1468 Tasting Notes

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.

It finally thawed, yay! It’s so good, but it’s a touch bitter. Maybe I let it steep too long…I’ve never had any issues with cold steeping before, so this is a mark against it. Still, I love it. To the point that I’m kinda mad that I have to share it with the wife XD.

Maybe I should go the route of making some hot and then sticking it in the fridge, see what that does.

drank Cool Cucumber by DAVIDsTEA

Welp, I went to strain my Grape Expectations and discovered that the leaves had frozen solid. Whoops. Should probably turn down my fridge.

SOOOOO I’m drinking my cool cucumber cold brew instead. This is so weirdly minty. It tastes like mint honeydew melon. It’s really lovely.

I don’t know, I may need to try more of this. Cold it’s amazing. I just…wow. I can imagine drinking this in the heat of summer and just loving how refreshing it is.

Maybe I’ll pick up a bigger bag.


This one was a surprise for me! Especially the mint.


Me too! I was expecting to just be meh about it, but it’s awesome.


This one was a pleasant surprise for me also :) only got the 25g to try so will definitely have to stock up next week!

Formerly aisling of tea, now you can call me ele .

“You can forgive a murder, but never a mistake while preparing tea.” Chinese proverb

Labels? Here you go: Femme, Wife, Lesbian, Homemaker, Happy. Don’t forget tea fanatic!

New label as of May, 2015: Diabetic. I’m using tea to satisfy my sweet tooth cravings and keep me hydrated without hurting my system or messing with my blood sugar.

Ah, tea. My love for you is ever changing. At my last update, I was all about the rooibos and now I hardly drink it. I only occasionally had an oolong and now I have one just about every day. I’ve learned the art of resteeping and coldbrewing and kombucha. I have a lovely little tea pet named…well, I haven’t decided on a name for him yet. I also have five! live pets, a tabby cat named Rosabella Francis (Bella for short), a ginger cat named Orange Julius Pekoe (Pekoe), a white and grey cat named Earl Jean Grey (Earlie), a tuxedo cat (and the only boy in the house) Prince Erik Darien Darjeeling (JiJi) and a red foot tortoise named Da Hong Pao (Pao). So if you see me referring to my girls, I don’t have kids, just animals.

As for tea, I love oolongs, herbals, and black tea. Since I am no longer working, I no longer feel the constant need for a mate energy boost, though I do still reach for it from time to time. I also drink less matcha, though I do throw a spoonful or two in when I’m making smoothies. Most of my tea I drink coldbrewed, and since I discovered coldbrewed rooibos was giving me headaches, I’m drinking less and less of it. Straight pu-erh is not a thing I enjoy, but there are a few flavored blends I like. Greens are still too finicky for me to bother with hot, but they make great cold brews.

I am by no means a tea purist. I greatly enjoy flavored teas and I put stevia in all of my teas. It’s just how I do.

I think I’m going to name my tea pet Mr. Turtle. Even though he’s a tortoise.
