drank Blueberry Cheesecake by Pudtea
987 tasting notes

I remember not enjoying my first cup of this, but I forgot to take notes, so here I go trying it again, this time as a cold brew. It’s very sour and off-putting. Rooibos fruit blends so often end up being weird like this. These flavors just don’t work together. There’s no hint of cheesecake. I only taste gross, artificial berry. I don’t want another cup.

The issue I always find I have when fruit flavors are paired with (red) rooibos is my palate then tastes a sort of medicinal/cough syrupy sort of taste from the rooibos, that I don’t get when red rooibos is paired with other flavors.

It’s such a shame because I love rooibos, and I love fruit teas, but the fruit should definitely stick with green rooibos!

Ya, I don’t have that issue with fruity green rooibos!

Bio

I’m an event planner who always has multiple mugs of tea beside me. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, hiking, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, listening to podcasts, and playing with my troublesome kitties.

Favorite flavors: dessert flavors, nutty, melon, mint, strawberry, anything rooibos-related.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free or black. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
