Recent Tasting Notes

Had this hot with a little bit of milk – nice and strongly brewed. It was a very nice English Breakfast with a lot of really rich, robust malt and biscuit type flavours and almost a caramel-like undertone. Made me think a little bit of Lotus Biscuits, like what would traditionally be dunked in a nice cup of tea – but, like, “pre-done” in tea form. Really hit the spot.

This sounds like the American cousin of Yorkshire’s Biscuit Brew.

An elixir, for sure. I don’t know what to think. I’m not too fond of the smell but I really like ginseng and schisandra for some reason, so I drink. This second serving from the sample packet has too much licorice root. If peppermint weren’t a part of this healthy hag recipe, I don’t know that I’d enjoy it as begrudgingly as I do.

I got a sampler envelope of this with my Rishi order. I like it, it’s a great everyday green tea. Grassy, vegetal, fairly mild in flavor. I would buy this on a future order.

Very, very classic tasting peppermint tea. Nice and strong with a super cooling sensation in the back of the chest after each sip. Only real downside is that the finish was a little more muddied tasting, and lacked the crispness I’ve tasted in other straight peppermint. That’s very nit-picky of me though – it’s a perfectly fine peppermint tea overall.

I’m cold. It’s cold outside. Need a cup of something. This was lying on the counter and I’m feeling lazy. Though honestly I feel like I should save this for when I get sick. This is a perfect waaabam for hitting those colds right in the face. The dry aroma is a zinger of ginger. Oooo wee. Yup. GINGER! The turmeric is there to but it’s subdued like an understudy for a Broadway play.

TTB tea! This was spicy and dirty tasting. It wasn’t that great. There was way too much licorice, so it was weirdly sweet. It was better with some soy milk.

A solidly good Earl Grey that I enjoy drinking. Wish it had a little more bergamot.

Really like this tea! It’s not showy, but it is what I expect from Earl Grey. Perhaps a bit more bergamot? I am drinking this every morning now, competing with my husband.

A bit less round and greener Rooibos flavor than the BK Tea Rooibos Chai. Thinner midpalate too. Some licorice sweetness, but an accompanying, slightly off putting seaweed taste.

A little much cinnamon bark. Not their best. The straight Kapoor Tulsi is much better.

Bright/neon green liquor. Very fresh, grassy. Not bad, but not my style.

Red berry fruit, hibiscus, rosehip layer beautifully over the earthy ginseng. Taste is really good. This is a superb elixir.

Deep Reddish brown amber. No smoke and not tons of “toasted” flavor but definite rich, gently, slow roasted notes. Some juicy, subtle plum fruit. Verging on black tea. Just not a ton of dimension.

Reddish greenish amber. Substantial toasted barley notes. Distinctive and different than the Adagio Ti Kuan Yi. Nice. Brisk, round and satisfying palate. Solid.

This was a sachet. Broken pieces. Nice, strong citrusy aroma. Again, like the ‘supreme’, missing the luxuriousness and vanilla notes of my favorite earl greys. Citrus is overpowering.

Lemony citrus aroma from the leaves. This brews to be aromatic but is more high tone perfume and less cream than my preference. Missing vanilla and cornflower aroma. Very brisk, needs milk and honey.

Can definitely smell the Valerian strongly. Also notes of rose and fennel. Juicy almost red berry quality. Really nice… Next morning update: pretty hungover! One tablespoon too much for me, need to go with half in the future.

Like red zinger with a more rooty, earthy taste.

All mint. Very strong and very nice texture and sweetness, but the mint really overpowers.
