739 Tasting Notes

my DavidsTea delivery arrived!! i am so thrilled to suddenly have all this delicious variety! i suspect i will use it all up faster than i thought. (i am steeping each brew twice when i can.)

this tea wasn’t exactly what i expected, but it has already grown on me. the weather turned cold and rainy here for the past few days, and this was the perfect tea to start my evening off with. i never put anything in my tea, but soon i will try this one with a little almond milk and honey.

this was the tea at a 5 day yoga retreat. i drank it non-stop. it added so much to the already amazing experience.

tulsi thief! tulsi thief!

i must say, it’s nice to drink something so fresh tasting and clarifying in the late afternoon. the fact that tulsi is stress relieving might actually be accurate! who’da thunk?

i like this.

a wonderfully fruity twist to this already refreshing tea.
i look forward to having it again the next time i visit Yogaville. (i might even have to pocket a few bags to bring back with me.)

i stole this tea bag from yogaville! bwahahaha

i took a tea bag of each type of tea with me when i left yogaville for my ever astute tea reviews. i drank this tea the first time i visited yogaville and then again the second time. i plan to go back soon. after i pay off my last vacation.

i’d like to do a week long silent retreat there. there IS a 50/50 chance it would give me a nervous break down, but that’s a chance i’m willing to take in order to find serenity.
ya get me?!

the tulsi teas are all nice and good teas and are a pleasure to drink. (with the exception of one. don’t drink the ‘tummy’ one cuz that one almost made me barf. no lie.)

drank Turmeric Ginger by Rishi Tea
739 tasting notes

i had this tea at a local restaurant called Cous Cous. it was loose leaf tea served in a small glass teapot with an internal basket. licorice root, orange peel, turmeric and ginger. an Ayurvedic tea with traditional therapeutic health properties. it was a great warm tonic to enjoy during lunch and was a warm earthy contrast to my summery cranberry & mixed green salad.
with the added notes of lemongrass it wasn’t too spicy or too sweet. a great balance and i would gladly have this tea again.

This was really too spicy for my taste—my sample was really heavy on the powdered ginger and turmeric. But I noted at the time I tried it, it would be great for cold & flu season—will clear out your sinuses!

drank Ruby Sipper by SerendipiTea

had this cup with a vegan burrito at harrison street cafe.
pretty delicious! sweet and fruity and tart. a little too tart for me personally, but i also let it brew too long while i was eating. i bet the second brew of the bag would have been exactly right for my tastes. perfect summer tea. i will be drinking much more of it in the months to come i’m sure.
Meghann M below says that this tea “smells of tart citrus, fresh squeezed grapefruit juice” and she is exactly right.

i do not like this tea. i can’t even think of a good thing to say about it. i’ll drink what i have. maybe my opinion will change. but for now i just don’t like it. ploppers.

nevermind. i gave it to my sister, or as she put it, “here you throw this away”.

one of my go to favorites! i buy most tea loose these days, but this one i still purchase even though it comes in teabags. i don’t generally like cinnamon or spicy type teas, but this one has a great balance of sweetness and kick. sweet orange and very light warm cinnamon. though i try to keep lots of variety in my cabinet, i will regularly drink at least one cup of this tea 5 days a week.
as opposed to a digestion tea, i prefer to think of the lost in “get lost” as this is a tea for a wanderer’s heart or an adventurer’s spirit.
