6407 Tasting Notes
you know. I wanted to really love this tea. I did. But it’s just sort of ok. The pomegranate adds a bit of a fruity feel to this, but the dominant taste is the oriental spice. I was hoping for more of the spice mixing with the cocoa and the caramel but mostly this comes across as a slightly fruit chai sort of spice tea. I don’t hate it..but i wanted more. Thanks for sharing though Cavo! :)
I’ve come to the conclusion that i’ve pretty sure i don’t much like “red fruits” Give me a specific strawberry or raspberry and i’m ok. But the “red fruit” that many of the french companies create, just isn’t for me. There’s something about that flavour that reminds me of something trying to be everything and successfully being nothing. That being said, if you like that sort of thing, this would be a great cup of tea. Thanks for sharing this one with me VariaTEA! I’m glad i had the chance to try it first.
nope. not even sort of. thanks cavocorax, but i’m pretty sure i dislike the “chocolate” that RiverTea uses. thankfully that crosses off a bunch of teas of theirs for me that i now don’t need to try. this is just.. not a happy place for me. it’s not even artificially cherry..it’s just. wrong. i’d rather drink perfect carlos, and that was a pretty averagely adagio blend.
thank you cavo! This is not a tea for me. Sadly, this is one where the black adagio base is coming through strongly and the only other flavour i get in this one is almond. I know there were chocolate chips in here and such but really..it’s just a cup of "meh"lightly flavoured almond water with that adagio base.
(but now i’m SO caught up to variaTEA hahahaha!)
mmmm thanks for sending this my way cavo! I was happy to have another cup of this to sample, solidifying that i do really like this. I’ve been quite happy with a lot of the RiverTeas, that I’ve tried, though i’m coming to understand that their herbals/fruit blends are my happy place followed, funnily enough by their fruity greens/whites. their black teas don’t seem to cut if for me…at least not the flavoured ones. I have a few more straight black from them to try still before i finalise my verdict on those :)
thanks for sending this my way Cavocorax I’m not sure that this is what ngihts in toronto should taste like but it’s a fun enough tea. Sadly, it’s the orange in this that makes me like it less. i love the almond flavouring and the way it blends in with the base, but when the orange hits my tongue it’s jarring..and seems largely out of place in the smoothness of the rest of the cup. Still, it’s not bad but the orange just doesn’t fit for me
