drank Crazy Mint by RiverTea
6601 tasting notes

Thank you Cavocorax for sending this my way. Another fine sample from RiverTea that she was kind enough to share with me. This isn’t one that i would have picked up myself if only because ive been a little tired of mint lately. However, this is a pretty interesting tea if you’re into that whole mint thing. What i like is that the addition of the orange makes it not the same as other mint teas. is this a tea for me? no…but for mint fans, i would recommend this since it’s got a smooth finish to it and it’s not overbearing. the orange helping to offset the mint a bit without making it a strange cup of tea. thanks cavo!


Totally kind of me to send it! And uninvited too! :)

drank Sweet Seduction by RiverTea

wheeee! Cavocorax sent me a sample of this one in part because she’s awesome but also because she’s evil and is trying to prevent me from reaching my goal this month! heh

I actually like this one a bunch. It reminds me a little of green caramel from the persimmontree tea, but different. Smoother and more milky? nougatty? What is nice about this one too is that it feels…like a mouthful. This isn’t a wimpy watery feeling tea. Thanks for letting me try this out cavo!

blaaaarg… nope. not for me. baby sat the steeping, water etc.. and it’s still a gross non pumpkin sort of clove water ick factor for me. oh well haha can’t win ’em all!

this one is pretty good. will i reorder it? probably not. It’s a little too “something” with the chocolate taste which ruins my enjoyment of the caramel. But it’s not a bad tea, and i do like it…just not enough to rank as a perma place in my cupboard. But it’s one i’d happily swap for to try again or have a little cup of :)

Another tea from my dearest swedish chef…i’ve had success with a few bayswater teas..but man i hate their online/lack of presence. I tend to only get to enjoy them when the west coast ladies send them my way. I had this in the morning as a latte and it was delicious! I can’t decide if i like this one, or the other 2 that cavo let me try more. The only thing that bugs me about this tea is the name because it seems redundant to me..or something. anyway this tea? love it! so glad i was graced with just a bit extra of this one :)


I know! I always forget and check their website. I’ll be out there in the summer though, so I’ll have to check it out.


yeah…if i have to “email” a vendor to get them to give me a quote/paypal link etc… i just have no desire. exception being nina’s tea since i am travelling to florida haha

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
