In my review of KissMe Organics Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder I learned the many benefits of drinking Matcha green tea. Not only does it give you energy it has so many more health benefitting antioxidants than just regular green tea. It can help you lose weight, increase your energy levels, help prevent diseases, and even has cancer fighter properties.
The organic matcha was a bit strong for my taste. Even in the green tea cappuccino I made just screamed strong. People that prefer their coffee black would love it! I, on the other hand, am more of a vanilla coffee person that's coffee is at least a quarter French vanilla creamer. So needless to say I like things sweet and creamy. Probably why I love Starbucks Café Vanilla Frappuccinos.
Red Leaf Tea Caramel Matcha Green Tea Powder (I received a sample sized portion of this for free) was so much more tastier to me than the strong flavoring of plain organic matcha. As soon as you opened the package the caramel scent immersed into the air. To me it kind of had a butterscotch candy type scent. You know when things smell how something tastes or vice versa. That's how it was.
I decided to make Red Leaf Tea's suggested recipe of a Caramel Green Tea Hot Latte.
Step 1: Add 1/2 tsp Caramel Matcha to a mug.
Step 2: Poor 6 ounces of hot milk over the Caramel Matcha and stir. 6 ounces of milk was plenty hot at 40 seconds in my microwave.
I used a mini electronic frother to make sure it was mixed well. I learned from my clumping experience with the organic matcha to mix well – otherwise some not so tasty, STRONG clumps will be heading your mouths way.
Step 3: Dollop with frothed milk and serve. Yum! Very creamy and not at all bitter.
