16 Tasting Notes


Morning tea has to be different than tea throughout the day, don’t you think? It has to be a spot on. Freshly brushed teeth, empty stomach… It just sets the tone. I’ve seen the Rishi brand around a lot so I picked some up to give it a try. I have to say as a morning tea, this was a letdown. It’s not bad, it’s just mainstream. It’s good wholesome tea, but nothing special.


I completely agree. Matcha is my morning cup…er… bowla!:)

I like to start my morning off with either green or black with a little kick. Jasmine usually does the trick. I don’t know if there’s something in the Jasmine, or if it just reminds my body of drinking tea in China when there probably was something else in the tea! Good times!
This is my first time to try Apollo. It’s OK. I’ve had much better Jasmine Tears. It will work for today though.

This is some good stuff. I even like the aftertaste.

I had to redeem my day. It has been a rough one with two plane flights, delays, etc. Man, what a relief it was to open this bag of rooibos tea and be taken in with the smooth flavor and aroma! This is one of the creamiest teas I have ever had. I’m relaxed and ready for bed now.


I’m going to have to try this again at a longer infusion time…I thought it was nice but thought it would have more Lemon Meringue taste. How long did you infuse for!? I really want to find that correct time to enjoy my cuppa to the fullest extent! I still have high hopes for this one!

All things green

I think it was around 5 or 6 minutes. Full boil and then I drank it much cooler. I’m in love! ;-)

I can’t really taste the grapefruit in this tea at all. I tried it 3 different times at different temps to see if I could get the flavor or aromaI to come out, but nothing. I’m really not impressed.

Not bad, but a little overbearing for me. I can’t tell if it’s the bergamot or the black tea that’s a bit harsh. It’s a little more like a Merlot than a Pinot.
I like to work into the flavors.

I like the comparison you make here with wine. I think wine and tea share many sociological and cultural similarities.
