This is a very hearty white tea – which is why it is probably the only white tea that I will pair with a hearty, strongly flavoured meal. Excellent, and a little goes a long way.

drank Blueberry Rooibos by Rishi Tea

This was the first tea that lead me to Rishi – I found it at a local coffee shop where I would spend lots of time doing homework. Kept going back because I didn’t know where else to get it!
Hot I add a bit of honey… but is also magnificent iced. A local cafe where I like to grab lunch is trained to bring me a glass of ice each time I order it :) Even my friends who “don’t like tea” or those who claim they “don’t like fruity tea” cannot get enough of this.
And what aren’t blueberries good in? Seriously… tea… beer… mmmm…

The union of Genmaicha & Matcha… IS GOOD. REALLY GOOD. My new favourite green tea!

Beautiful, classic Chinese green tea. I can’t get my family to enjoy Japanese green teas (my personal favourite), because their taste buds have been ruined by grocery store bought “green tea bags” their whole lives. But THIS, they love and can’t get enough of! It’s the Chinese green tea taste they’re looking for – but a million times better.

I blend this with the Plum Harvest, also offered at Teavana, and add a bit of Rock Cane Sugar. DELECTABLE. I highly recommend it. Very sweet, very fruity. It tastes like juice, made from fruit, from the garden of Eden.
Of all the tea blends that I share with guests to try, this is by far everyone’s favourite.
Also great iced!

Profile

Bio

I’m a foodie. I’ve worked in tea professionally, and the obsession never left. I’ve also worked at a wine bar (with cheese, truffles & charcuterie) and a teahouse/restaurant (with excellent artisan pairing dishes) on the side.
So I’ve done a lot of tasting… and you’ll notice I bring up food pairing a lot!

I’m all about sharing recipes and recommendations, so please feel free to throw any of yours my way, and should you ask I’ll be happy to do the same. I’m also old school with my brewing methods – so if you have any questions of brewing or artisan teaware, feel free to ask.

Activities:
Drinking artisan tea, indulging in an entire bottle of wine, savouring microbrewed beer, making everything from scratch, putting cheese on/with everything like a true Wisconsinite, spending months’ worth of paychecks on Amazon, and flipping through and smelling the pages of books I surely won’t get to for another 8-10 years.
