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 :)

drank Mulberry White Tea by RiverTea
4026 tasting notes

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!

Cavocorax

Woohoo! I’m really happy you enjoyed this one!
I just ordered 50g more of this as I am down to 4 cups or so already. :)
And that’s funny that you’re enjoying unusual teas from them.

Sil

yeah… i think i’ll pick some of this up with my next order… it was pretty tasty!

VariaTEA

This is the one tea that I keep going to RiverTea and looking to buy. This and Dolce Vita sounds good. If I get under 100 I might place an order next month.

Cavocorax

VariaTEA – I just ordered Dolce Vita if you want to wait a few weeks and I can send you samples of each! No need to swap. :)

VariaTEA

I tried mulberry white though and know I like it. I am intrigued as to how dolce vita tastes though so I will watch for your tasting notes.

Cavocorax

Ok! Well I ordered 50g, so if you decide you’d like a cup or two I can stick it in a little envelope and send it your way. :D

VariaTEA

I shall keep that in mind. Perhaps I will wait to see your thoughts though :)

Roswell Strange

I’m also sending you some more RiverTea stuff as well. More Mulberry White, Tea of Kings, and some fruit blends.

drank Cherry Dream by RiverTea
4026 tasting notes

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 :)

Cavocorax

Awww. Too bad it wasn’t for you! I never noticed anything medicinal – was it the cherry? I could see odd cherries equating with cough syrup or something…

Sil

not sure.. just didn’t sit well with my mouth… likely the cough syrup associations

I tried steeping this one in apple juice over night. I love it! i think i’d actually be good to steep this in water over night and then add a little apple juice to it just for fun. Overall, still enjoying this one.

Lala

That’s interesting. I never thought to steep directly into juice.

Sil

haha yeah…first time i’ve done it too

aisling of tea

What’s awesomely fun and yummy is to put fresh apple slices in tea and then let it chill overnight. You get a hint of apple sweetness in your tea and tea-flavored apples!

Sil

ooh i’ll have to try that!

drank Magic Will by RiverTea
4026 tasting notes

lost my tasting note on this one, but it was another sample from the lovely cavocorax. I’m actually glad to have the chance to try the puerh straight from RiverTea. It’s not a bad little puerh. Earthy and musty, but not overly harsh. A pretty decent average puerh. Having this straight will help with the couple of flavoured puerhs i’ve picked up form River Tea to try :) thanks cavo!

Cavocorax

I thought it was pretty average too. Good in that it didn’t taste like just earth, but not super memorable. Glad I just grabbed a sample!

drank Cinnamon Star by Tea Desire
4026 tasting notes

Finished the last of this off this afternoon. For whatever reason, i am simply exhausted today. It’s not helping with the getting things taken care of around the house, but at least there’s also monday to relax this weekend. I enjoyed this alot. I think i’d rotate this into my cupboard here and there for when i want a cinnamon tea.

drank Oolong Ti Dung by Ronnefeldt Tea
4026 tasting notes

This is a tea from courtney like her! I’m not the biggest fan of oolongs. This one isn’t bad but it’s pretty much smack dab in the middle of oolong land for me. Not too green tasting but not delicious either lol. Just an average oolong. :) still though, first tea. From this company so good to try it out! Thanks Courtney!

I keep drinking this one, so I think I’m going to need to put it on my wish list to pick up someday when I get around to placing a yunnan sourcing order :)

This one is nice!

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.
