I had another cup of this to reinforce that i’m not crazy about it. Thankfully that makes a sipdown since the rest of off to Cavocorax, as i forgot to include a sample of this in our last exchange mwahahahaha


I have to admit I was somewhat disappointed with Rivertea. I guess my hopes were too high, I was so excited when they arrived. But out of the massive bunch I got, there are still a few that could be worth reordering. Too bas cause I love their presentation and all the info they provide for each tea.


I like the fruit teas they have a lot… but chocolate flavouring doesn’t sit with me.. one of the straight teas i wasn’t fond of… I have more to go through but there are some wins. It’s just figuring out which ones are the wins. For me, they seem to do well with the no caffeine ones, so i’ll likely stock up on those for summer “juice” :)


I’m not always a fan of herbals, but I really liked their banana something (but of course it was only a sample!!!)

I haven’t tried any of their teas. I think I stopped by the website, but nothing really called out, “buy me”, so I didn’t.


when i place another order i’ll send a few your way terri :)


Sil – Mmmmm… summer juice!
And awesome – more teas. Thanks. IF I ever get to go on hiatus between shows, I’ll make sure to come visit you with TK.

And Terri, I should have sent bigger samples to Sil so she could share them with you*! If you’d like I can send you samples of Assam Beast of the East
Granny’s Cake, Cherry Dream, Boatsman and/or Mulberry White.

Terri HarpLady

Sure Cavo! That would be awesome!


Great! I’ll add it to my spreadsheet and try to get them out to you next weekend. :D (Of course if you see anything else you’d like to try let me know – if I don’t have enough, I’ll just tell you!)

Terri HarpLady

Just for the record, I’m glad Sil shares the stuff I send, & I usually send a little extra, cuz I know she will. That also saves me postage :)


:) I really appreciate it too! It’s been awhile since I had anything for Sil so I hadn’t thought to add more, but I’ll keep that in mind for future swaps I do with her. :D All that tea swapping around is just great.


Cavo – You can also always drop them off with me… I regularly send parcels to terri, so i’m happy to just add them to the ones i’m sending to save on shipping. I have 2 here to go out her way at the moment


Awesome! I’ll keep that in mind!

Terri HarpLady

2 parcels or 2 tea samples? lol


Uh 2 boxes? ;) ones the BBB box so it has to go through TB but the other is all you baby!

Terri HarpLady

I’ll be back up to 400 teas in no time ;)

Sipdown (134)!

Thank you so much Scheherazade for the sample; I honestly believed I’d probably never get to try another new RiverTea blend, and this was a delightful surprise from your swap package!

I cold brewed my sample, and then took it to work to drink without having read the ingredients prior – I wanted to do a true blind tasting of it. I’ll admit it was very hard to reach a conclusion for what the flavor was though; mostly I tasted super sweet vanilla and the woody rooibos base and even a little bit of a medicinal note; the fruit flavours itself were so muddled and generic. I couldn’t even use the dry leaf to help guess because the only ‘fruit pieces’ were little cubes of candied fruit that could have been a ton of different fruits.

I finished off all 25 oz. and I did enjoy it; the flavour was nice even if it wasn’t all that distinct. My final guess probably would have been vanilla, mango, papaya and possibly peach. I’ve now looked at the ingredients and I got 3/5 – Vanilla, Mango, and Papaya. The ones I missed were coconut and pineapple; and thinking back I can sort of see how the coconut would have merged in with the vanilla and been subtly present but I definitely don’t think there was any presence of pineapple flavour.

Overall, I liked this but didn’t love it. However, I’m still so, so grateful I got to try it because RiverTea was one of my favourite companies and I definitely wanted to be able to try as many of their blends as possible.


I’m sad I never got to try them at all. But maybe that’s a good thing because with them being gone, ignorance is bliss.


RiverTea! :.(

Sadly, this didn’t work as well as a cold brew as I’d hoped. I used my usual ratio of 2 tbsp leaf to 2 litres of water, into the fridge for around 10 hours overnight. It was very woody and slightly medicinal in flavour (100% rooibos, basically), with hardly a hint of the tropical fruit flavours I’d hoped would show up well. Definitely one I’ll be finishing off hot!

Iced 8 min or more

Backlog from last night. Thanks Sil!
I threw this in the fridge last night to cold steep it and this is good, although I think I’m less fond of rooibos. But the vanilla and fruit are nice. I’m happy to have tried this.

I really like this! Thank you Sil for sharing as this is one I overlooked each time I checked RiverTea’s site (which is often). I imagined it would be more Pina Coladaesque I suppose, or maybe I feared the coconut might get a bit lotiony like it tends to do in rooibos teas but this is just a nice, juicy, tropical tea. Very, very good.
