Red Leaf Tea offers two vanilla flavored matchas, one being their French Vanilla matcha, and the other being Madagascar Vanilla matcha, which is the focus of this review. The only ingredients in this tea are matcha and vanilla powder. I don't tend to think of vanilla in powdered form, but nonetheless, I am pleased to see that the ingredients list is short, sweet, and devoid of artificial additives. The scent of the powder is just wonderful, and really appealed to a sweet-tooth like me. I followed Red Leaf's guidelines for preparing this tea, using a generous (about 1.5tsp) amount of powder and whisking in about 3 ounces of sub-boiling water. It took some vigorous whisking with my chasen to get an adequate froth, but I was able to do so. I was instantly pleased with the flavor of this tea. It is sweet and satisfying, with a subtle hint of creaminess. What struck me most about this tea was that despite this being a vanilla matcha, the overwhemling flavor that resulted from the combination of matcha and Madagascar vanilla was that of a rich, and sweet butterscotch. I found it to be absolutely delicious. I have sampled quite a few offerings from the new-and-improved Red Leaf matcha lineup and I have to say that this may be my favorite so far. This is a versatile matcha that lends itself to being enjoyed both hot and cold. I highly recommend this tea!
