder so there is no flavoring to really comment on other than it DOES smell and taste exactly like Rooibos and what you think it would and should smell and taste like.

Having said that…

The real notable thing to mention here is the QUALITY.  It’s top-notch as far as Rooibos quality goes…in matcha form the rooibos is very clean tasting but semi-murky in the water…it looks like a latte, however, and that makes sense!

It’s smooth and sweet and I think it’s very good as-is (plain) but I am sure you can get creative with it just as easy!  If you are into Matcha Powders – give this a whirl!
