As my thoughts begin to drift fondly toward notions of nuzzley scarves, tall boots and noisy corduroys, I seek teas that will serve pleasing sippers, both hot and iced. Something slightly mutable for the seasonal shift.
Green teas are good for that. And, when I noticed that Rishi has quite a list of new tea offerings, I reached out to them for a few samples. This darling is their raspberry green tea. The dry aroma is of cubes of pink bubble gum. The likes of those I’d chomp on for hours as a kid, despite the fleeting flavor.
It’s light on the tongue. Tastes of tart hibiscus and fresh berries sweet.
Green tea is a pleasing pick-me-up sipper for workday slumps. I also imagine this pretty pink tonic would impress poured from a large pitcher into glasses clinking with thick ice cubes, while lounging on the porch with friends. Taking in all that remains of this summer.
