My first attempt with this Matcha … when prepared with hot water, I tasted a slight artificial taste to it, and I was a little disappointed. I had high hopes for a Matcha called Raspberry Truffle. The second time I prepared it, I prepared it as a latte, using half water and half whole milk, and this proved to be much tastier. The milk sort of cancels out the artificial taste and it also gives the matcha a creaminess that accentuates the truffle-ness of it very nicely.

Awesome as a latte … not so awesome as a traditionally prepared matcha. Here is my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/02/10/raspberry-truffle-flavored-matcha-from-red-leaf-tea/

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
