1425 Tasting Notes
Oh yum. Yum yum yum.
It’s mild because I didn’t steep it super hot, but the spices and the pumpkininess are so delicious. Yes, pumpkininess. Also some fruitiness that I think might be from the base tea.
I added a touch of cream, and will definitely resteep (because this time I remembered to put the leaves in the fridge right away to keep them safe).
I’m kinda sad I didn’t pick any of this up in my friends birthday order, but that’s OK. I’ll enjoy what I have and keep whichever version is available on my order list.
Steeped for about 10 minutes as my coffee cream + water mix heated up on the stove. Pretty much just steeped until the caramel all dissolved.
SO GOOD. Incredibly rich, I mean, this drink has got to be 10% milk fat. But so good! Definitely recommend this as some sort of tea latte.
Thank you, Roswell Strange! This is from the SSTTB, but it was a sample added just for me. :)
This is really nice. I really like the papaya in it. Quite different from Gold Rush. Not nearly as sweet, for one thing. Also, no coconut.
This tea is sweet and creamy. Definitely something I’ll pick up if I order from River Tea.
First I’ll do a couple re-steeps, then I need to cold steep and see how it works that way!
A giant mug, with honey.
I tried to go to bed about 7:30 this evening, but ended up getting up about 9:30 because I couldn’t get to sleep. So tired, but no sleeping. Boo!
So now it’s midnight and I’m still up. Hopefully sipping on this delicious herbal will help kickstart the sleepiness. I have flux on my computer, so there is no blue light in my eyes keeping me awake. :)
This tea is delicious, sweet and fruity and medicinal all at once. I like it so much! Definitely something I need to keep stocked, especially since the price is so reasonable. (My other favourite hot herbal is Verdant’s Ginger Sage Winter Spa Blend. It’s on the opposite of the reasonable spectrum, but SO amazing in the winter or when I’m feeling under the weather.)
Flavors: Berry, Medicinal, Sweet
Oh this is really nice! So glad I grabbed some from the bag I got for Bear with Me. :)
Really gentle, almost candy-like grapefruit. Nice white tea that didn’t go bitter. I added a couple tiny pieces of rock sugar to my mug, so that might have something to do with the “candy”, but IDK. This is a really nice white tea.
Tempted to cold steep the used leaves, but overnight is too long I think. I’ll keep them and see if I manage to cold steep tomorrow. The leaves still smell fantastic, so I think I’d get another cup. :)
(2 heaping tsp, 14 oz water, 160F, 3 minutes, 2 pieces rock sugar.)
Flavors: Candy, Citrus, Floral, Grapefruit
Cold brewed overnight. I only had one packet, but used it to make 1L of iced tea. It was mostly tart hibiscus with a hint of blueberry this morning. Good, but not delicious. I think I’ll stick with Juicy Blueberry from Zen Tea as my blueberry herbal tea. Oh, or the Blueberry Rooibos from SOKO.
One mug left!
Kinda sad to see it go, because I do really like this tea, but after this cup I’m not too sad. You see, it’s starting to taste a little chemical to me. :(
Oh well. Right now it’s still delicious citrus/berry/herbal stuff, even though I can taste the flavouring!
(Made strong and poured over ice to make 16+ oz.)
