188 Tasting Notes

This is a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine. It is expensive, but tasty. It doesn’t taste as fake as some diet bottled teas. I would prefer not to have artificial sweetener, but this is a good alternative to sugary sweetened teas. The tropical flavoring is great. The tea flavor is kind of typical of bottled teas and not super strong, but still tasty.

We bought this right when it came out because we’re huge Bret Michael’s fans (interestingly enough, I think I am a bigger fan of him now than I was in the 80s), but I can’t drink it because I’m allergic to aspartame. Hubby tried it and didn’t really care for it, but my BIL likes it alright, so we occasionally will get some of this for when he visits.

1/2 tsp rooibos, 1/2 tsp spearmint, 3/4 tsp cacao nibs, with 8 oz water, then iced to make 16 oz.. Refreshing with a hint of chocolate and subtle sweetness.

Matcha limeade is delicious – 2 Tbsp each sugar and lime juice, 1 tsp matcha and 16 oz water and ice. The sweet and sour limeade is a perfect complement to the slight bitterness of the matcha.

that sounds great! I’m going to try this soon.

drank Coconut Oolong by Rishi Tea

Earthy and nutty, with a subtle coconut flavor this is not too sweet.

Unfortunately this seems to leave coconut flavor residue in my Breville, so I’ll have to steep this in the cup unless I want to clean it afterwards, but it’s worth the extra trouble.

My first try at matcha. This was from the bulk section of a local natural foods store, so I don’t really know anything about it except that it was about 1/3 the price by weight of the Rishi matcha. I prepared 1 tsp with about 1 cup of 175 degree F water. At first I mostly tasted the bitterness, but after a while, vegetal and subtly sweet flavors began to emerge. Any suggestions or references for preparing matcha would be greatly appreciated.

This tea is quite tasty. Sweet, very coconutty and nice rum flavor. The green tea base is somewhat muted, not too astringent, which I like. I feel like this would be better iced than hot — I will have to try it out on a warm day.

Delicious. This tea goes beyond just chocolate and rooibos flavors – there are vanilla notes that add to the richness. With some soymilk, this is a perfect tea to have for dessert.

This tea is light and refreshing. I’ve had it both hot and iced, but I think I prefer it iced. If hot, I prefer it a little on the weaker side. The cucumber flavor is subtle and blends nicely with the white tea and other herbal flavors.

I’m always passing this one up for various loose leaf teas, but this tea really has great flavor when steeped strong with soymilk and sugar added.
