Another tea from raritea from a company that’s local to Toronto. I’ve tried a few of their teas out, but haven’t yet tried this one. Sadly this one falls flat for me. It sort of tastes like not very much of anything. there’s a taste that’s trying to peak out of this, but it’s not strong enough for me to really grasp. oh well. win some, lose some. thanks raritea!

this one comes to me from Raritea Not my usual cup of tea, but i love trying out new things! :) this is a really smooth, light and refreshing tea. It leaves a weird feeling in my mouth after…almost drying. for sure some spinach notes to this…and there’s a sweet quality about it as well – i don’t get canteloupe like raritea did, but i can see how, in combination with the aroma, i could have that sense. over all an interesting tea to try! thanks Raritea!

noms. I had this one as a latte a few days ago. i quite enjoyed this as a latte since the milk added a creamy chai factor to the brew. I think i’d make it this way all the time now :)

i’m getting down to the last of this which makes me a little sad since i’m not sure how this year’s harvest tastes AND because of the new free shipping threshold to Canada. 30$ more to hit the free shipping threshold.

Stephanie

I had a weak harvest and fell out of love with this tea

Sil

yep. i don’t love it as much as i did the very first time i tried it…the harvest haven’t been nearly as delicious. What i love about it though, is that it’s consistent, works well in travel mugs, tastes delicious with a scoop of cacao and doesn’t turn out poorly if i accidentally over steep it. It’ll be a tough call on whether i restock though with the new shipping policies. depends on how the harvests this year seem to go…i was NOT happy with 2014.

I still have a lot of it but never remember to make it :(

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.
