1390 Tasting Notes
I’m craving coffee super hard this morning, but I’m trying to kick the habit again, so I reached for this tea instead with a little bit of soy milk. It reminds me of a coffee crisp, a strong coffee flavor with a bit of chocolate. I love this tea and I’m nearly out…this is sad news! Although it does give me an excuse to put together another Tealish order XD.
RIVERTEAS I MISS YOUUUUU.
We moved all of our RiverTeas into the sipdown pile because there’s no sense hoarding them until they go stale. Even if we get sad every time we have a cup. Such a great company.
Anyway, when making lunch (buffalo cauliflower wraps) I made this tea over ice. Seems appropriate, right? It’s so tasty and fruity and reminds me of a good peach tea from back home (Tennessee) with added mango. I love it. It won’t be hard at all to finish off the leaf we have left, but oh man am I going to be sad when it’s gone.
This has been moved into our sipdown pile so we will actually enjoy it before the coconut goes off instead of hoarding it for the rest of forever XD. It is my steep-to-death tea for today, 2 minutes for the first steep and 4 for the second. The third will get 6 minutes and there may or may not be a fourth steep, depends if De wants it when they get home from work. I love the longer steeps because it gives me the time to sit on my newly renovated kitchen floor and cuddle our youngest cat, JiJi (short for Darjeeling). He loves kitchen cuddles, silly little thing.
Anyway, the first steep of this was light a creamy and smooth, absolutely lovely. The second steep has less coconut and more oolong, which isn’t a bad thing!
I love this tea.
