160 Tasting Notes
Maybe if I think of this as more of a light chai, that will help me rationalize this tea. It just does not invoke Christmas cookie.
It tastes like a nice light chai with some orange and ginger. It’s good…I like it, as I do like chai, orange, and ginger. It’s not a really bold chai flavor…while I do like bold chai teas, sometimes you want something nice and light.
I really like this tea!
I tend to compare my black teas to something like my Twinings Irish Breakfast, or an English breakfast tea. This isn’t anything like those teas. It is very smooth and mild. I love those websites that tell you the tea has notes of this or that…I must have an unsophisticated palate because I don’t taste any of that. I can tell you that it tastes sweet (and yes, I do sweeten my teas because I like them that way, and I might as well drink them how I like them, eh?). I don’t know what the flavor is that was added (there are organic flavors in here, but I couldn’t tell you which ones).
Sorry to see RiverTea go…this tea is a favorite of mine. Nice and light, but with good flavors of orange and almond. I have enough for one more cup left, and then it’s gone. It is one I would have re-stocked.
I still don’t know why it is called Toronto Nights, but it’s a good tea, nonetheless.
I think I would have loved this without the jasmine. I get a lot of the ginger/pear, and then at the end of the sip, just this taste of FLOWER. Like I just drank a flower shop.
To be fair, I’ve never had anything with jasmine before, but I can tell you I’ll be steering clear of it from now on.
It tastes like fall with the pumpkin and the apple. Not anything earth-shattering, but not really bod, which is fine when I don’t want a bold tea, but something else besides a white tea base.
I think it tastes better hot, but I can taste most everything still. I don’t know what comes out stronger…probably the apple. I swear, everything that has apple just screams APPLE to me…it’s always a very dominant flavor.
