Crew Review: New Rishi Tea
This entry was posted on December 17, 2013.
Earlier this year, we added a wide array of delicious, loose leaf teas from Rishi Teas. Shortly thereafter, we filmed a few tastings of them so that you could learn what kind of flavors and notes these teas offered. Since adding three new teas to our selection, we decided that we should give them the same treatment, no?!
The new kids on the block are Tangerine Ginger, Vanilla Pu-erh and Chocolate Chai teas. For those of you not interested in watching Brandi and Bunny taste these teas and give their opinions, here are the crib notes:
- Tangerine Ginger - This tea features hibiscus, so brews up into a brilliant ruby color. The tangerine gives it a bright top note, complemented by the warm spice of the ginger.
- Vanilla Pu-erh - The earthiness of this pu-erh is balanced by smooth vanilla and a hint of cinnamon. A rich brew that is a great choice for someone who would prefer to have coffee but needs to tone down their caffeine intake a bit.
- Chocolate Chai - Brewed like a traditional tea, this tastes spicy and smooth, with just a hint of bittersweet chocolate. When mixed with warm milk, it's rich and creamy, a more rowdy interpretation of a hot cocoa.
And for those of you who would like to watch the show, here it is:
