drank Rise and Shine by Nordqvist
1229 tasting notes

I found this one to be quite tasty and easy to drink. The ginger was more at the forefront, with lemongrass closely behind. The green tea base was subtle and all the flavours complementary.

Nordqvist. You are bringing me back memories. Have you ordered directly from them or you have some Canadian source?

I actually ordered their advent calendar (the Moomin version) because I thought it would be a chance to try some of their teas. :) I haven’t made notes on all because life is a lot right now. I ordered from a vendor in Canada — Viking Foods — that carries a number of Finnish products!

I see. Cool that you have available shop with Nordic products. I have searched for something similar, but noone carries Finnish products. Only Swedish, if any.

This one I ordered from a different province (it took ~1 week to arrive), but at least there was no foreign exchange! :)

Bio

My partner and I live with our bunnies and cat. I’m currently working on my MSc in biology and enjoying tea along the way!

I love black tea and this is usually what’s in my mug.

I’m also happy to enjoy a cup of green or red rooibos (green preferable to red), herbals, oolongs (unroasted and red preferable to roasted), whites, and subtly flavoured greens.

Likes:
Raspberry, peach, rhubarb, passionfruit, and most fruits in general, maple, creaminess, hay, biscuit, lavender, and cacao/dark chocolate.

I enjoy bergamot when paired with flavours that mellow it (Camellia Sinensis Earl Grey Cream is one of my favourites).

Dislikes:
Any smokiness at all, stevia, too much blackberry leaf, rose, ginger (except in chai), cinnamon-heavy teas, anything cloying or fake/candy-like.

I’m vegan with an allergy to potatoes, so I avoid any animal products in tea, along with sprinkles as these often have potato starch (I usually just pick them out of blends).
