From RiverTea

Take a moment to close your eyes and imagine the invigorating, empowering climb to the very top of the towering Himalayan mountains, the feel of dancing high among the clouds. Himalaya Black tea’s fruitiness is sure to give you the same intense feeling of refreshment and inner well-being, while energizing you just as much as any mountain trek. An airy, fresh, aromatic composition is produced in small amounts in Nepalese tea gardens. With a mouth-filling body that only a high altitude-grown tea can have, this tea is perfect for those who enjoy a black tea with no astringency. Nepal teas are grown at such high altitude that the growing season is brief, and the leaf does not have the ability to become harsh or bitter.

Ingredients: Black Tea

Another sample sipdown since the other half of this one is going to visit Cavocorax :) This is a pretty tasty black tea, and it makes me excited to try the assam from River Tea. There’s no bitterness in this cup, and while there isn’t any malt or sweetness either, it’s a good solid cup of black tea. I enjoyed it a lot this evening – it’s a good decent cup!

So after the fail of RiverTea’s Assam, I grabbed this one next.
Fruity/Muscatel-ish in the package. Tastewise this reminds me strongly of DavidsTea’s Nepal black. It’s got the same musky sort of taste to it. It’s not bitter and the astringency is very low. I don’t get any sort of malt or the usual ‘black tea’ attributes that I associate with black tea. And it doesn’t seem to have any hint of a natural ‘sweetness’. This has a vine greenness to it (like the smell you get when you’re trying to twist free a squash or zucchini from the garden…anyone? XD). And it’s almost kinda tingly/peppery at the back of the sip, which is strange. though the longer I drink it, it makes my teeth feel kinda funny. Like there’s a coating on them which makes them sound/feel weird if I grind them together (not that I do this all the time, it was just to see if when I’m taste/feeling is actually a thing.) Lol!
This is a strange review, I’ll admit. But I generally type what comes to mind and hope it makes sense.
I’m not sure I’d order this again. And since I have some Nepal black in my cupboard already, I might just pass this along to someone else since it’s not really something I’d find myself drinking all that often.

Thank you Sil!

I mean, I think. My cupboard started at 186 and now it’s up at/around 258.

OMG. O.M.G.

Some of that, maybe 15 of it, was tea that I ordered and split with Sil, but the rest was her just being crazy and super generous and I am blown away. So, thank you. :D

Now I chose this one because it was only one cup. It’s a nice black tea, with that tannic something or whatever that I notice in Kenyan teas. It’s enjoyable though. I think there’s a little bit of golden honey in each sip, and I’m enjoying that. It’s comparable to JusTea’s Kenyan black, but not quite so strong.

This gets bitter quickly as it cools.
