7538 Tasting Notes
so. Mate and i, we don’t get along…..usually. In this instance, this tea makes it work. It’s not going to be my favourite tea but this was pretty enjoyable. It’s got a good taste that blends well with the mate without leaving that taste in my mouth that i dislike strongly.
Thanks for letting me try this one Roswell Strange
Long day…i missed out on the chance to participate in stacy’s contest in the evening yesterday because my other half decided spur of the moment that he wanted to pain the living room RIGHT NOW….so last night i was up way too late. I then missed out on picking up a tentacle nordic mug from davids because i slept in and had a busy day. lol I’m home late tonight because i promised colleagues we’d go out and tomorrow i’ve got ppl coming over so no relax time then. first world problems, i know, right? lol
anyway, i haven’t been drinking as much tea as usual because i’ve been busy and i’m a little tea-ed out. So i’m drinking what i want, when i want and not stressing over it lol
This was an interesting tea. I had hopes for the ginger/pineapple combination, but when i picked it, i didn’t realise that there is both basil and tulsi in this one. As a result, while this is a pleasant enough cup, the ginger and pineapple are dominated by the tulsi. I think i would love this sooooo much if there was no Tulsi – it would make a pretty good tea. And i’m not a tulsi hater, it just bring a particular taste to the table and it’s not what i was looking for in this tea. Still, it’s nice to try a few more teas :)
Another sample from RiverTea. In my opinion they seem to be doing well in the straight black world, fruit teas and white flavoured teas. Everything else seems to be a little hit and miss. Hot, this one had a few pepper notes but not a great deal. For the most part this tastes like a rather generic fruity sort of rooibos. Not a bad cup but rather tasteless…
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 :)
