I’m much more impressed with Della Terra’s rooibos teas than their black teas. I don’t know how they do it, but I went from not even being able to handle the scent of rooibos tea to ordering 7 oz. of it in my most recent order. Gah!

My fiance had the first steep of this so I’m now enjoying the second. But sometimes the second steep is the best. The scent wafting out at me is reminiscent of apple cider, yum.

Ah the first couple sips are so comforting. There’s an ever so subtle hint of rooibos taste in the background but it isn’t bothering me tonight. A lovely apple and cinnamon balance. The yogurt must be what gives it the slight creaminess.

This just seems like the perfect tea at this moment. If I didn’t have to finish this chapter before retiring for the evening I could see myself kicking my feet up and just sipping away as I relax and clear my mind. I’ll have to save that moment for another day and just enjoy my cup while making notes about attribution errors and the like tonight.

Only one week left until I’m completely done my exams and we’re off to Vancouver though!

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs I’m working on at a snail’s pace, but so far I’m not loving them. Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Likes:
Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Dislikes:
Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
