This smells like a pine tree… I usually love rooibos so I wasn’t not too worried, more just puzzled. The mango pieces are huge and the sunflower petals looked awesome.
Flavor – this is the first time I have ever tasted any of the “medicinal/cough syrup” notes in a tea. I’m not surprised that this is basically adagio’s lowest rated rooibos. Epic tea fail tonight :(
I asked my mother her opinion. She said “this tastes like something that isn’t food”. I suggested cough syrup and she said “that’s it!”. She kind of liked it actually though. I’ll finish my cup, just because it’s way too late to make anything else. At least my mom liked it!

Bottom line – if you like very syrupy or sweet teas (like my mother does) this might be right up your alley.

Bio

I’m a writer and as such, am obviously an emotional rollercoaster. I used to drink tea a lot more, but kind of stopped and switched to coffee. Now, after too much stress, I’m completely unable to drink coffee anymore, so I figured tea would fulfill some of my “awake” needs as well as calm my emotions. I’m working my way through a huge selection of samples of pretty much everything, leaving notes so I remember what I like.
I love being adventurous and trying new things, even (especially?) things that sound strange or off-putting. Aside from tea I also enjoy tasting wines. The last really interesting one I tried was a dandelion wine! (And yes, it actually was delicious. Extremely bizarre and herby, but delicious).

I don’t have a set of numerical ratings set down yet, mainly because I’m very intuitive (read: disorganized and opinionated) about how I rate things. Basically, If something is in the 70-85 range, it’s pretty good, totally drinkable. Below that, in the 50-69 range, it was probably incredibly boring. I really hate boring tea. Below 50, I wouldn’t drink it again and might not have finished it (I actually really hate leaving ratings below 50, it makes me feel bad. I’m probably too nice). If it’s above 85 then I really liked it. Super high ratings are reserved for teas that totally blew me away.
