Caramel Matcha Green Tea Powder Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. 

Oma received a package of Red Leaf Caramel Matcha Green Tea Powder to review. Oma is a big tea fan and recently learned to love Matcha Tea. 

 Red Leaf Caramel Matcha Green Tea Powder


Matcha refers to finely milled or fine powder green tea. The Japanese tea ceremony centers on the preparation, serving, and drinking of matcha.

In 2003, researchers from the University of Colorado found that the concentration of the antioxidant EGCG available from drinking matcha is at least three times greater than the amount of EGCG available from other commercially available green teas. Matcha is also said to boost metabolism and help reduce cholesterol levels when it is drunk regularly.

Here is a few details of the Red Leaf Caramel Matcha Green Tea Powder by the creators:
For those with an unrepentant and unwavering sweet tooth, there is no better tea than sweet caramel matcha. This fine tea blends the eastern traditions of matcha with the modern caramel flavor to brew a delectable tea that is sweet to take as a mid-morning snack, before lunch aperitif or after dinner relaxing drink. The toned-down caramel matcha is ideal for those who need a sweet tea without adding any extra sugar.

Oma prepared the Caramel Matcha Green Tea Power using two different protocols:

  1. Oma simply mixed about a half a teaspoon of the Match Powder in a cup and added about three ounces of pre-boiling water; then stirred briskly.
  2. Oma added a half a teaspoon of the Match Powder to approximately three ounces of Almond Milk; then gently heated the mixture while stirring the entire time.

Both ways were rich and yummy! The Caramel flavor offers a unique aroma and palate.

If you go to the Red Leaf Tea website you can order this marvelous tea in several sizes & different quality levels. Red Leaf also carries other types of teas including: Wine Infused, Blooming, Red, Green, Black, White, Pu-Erh, Oolong, Herbal and a large Earl Grey Collection.

Remember to keep your Caramel Matcha Green Tea Powder in the refrigerator or freezer to help maintain the freshness.



As a blogger, integrity is one of the most valuable commodities Oma possesses. Therefore, reviews will contain both positive and negative aspects as is appropriate. To put it in a simpler manner, this review is meant to help my readers (editorial) more than to help a brand (advertising). However, it should be noted that Oma was given a packet of Red Leaf Tea Caramel Matcha Green Tea Powder to use then review. 

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
