3688 Tasting Notes
My RiverTea order arrived today. SUPER fun to get in the mail! Grand total is 176 now before the weekend….
I needed to try at least one tonight so i opted for this one, mostly because it was in the database already haha. I have to say first that all the teas smell delicious…no really SOOO good. I’m especially looking forward to the orange puerh i picked up cause man that one is like fresh naval oranges or something. just wow.
So this tea. I don’t like it. I don’t dislike it either though. To me, this tea is trying to be too much. It’s not strongly chocolatey, it’s not really spicy, it’s sweet but not overly. In the grand scheme of things, this was a tea i drank without paying much attention to it because it was neither a BAD tasting tea, nor a Great tasting tea. I’m going to try this one again and see how it goes. I have a sneaking suspicion that i’m going to much prefer Rivertea’s puerh/Fruit and Rooibos blends..but that’s just my guess :) Either way still a really positive experience with this company :)
Morning tea! i figured that i should really get around to trying the rest of my F&M teas since my parents are headed to london in a few weeks and are already asking me what i’d like them to bring back. Not that i need more tea but it’s an “easy” solution to things.
I sort of cheated with this one today and added a splash of maple syrup..so i’ll have to rate this later when i have it straight but so far, this is a decent cup that i quite enjoyed!
I keep forgetting this is a herbal and that’s half of why i picked up 4oz of this…because i love it and it’s missing the tea! :) I had a giant mug of this to make up for neglecting it while taking a wonderful bath tonight. While this IS similar in profile to vanilla citrus spice in some ways, it’s also got a bit of a kick to it that makes it different enough to make me happy and tasty enough to satisfy me..or something like that. Maybe the woozle ate my thought.
it’s here! it’s here! it’s here! so i totally opened this up and fove in to it tonight while having a bath. :) Best. time. ever. Probably a little on the pricy side for me given my propensity to brew 90% of my cupboard western style but i am a fan. It’s smokey, but not overly so…and though i didn’t try it (tonight) with maple syrup, i’m betting this will be terribly delicious that way. Not a complicated tasting note tonight but i’m fading fast and need to tuck in for the night…but if you like smoke when it’s not “hey i burned down the house” levels..this is pretty tasty. but it’s for sure got a presence in the tea, so you won’t be able to miss it…
le sigh. This is not the blend it used to be. Everytime i have it, it makes me a little more sad. This version is a dull version of the previous incarnation. There is way less punch to this one and the spicy is way milder. That doesn’t make for a bad tea, but this version is not something i need to keep on hand. I suppose i could probably find ginger somewhere to add to it to give it a little more punch, but i am not so magically herb inclined as some heh
YYZ had this a few days and it was a nudge to pull this out and have it again this week. I’ve been trying to drink up older teas, and this doesn’t quite fall into that category since i picked it up in September. it DOES, however, fall into the category of delicious, delicious teas that i love. so there.
Last tea of the evening. Stupid mail man brought me nothing today so he sucks. So this was my cup o comfort while i finished up some work things that carried in to the evening. And now, my evening is gone and i’ve done nothing fun…BOOOOO
maybe my tea will come tomorrow.. sigh
(on a tea related note..this one still makes me super happy!)
