6479 Tasting Notes
I received my second box of RiverTeas today and figured i would try all the samples they sent me since that would mean not having to add them to my cupboard since the other half is going over to Cavocorax since it was a joint order :) This one isn’t bad…it’s not as strawberry as i want it to be, but the base isn’t overly bitter and does still come through. It’s more mango than anything, and in my world, that’s not a bad thing…but i did want more strawberry :)
aaaalllll gone! That makes me happy since i AM still trying to chug away at my goal. I enjoyed a nice cup of this over dinner with my other half. I like the blend of this with the black tea, though truth be told it’s not likely a reorder for me since there are so many other Lupicia teas that i’d rather have. But it was really nice to be able to buy a tin, split it three ways and get a few cups in :)
having a last cup of this one tonight. I did a little bit of cleaning up my cupboard tonight in terms of getting things organised. we’re not fully moved in yet, but we’re having 10 or so ppl over on friday to just chill and have food so i need to get at least a few more things out of the way. Given that a few tea friends imploded my cupboard, i thought i could semi see if i could make my goal (since it wasn’t orders that did it!!) by “removing” the samples from my count of teas. At least in that way i could see if in theory i could hit my goal. Soooo here’s where we’re at:
195 teas in my cupboard.
Fake Cupboard: 120 (with a few inbound…)
this is off to friends that i know will get more out of this than i will. I had another cup tonight and it’s just not doing it for me. I know i originally really loved this, but since ordering it, i’m just not as much a fan. I may love it more in winter months? maybe? i’m not sure, but i much preferred the sample i had over my order. Different harvests i guess. not a bad tea, but just not as amazing as the first time i tried it. dropping the rating as a result.
this was in the BBB grab bag and since i try not to let things get back to TB, i pulled it out, figuring that if nothing else it could be shared by the numerous tea folks here. I figured i really ought to try it sooner than later so i could knock it off my list if i decided i didn’t really like it. As expected, this one’s not for me. there’s a floral note in this one that just doesn’t sit with me, and as it cooled it took on a taste that i really didn’t care for. In to the swap box it goes for others to try!
