From RiverTea

With a delicately balanced yet wild and adventurous mix of white tea and green tea, Toronto Nights has chess pieces on both sides of the board. This tea weaves the modest, delicate attributes of white tea flawlessly in amongst the tangy, vibrant characteristics of green tea, in a display of sensory titillation unlike any other. Its colouring, which leans more towards the humble tones of traditional white tea, lures you into a false sense of security before unleashing its powerful wave of aromas and flavors – the vegetal, leafy offerings of the green tea; the sweet, wholesome warmth of cinnamon and almonds, and the citrus tang of oranges and lemongrass.

Full disclosure: We asked to sample this one simply because it is named Toronto Nights and we live in Toronto. So again, no rating because this isn’t a tea I’d reach for normally.

But, as has become the usual for RiverTeas, I am pleasantly surprised! It’s a creamy, nutty orange almond flavor. I’m not entirely sure I’d order again, but it’s certainly going to be a pleasure to finish off the rest of the sample. Which was rather large, by the way. There’s more than enough for both my wife and I to make a cup, and then for me to cold-steep in my mason jar.

I thought about getting it for the. Saaaaame reason lol


Oooh. Now that it’s up on my feed, I think I want to grab that as a sample too!


It is definitely tasty, and it’s not something I would ever reach for. I’m very glad to have tried it!


Well it’s on its way to me now! :D

This is really good cold, but I’m finding that with a lot of white tea blends recently. I went with my standard preparation method – 2 tbsp in 2 litres of cold water, into the fridge for around 10 hours overnight. The flavour of the orange is more prominent that it is in the hot cup, the cinnamon less so. Running right through the middle of the whole thing is the sweet, slightly thick, frangipane-esque taste of almonds. Delicious!

Someone has devoted a tea to my beloved city and the tea is a win—YAY!


I miss RiverTea :(

I oversteeped this a bit. D’oh! Otherwise, I tried to follow the steeping instructions on the package: 2 tsp per cup, 2-4 minutes, 70°C.

This tea caught my eye because I, too, live in Toronto. I don’t think this tea quite represents the city (then again, it’s hard to find an ingredient that signifies “City Hall makes me facepalm so hard I have neither a face nor a palm left”, isn’t it?), but it’s still pleasant.

Now, onto the cup itself. The label said it’s a mix of white tea, green tea, cinnamon, orange, lemongrass, rose, and other flavourings. However, in both the scent and taste, the flavour of citrus is the strongest. I can smell some sweetness of almond or vanilla in the background, and can kind of smell the cinnamon underneath the citrus, but the orange and lemongrass together are so strong that they really force the other flavours to second-tier status.

It’s interesting, but once I finish off my sample, I’m not sure if I’ll restock it.

That pretty much sums up my experience with this tea! But I couldn’t resist trying it.

My husband keeps on joking that this tea has crack in it. He also thinks this tea should have an ingredient called “drunken stupour”.

thanks for sending this my way Cavocorax I’m not sure that this is what ngihts in toronto should taste like but it’s a fun enough tea. Sadly, it’s the orange in this that makes me like it less. i love the almond flavouring and the way it blends in with the base, but when the orange hits my tongue it’s jarring..and seems largely out of place in the smoothness of the rest of the cup. Still, it’s not bad but the orange just doesn’t fit for me


Oh, I know exactly what nights in Toronto taste like, and it’s definitely not orange and almond.


ew. LOL

What Anna said, haha!


Oh, Sami, it sounds like we should do Toronto together next time I’m in town, haha.


Anna..the next time you’re in town you’d better be calling me, bringing tea, and be prepared for at least one awesome night out!

You guys are making me pine for the Old Country! I’ll be back for a visit at some point (or if I run out of money and they kick me out of the UK, whichever comes first)

Toronto niiiiights, like Toronto daaaaays, more often then not, are colder than balls, in a lot of good waaaays.

Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

This was . . . good. Interesting. I’m glad I tried it but I don’t think I’d restock. The overwhelming flavour of it tastes nearly exactly like Lucky Charms.

Alas, the last cup :(

This one is so yummy and perfect. The orange and almond really shine through, and the white tea lends a sweetness to the cup.

If RiverTea ever re-opens, this is the first one I’d get.

Goodbye, Toronto Nights.

Aisling of Tea had this and it caught my eye because I ALSO live in Toronto.

What do Toronto Nights taste like?
I probably wouldn’t say they tasted like green tea with almonds and cinnamon and citrus, but apparently RiverTea thinks it does. This is a nice light tea, and the flavouring is not overly strong – I find it a nice contemplative cup for what would be my after dinner-cup if I had actually eaten already. And I wouldn’t say no to drinking more, but I’m not sure this is one I’d crave often. Maybe in the late spring, in the evenings, when I’m sitting in the backyard watching the little squirt run around in the grass… And maybe if it’s iced.

Rob Ford would not taste like this. :P

And the rest of this is being set aside for Sil!
(rating is 79 because I like the cup, but don’t see I’d crave it often. )

I couldn’t even imagine what Rob Ford would taste like?!? Yuckie and ridiculous at the same time. Ha ha.


Um. No one wants to taste rob ford


Rob Ford would taste like cocaine, cheap booze, and his wife’s…Ahem, since he’s got “plenty to eat at home.”

I hate Rob Ford. Did you hear he’s being “bullied” by the gay community?


A+, Sil. :)


We asked Gabriela at RiverTea about the name when we ordered and this is what she told us: “For tourists, especially from Europe there is this vision we have about the night life in Toronto…sparkling, full of life.”


Ahahaha – aisling of tea. :P
Yes, no one wants to taste that!


Thanks for the slight image, Cavo, and then an extra thanks to aisling of tea for colouring in the rest of the image with TECHNICOLOUR. Good god.


I haven’t done my job unless everyone everywhere is properly horrified. bow and wanders off
