drank Lemon Spice by Rishi Tea
1112 tasting notes

No matter how much I try to frequent the small markets and specialty shops in my area, a once a month big supermarket trip is inevitable. Tonight was my night :/

One nice thing is that the store had tins of this tea on clearance! I decided to take a chance on it, and I’m glad that I did! It’s lemony, with a bit of licorice, and some peppery and gingery notes. Some honey sweetened it up a little. It was great for a late night cup, and I imagine it’s wonderful if you have a cold.

Hmm…I’ve never thought of checking my grocery store’s tea selection ::facepalm::

We have a big supermarket called Wegman’s which pretty much has everything, ever, and then some (they have sort of little stores within the store – one for tea, a big natural food area, cookware/dishes, cheese shop… I shouldn’t complain ;) They do a great job with organics and local produce and the prices are fair. It’s just so huge!! It takes two hours just to make it from one end to the other! But let me shut up – they had Rishi tea for 3.99 :)

I lived around here for ages with the normal boring grocery, then went to college where they had wegman’s and then came back home, i missed wegman’s but now it’s BACK!

i suggest trying out all local supermarkets – they really have started to carry more and more varieties of tea (even acme and giant are trying to capture some of the fancier teabags) but your ‘hipper’ store like whole foods and wegman’s and farmers markets may end up with stuff you see more often here

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
