2498 Tasting Notes
This is like a licorice chai, two things I am not a fan of, however The Teaist was so sweet to send me over a bit to try that I decided to give it a taste. Unfortunately, with my first sip, I immediately know this is not for me. The licorice is simply too strong. Although, thank you The Teaist for the chance to try something new.
Thank you Roswell Strange for the opportunity to try some RiverTeas. I have been quite impressed with the ones I’ve had thus far. I am really like the combination of flavors I am getting today. This has less cinnamon and more fruit. I upped the rating a bit. This is like a surprise tea where each cup is a slightly different experience.
Thank you Scheherazade for sending this to me. I am actually impressed that this is reminiscent of root beer as opposed to simply tasting like the 52 teas black base. There is even a hint of vanilla ice cream creaminess. I guess the extra 30 seconds really makes a difference.
I prepped this to cold brew for tomorrow and that left me with one serving left. Made hot it is not bad. I think papaya is the most prominent element. There is also a hint of rooibos but I think it works as it is neither woodsy or medicinal, just a subtle base for the fruit to stand on. I wish there was a touch more fruit flavor but I can still enjoy the cup.
Thank you Dexter3657 for sharing this with me. You shared so much that I was able to try this both cold and hot brewed. Personally I prefer this hot. It loses the overly sweet bubblegum quality while still maintaining the melon flavor that I really enjoyed when it was cold.
So OMGsrsly sent this to me because she found it tasting medicinal and floral and just downright not great. Luckily my experience was significantly closer to Fjellrev’s. This is cinnamony and quite delicious. I am not sure if I quite get oatmeal cookie but it is definitely right in that field. I might get more of this one so thank you OMGsrsly for sharing.
I like the yogurt element that comes out when this tea is cold brewed. It has a nice strawberry flavor and just enough hibiscus to represent the rhubarb tartness. It is a nice rounded flavor that perfectly captures the flavor of a strawberry rhubarb parfait. This might eventually get a tin…once I sipdown a few teas.
Oh yeah, this is a sipdown!! (230)
After the success with cold brewing the Chiffons I decided to try it with this tea too. Personally I think this is better hot. It has the same great flavor made like this but I just find it lends itself better to a hotter cup. That doesn’t mean I am not enjoying this tea right now. Thank you MissB for sharing this with me. It really is a great
