If you love butterscotch hard candies then this is the matcha for you! Its my new secret sinful delight! This is EXACTLY like those butterscotch hard candies from childhood!

I think if I had to pick one matcha that I would never share with others this would have to be the one. Although there are so many I have yet to try I think so far this is my favorite. I just made myself laugh though because I have said that with almost every new matcha from Red Leaf Tea I have tried. Seriously though, this is so very yummy, and sweet, and just really the one that I feel will always hit the spot for me! What is even more cool is that when I mix it in my latte concoction – which is how I usually have my matcha, the butterscotch flavor comes out even more and is not by any means hidden underneath the milk or vanilla creamer!

I always do try matcha straight before mixing it in my latte and I will say that the butterscotch flavor is stronger in the latte mixture than straight which I found interesting and odd at the same time.

My matcha was composed of the following:

Size : Small
Matcha Quality: Starter (Basic Grade)
Flavor: Robust
Storage : Add Small Metal Tin Container (Holds up to 45g)

You will pay an extra 4.00 for the tin which I recommend unless you have tins of your own at home. Far easier to scoop the powder from a tin than the bag and the bag is not resealable.

I almost always go with a robust flavor, not always but most all of the time especially with dessert flavors! Sometimes with berry or citrus flavors I go with distinctive. I have yet to find a distinctive flavor however that is not excellent! I think it is because I when I want a dessert flavor I want it all out dessert like and with the lighter fruity like matcha I don’t mind a little more of the base matcha to come through. Still, even with the robust flavoring I am absolutely getting the flavor of the base matcha here! Red Leaf Teas matcha powder base is excellent!

I don’t know how Red Leaf does it but their flavors are all natural and while I certainly appreciate the health benefits to matcha I am finding I reach for it more and more simply for the flavor but I can’t deny the excellent energy boost! Its like an energy drink without all the sugar which means you don’t come down and fall on your face later in the day! This is a different kind of energy boost, one that makes you more alert and on the ball and it does not end abruptly finding yourself feeling lower than before you had the drink as energy drinks do. This trails off nicely and in a mellow fashion allowing you to ease into the afternoon or evening!

I am now drinking at least one matcha per day, after my morning black tea!

Again here is where to find the Butterscotch Matcha:


Everytime I read your reviews I get more and more excited to try matcha. I bought some caramel matcha yesterday so excited.


Oh I am so happy you are getting into the matcha world! :)
You will love it!


random side note… don’t suppose you have a picture handy of the tins from red leaf handy?


no but I can take one I suppose lol Im so lazy not feeling the best today. let me get one.

Daisy Chubb

I’m also curious as to what the tins look like!


Will have one posted soon :)


haha appreciate it Azz!


The label is crooked – now I have to fix that lol – I cut the label out from the package it came in and taped it to the tin.

Daisy Chubb

Wow thanks! You sure do deliver fast ;)
Aw I like the crooked label! It suits the quirky-ness of the flavour ^^


LOL thanks Daisy! Im a bit OCD about getting things done! I can be TOTALLY so so lazy but if I have said I will do something I tend to feel edgy until I do it! :)


the lids screw on by the way – very secure!

Daisy Chubb

ohh I LOVE that! I can definitely imagine spraying green powder everywhere if it was just a pop top haha!


Yeah I am so clumsy with my tea! I love the screw top!


lol yeah…there would go half the matcha POP!
Thank you so much for the picture!


You are most welcome :)

Another THANKS to Azzrian

Another tasty flavored matcha!

It’s a nicely-done Butterscotch flavor without being too overdone. It’s creamy and buttery and pretty sweet!

I hope to spend more time with this one – soon – but first impression – it’s a goodie!


Oh lord now I want to go make some you all know how much I LOVE this one!


Oh and your very welcome haha

Okay, I admit that I would probably have never looked at this flavor twice had it not been for Azzrian’s rave reviews! The more I read about it, the more I wanted it. Here is where to get it!


Mine is robust flavor level.

I needed a good energy boost today because I have been about as useful as a knot on a log. I have felt tired, sluggish, and sleepy and I know it is because I have been cooking and eating all the wrong foods since Thanksgiving. But I can not let this house go any longer without doing some big time cleaning!

Matcha to the rescue! It really was a comedy of errors getting it all put together, which makes a great testament to how hard it is to mess this up! I got out a container and measure the milk, it is metal so I can’t heat the milk in the microwave. I got a container to heat the milk, it was too small to mix the milk. I put the warm milk in a larger container and mix, almost forgetting to add the Turbinado sugar I had especially picked for this matcha latte.

But hallelujah! It is delicious in spite of my blundering! And the very best part is that I got a ton of cleaning done that I have had my eye on for about a week now.

My method, other than needing three containers where I should have used one:
Mix 1/2 teaspoon matcha with a teaspoon of water for a thick paste. Heat one cup milk in microwave, adding about 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar either before or after heating. Add hot milk to matcha paste and mix with immersion blender.

VOILA! Delicious latte and clean house!


Still my favorite flavor too :)

Oh my god Azzrian you are a doll for sending me this matcha. SO GOOD!!
At first I made it too strong and all I could taste was this chemical bitterness but then I diluted it and all was well.
Well kindof. I guess because my first exposure to Matcha was through a latte, I’m accustomed to it having a thicker feel. and I have a feeling Starbucks adds extra “flavouring” so that it shows through the milk, because when I make a latte at home, it just isn’t the same punch of flavour.
but, I am slowly getting used to the thinner consistency and flavour. In fact, in the butterscotch here, I quite like it that way. Its like a candy but liquid and oh SO VERY TASTY. Werthers? yes please!
This was yesterday. Made using the shaken bottle method.
Then this morning I tried the Blueberry matcha, which I did not like at all so probably won’t write a review, atleast til I try it again. Anyhow, I added some agave and it was much better, more bluberry candy than sugarless jam. THEN I added some butterscotch matcha and it was 10x tastier. Butterscotch (does anyone else have trouble typing that?!) fixes everything. I am a believer :D
Oh and a dash or two of milk didn’t seem to make much difference.
Definitely need to experiment some more.
Rating: 92


I am glad that you are enjoying it! It is SO good in a latte with milk and sweet cream creamer!!


omg that sounds like heaven!!

This is one matcha I definitely didn’t think I would ever get. There are just SO many tasty flavors, and butterscotch has never really been one of my favorite things. Well, the candies: I do love fresh butterscotch syrup on some vanilla ice cream. Yum! But this has a little candy image, so I assumed it’d be like those. However, I ended up changing my mind because of two things: my bf loves butterscotch and expressed an interest in this flavor, and Azzrian made it sound absolutely irresistible! To be honest, I got the macadamia nut that I’ll be trying tomorrow because of her too. You’re an enabler! My matcha collection is getting so big! Anyway, my matcha was as follows:

Size: Small (30 grams)
Grade: Classic
Flavor Level: Delicate

I usually go for distinctive for dessert-type flavors, but I wasn’t so sure about how butterscotch-y I wanted my matcha to be haha. Plus, I had spent way too much by the time I added this one to my cart! I find that there’s not really a TON of difference in flavor levels: at least, the matcha is always going to taste like the correct flavor. Yeah, robust gives it a little more oomph, but it also masks the matcha a tiny bit so distinctive and delicate are the way I usually go.

I made an iced latte of this for the bf (and English Toffee for myself!) and WOW. I took a little sip (hey, I have to be able to review it!) and promptly gave the mug to him. I expected I’d have to finish it off: he likes matcha, but never actually finishes a whole mug haha. Tiny mugs even! But this one, oh man, he downed 2/3rds in one chug. The rest vanished minutes later! Successful? Oh yeah! This is his favorite of mine, and I think he’s tried almost all of them.

The flavor is so smooth and perfectly butterscotch-y. And not cheap candy. No, this is rich decadent creamy sweet gooey butterscotch. Ah, it’s so tasty! I really really want to make some frosting with this one, I bet it would be beyond delicious. You can get some here:



Can I say I told you so? LOL


I am so glad I gave in! Now I need to try a butterscotch macadamia latte…


OH YES!!!! :) yummmmm!!!! :)

So I said the boysenberry was my last but I’m leaving tonight for a while for a little vacation and there is no internet, so I wanted to get this up before I leave. So this is the last of my order :( Oh very very sad. But what can you do. I got this one because Azzrian ravs about it and its one of her favorites so I wanted to see what all the buzz was about. Now when I think of butterscotch first thing that comes to mind is going to my grandparents house when I was a kid, and always on the living room table was a bowl of butterscotch candy’s. And every time id go over my grandpa would sneak some for me since my parents didn’t like me having candy.

So what I got was Size: Small (30 grams), Quality: Basic Grade, Flavor: Delicate I was going to get robust flavoring but I’m worried if I start to buy in robust I wont like my delicate flavoring as much. Oh the choices! So drinking it I definitely get the sweet butterscotch flavor but I get the matcha too. This is great! I love the different flavor the matcha brings. It brings this great earthiness to it. And its not too sweet either. Definitely sweetened this one with my sweetener but I sweeten all my matchas. Its sweet and buttery and rich. Guh this is good. I’m going to have to get this in robust just so I can amp up the flavor. Everyone can get it here :) http://www.redleaftea.com/matcha-tea/butterscotch-matcha.html

Yay now off to the country for a couple days. It will be nice to be away from all technology, get caught up on my reading. See you all in about a week, have a great week guys!


Yup the more flavor the sweeter too in my opinion! :)


I will definitly get it in robust when I run out and need more. Because I will run out and need more of this :)


LOL exactly!


Lol I get why these are so addicting! Well I’m off for a peaceful vacation hopefully. Have a good week :)


Have a great time away! :)

I had pretty high hopes for this one. Sadly, they fell short. It’s not that i didn’t like it..but it wasn’t butterscotch-y enough for me. I wanted butterscotch lifesaver flavour and instead this was a dialed back muted sort of butterscotch. I expect slightly more flavouring from “distinctive.” i suggest anyone picking this up that really wants a flavour punch – go for robust.

Thank you Azzrian for sending me some of this Matcha to try. It is YUM! I had mine as a latte … I found that the creaminess of the latte was a nice match for the sweet, luscious butterscotch flavor.

This was a “robust” flavored, classic grade of matcha, and I think that if I were to order it again, I’d go with the robust flavoring as well, because there was a really nice balance between flavor of Matcha and butterscotch flavoring.

A really delicious Matcha – thanks again Azzrian!

Butterscotch is another one of those flavors that I adore. Butterscotch anything is pretty much a guarantee I buy it. I love the rich buttery-ness of it. In my drinking days, butterscotch schnapps was my go-to drink. I love it. Mix it with a bit of milk or hot cocoa…oh yes. The best, though, is around the holidays, mix a touch of it into egg nog. Ooooh, now that’s an idea, egg nog matcha. Red Leaf Tea, I will love you forever if you develop an egg nog matcha by the holidays! I can’t have real nog any more, so I’ve been hunting for a good tea substitute.

Anyway, yes. Butterscotch is love for me. It’s another Dad memory, he loves it and it makes me think of him…or maybe I’m just homesick this week. Butterscotch pudding is the only pudding I’ll touch and if an ice cream shop offers butterscotch topping, I’ll risk the dairy allergy to get a cone covered in the stuff. Liquid gold, it is. And seeing the success of Red leaf Tea’s Caramel and French Vanilla flavors, I have complete confidence in this blend being amazing. I think this definitely calls for a hot tea latte, despite it being stupidly hot outside. Am I in Toronto or back in Tennessee? These hot days are killing me…I should be able to handle them better!

No, I went for a cold matcha instead, it’s too hot out there to bother with hot drinks, though this one was made to be enjoyed hot. Hot with a touch of rum and milk. Mmm…anyway. Yes. Cold, it’s less than stellar, but it’s still yummy. Very buttery and rich, but not too rich. I want to sip on this all day, but I need to save some for when it’s cool enough to be able to handle a hot drink. It does taste like candy, but it’s not overwhemingly sweet. It’s just tasty. I’m not wowed by it like I am with some of their other blends, though. This one’s good, but I need to try it a few more times before I decide if I’m going to keep it on my shelf or not. Perhaps a warmer water temperature will help, or a better ratio of tea to water. Still, it won’t be hard at all to convince myself to drink this one! I might even be convinced to share it.

Thank you so much, Azzrian, for your generous samples!

I’ve never had a matcha until now, so I’m super excited to try this!
Since just about the only thing I knew regarding preparing matcha was that it needed to be put through a strainer to make it less clumpy, I went off to Google to look it up. Some site mentioned that preparing it in a travel mug and then shaking it could be used in place of a matcha whisk and bowl (both of which I lack at the moment), so I’m opting for that method instead of whisking the tea in a bowl with a fork or egg beater (I’m feeling a bit lazy at the moment).

Now that the whisking part was taken care of, I tried to find out what the equivalent of a matcha scoop was in teaspoons. I wasn’t able to find clear answers, so I’m just going to use the smallest spoon I can find and then eyeball it with matcha amount and water. How I’m going to eyeball something I’ve never done before, I’m not too certain, but my mother is fantastic at doing it when cooking, so I’m hoping that I picked up that trait from her somehow!
Well, I’ve just had my first sip of matcha! It tastes AMAZING. The powder did smell quite like butterscotch when I was putting it through the strainer, but I was expecting for it to taste a bit less like butterscotch when it was finally prepared. It’s basically like a less sweet version of butterscotch, which is great, because I love butterscotch candies but dislike how sweet they are. I think I can taste a bit of the matcha base, but I’m not sure. I also don’t know if that’s supposed to happen or not, but I’ll make a mental note to put in more water or less powder the next time I make matcha (hopefully tomorrow morning!). For now, I’ll try adding some milk to see how it tastes.

Oh, wow, the milk brings out more of the butterscotch! Yum! This will definitely make my (many many) homework readings for tonight much more enjoyable. If many of Red Leaf Tea’s matchas are this great, I’m really looking forward to making a purchase from them when I’m able to!

Thanks again, Azzrian, for sending me this sample!


My pleasure so glad you liked it! :)
