Okay so I’ve had this sample sitting in my cupboard for a few weeks now and to be honest I was kinda hesitant of it by the smell and me and rooibos can go either way. There’s not really much to say about this tea blend it taste mostly of rooibos and the nose to it smells like apples to me (I know it says orange) but I get apple for some strange reason but mostly just rooibos and I think I just figured it out maybe the orange mixed with the chamomile creates an apple smell hmmm. It’s not bad but it’s not something that I would ever crave. So I will rate it according to the accuracy of Adagio’s description and not by my own feelings (which are subjective and would therefore be very low)

So what is your rating according to accuracy? I try to be as unbiased as I can as well. It’s not easy and takes practice, but I’ve also found that by rating teas I (think) I’m not crazy about, I’m often surprised.

I don’t care for chamomile so maybe that’s why I don’t get it, but a lot of people think that chamomile tastes appley.

Cofftea, Yes I rated on accuracy not on my liking or disliking it. Yes as I said in my post the chamomile is what I had discovered that made it appley. I too find myself surprised when I rate unbiased :)

So what is this rating? You say you rated it, but I’m not seeing a number anywhere so I’m a bit confused.
