I’m normally not a huge fan of green tea, but this is one of the few teas we have at work so I thought I’d give it a try this morning. To my surprise, it’s pretty good. I only steeped the tea for about 2 minutes and I found that was the perfect amount. It’s slightly sweet and orangy (I know that’s not a word but bear with me) with a floral aftertaste and no bitterness! This isn’t my favorite tea but it’s the best available at my work!

Flavors: Flowers, Orange Zest

I generally love floral, perfumey teas (and for that matter, foods), so it’s natural that I like this tea.

I do wish it was more of a true orange blossom, instead of being mostly overwhelmed by a lemongrass flavor. But it is still very good, and a nice afternoon tea since it’s a bit lower in caffeine. In fact, I wish I hadn’t brewed a cup this morning. In the future, I think I’ll save this tea for afternoons after stressful mornings.

This is an example of how to get the most flavor out of a loose leaf tea. It’s naturally sweet and packed with citrus (though it was more lemon than orange in my opinion). I could tell from the first sip this was a solid green tea.

I was thrown off by the tea smelling a lot like Pine Sol. Appearance of the tea also threw me. This appeared to be more of a light black tea than a green. The color scheme might have been from one of the ingredients, no clue which one though.

It’s in the average price range for Rishi at about $4/oz. If you can get past the aesthetics, this is a solid tea that would probably be best iced, unsweetened.

I love Rishi but I really disliked this tea. The lemongrass was so unbelievably overpowering it tasted of a bad lemon sucker without any sweetness at all. I will not be steeping this again!

Lemon myrtle and lemongrass are yummy in this. I drank this iced, just wonderful. Versatile being good both hot and cold. It’s good for one extra brew. The second brew, the lemongrass stands out more, and I used boiling water and brewed it for 2 minutes the second go. I think I might like the second brew more the the first brew! I would buy this again.

It has a slight spiciness characteristic of a chai that I do not like. I think the flavors overpower the green tea too much.
