This is actually the first rooibos EG I’ve tried, and I’m happy to say that it really works. The rooibos is rich and delicious with a natural note of something like vanilla (though there’s probably flavoring too). The bergamot is understated, but it works. I didn’t use any milk the first time because I didn’t want to cover up the flavors. I’ve since had it with milk, which actually makes it even better. It’s so desserty. The vanilla flavor is so strong. You won’t be fooled into thinking it’s black tea, but it’s good. The resteep is a bit weird with this one, very rooibosy.

Steepster is glitching for me, so I can only access it using my laptop, which I don’t use very often, so I unfortunately will not be as active on here as I prefer to be.

I’m an event planner who always has two 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, and listening to podcasts.

Favorite flavors: Almond, strawberry, nutty, dessert flavors, melon, mint, 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. 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
