Went to the Phoenix Collection/Tea Museum this weekend with some friends and did tea tastings with the owner, David Hoffman. It was such a cool experience and I wrote more about it a in a tea room review. This was one of about a dozen teas I sampled and wrote quick notes about on my phone.

This tea is appropriately named! I’m not sure if the tea is named after the taste or if the taste is invoked by the name, but it tastes like a cool forest river… served hot. It has an earthy sediment like taste and reminds me of water in a redwood forest. It definitely wasn’t a tea I wanted to take home, but it was really interesting to try!

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan, but have had a growing appreciation for plain. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! And no hibiscus. Hibiscus is the devil.
