6601 Tasting Notes
this came to me from the lovely courtney as I asked her for a few of the ronnefeldt teas she had so i could try them as a company. This is not your malty sort of assam. Instead it’s more of a fruitier (but not a la taiwanese tea sort of fruity) cup of tea. There’s a boldness here that i can get behind, that is nice this morning. Thanks for sharing this one with me courtney!
sad to see this one go. I started my morning out with this one as there are still a few things to be doing around the house as we have friends coming over for dinner and board games…and i’m still working as some things came to light from last night’s testing that i need to sort out. I love this tea and i can’t even explain why. there’s something about it that just makes me want to drink it. Plus the leaves always make me smile :)
Had this as my final cup tonight, mostly because i wanted to have it shortly after the yunnan from terri… I still don’t get the fuss of this tea, though i do enjoy having a sample size of this in my cupboard from time to time :)
Final Count: 147 (7 more to go before i can say i’m at 150 for the end of February, even with the incoming teas, that will likely show up here before the end of the month…so it’s only swaps that will be able to ruin my count! but i DO have a week still..and two whole glorious weekend days left…)
mmmmm… this + vanilla in latte form was perfect tonight. Had a giant mug of latte goodness while watching an episode of fringe before testing tonight. On the whole, this is one i’d consider having in my cupboard from time to time. while there are a few coffee beans in the blend, they don’t leave that weird icky taste i’ve come to associate with some teas that have beans in them. I enjoy coffee as well, so this was a pleasant cup of goodness. Just enough left to have another cup tomorrow! :)
another sample from cavocorax. Nice to have this back in my cupboard, though it appears that i like this less than the last time i had it. Perhaps Brioche has ruined almond sugar cookies for me :) Still though, nice to enjoy another cup of this as it’s not a bad tea, just not as delicious as Brioche for me in terms of dessert like teas heh
Guys… i am massively exhausted. I’ve tried napping today, drinking lots of water and tea… and i just can’t shake being totally tired. So this is one i;ve been drinking most of the afternoon and i have to say it’s one of the few puerhs i’ve enjoyed recently from verdant. More often than note, i find myself preferring the tones and notes i get from mandala’s puerh instead. This though? it’s light and refreshing and delicious… and the other half of my sample is going to cavo for her to try and explore since she’s starting to look at puerh a little more :)
i understand why a lot of ppl really like this one. it’s funny to me hat RiverTea seems to be hitting the sweet spot with me, with teas that aren’t typically things i enjoy (greens, whites etc..) and missing more often when it comes to the black teas and puerhs. Well, maybe not missing, but not being as awesome as the others. This is a creamy, dreamy sort of delicious tea. Not even sure what the heck mulberries taste like but this is an enjoyable cup of yum! I’ll have to look at picking some up when I place my next RiverTea order. Thanks for sharing this one with me Cavocorax! Love it!
This is my face saying no. not going to happen. Sample from Cavocorax, which i’m SUPER grateful for, since this is likely one i would have picked up on my own. It smells lovely, but upon brewing it..it’s more medicinal than i can handle. I’ll pass the small bit of this that i have left off to someone else to try, just in case it’s their cup of tea since cavo enjoyed it. but this is not the tea for me :)
