5 Tasting Notes
I need to get used to Pu-erhs. I just got this one and I really like it while I’m drinking it but the after taste – I need to get used to. It might be because I’m a novice when it comes to Pu-erhs and perhaps one develops a taste and appreciation for it. I’m not knocking it by any means. I like it. I need to give it some more time. I am calling it my thinking tea. The aroma is really nice.
Just tried this one. It took me a few sips to get into it but once I did, I knew this oolong would be a staple in our cupboard. It sneaks up on you and steals your heart away. It is light, earthy and reminds me of sunlight hitting the Autumn leaves. The more you drink it, the deeper in love you fall. Great tea.
Rishi’s Blueberry Rooibos Tea is hands down one of my very favorites and a staple in my tea cupboard. I first enjoyed it when visiting friends in Chicago when we ate at this amazing vegan cafe called “Delicious”. I have been ordering it non-stop as I go through it quite quickly. The taste is vibrant and sweet – like you have just eaten a bowl of fresh blueberries. The aroma is exquisite. It is an experience in and of itself from the first time you unseal the bag and the scent tickles your nose right up until you munch on the berries after drinking up all the tea. The aftertaste is wonderful. It is like you have just eaten a blueberry muffin. The taste lingers wonderfully. I love rooibos teas and this one is fantastic.
Before I tried this Chai, I was pretty burned out on Chai in general. But this particular one sounded interesting so I ordered it from Rishi. I LOVE it. It is my new Autumn tea. I used a tablespoon per 8 oz water and once it steeped, I added Vanilla Almond Milk and Agave Nectar – will have to get back to you on exact amounts of the almond milk and agave when I make it again. But it is very nice. I like that it is caffeine-free. The flavor is robust, spicy, warming and ends on a light refreshing note (because of the peppermint in the Chai). I’m pretty excited to have found a Chai I like again. Will definitely be ordering more of this from Rishi.
