Cold brewed overnight, and this is lovely. Floral, but not overly so, with notes of peach. This is a delight cold and so very refreshing. I love it and it’s the perfect thing to help me drift off to sleep.

How did you prep it? I have a full tin of this (a gift) and have tried making it so many different ways (including cold brewing), and it’s awful to me every time.

Nothing special, really. I just put it in cold water and let it steep until I’m ready to drink it.

Huh. I thought I didn’t like this tea, but looking back at my rating, apparently I did like it. Ah well, it’s been sitting in our cupboard for way too long. I cold steeped it today and again for tomorrow to use up the last of the tin.

it is hibiscus, which is why I thought I didn’t like it, but iced, the cinnamon wins out and it’s a tart treat. The lemon works in wonderfully and it’s just a yummy cup.

Posting a tasting note on behalf of my brother, who I sent a package of RiverTeas to for his birthday. This tea is apparently “crazy good”! Now I need to try it XD

IT IS TOTALLY CRAZY GOOD! Apologies for the caps; but this blend makes me excited.

One of my cold brews for the day in an effort to use it up. It’s a sweet ice-winey flavor, I’m always impressed at the flavor of this one. I love ice wine, but I also love having money and I can’t do both XD. This is always a nice alternative.

Bumping the rating down for this one because cold, this tea was awful. It was incredibly vegetal and maybe a hint of peach flavor, but the aftertaste was just terrible. I’ll either finish the rest of the bag hot or give it away.

Cold brewed this for me and the wifey overnight.

I am not a lemon fan, especially in tea, as it tends to taste like lemon pledge, which this definitely does. Ugh, with the woody rooibos, it’s like licking a freshly pledge’d coffeetable.

I cold brewed this overnight, eager for a cold, grapefruity delight. It smells so good. So good.

And it is good and there is a hint of grapefruit, but the honeybush takes over. It’s not bad, it’s just different. I think I’ll drink the rest of this hot, because it is gorgeous hot.

I love this tea. It’s so freaking good. It’s like liquid fuzzy peaches. Yum. I cold brewed this overnight and it is so good.

Oh man oh man. So I added a little extra leaf because the last time I had this, it was weak.

That was not the case this time!! It tastes like a liquid Hot Tamale. Yuuuuuum. So good. Sweet cinnamon, I love you madly.

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
