I want to love this tea, as it has great fruity flavors that I love. Thanks to the wonderful package TeaEqualsBliss sent me, I get to sip this tea. The peach is so prominent and the blueberry so ripe and tasty, also I can really taste the apple in this. If it were anything but a rooibos base I’d be wanting more and more of this, but as it is, I can barely drink down the cup. I don’t know when I became so anti-rooibos, as I liked Tazo’s Vanilla rooibos and Harney and Son’s African Autumn, but the smell is enough to bring my stomach to knots. I just can’t get past the floraly woody smell and taste anymore. UGH Rooibos Headache!

Maybe I can have one more cup before bed…I’m going to be running to the bathroom all night after all this tea.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 8 min or more

Lately rooibos has me thinking of the cedar shavings you throw around your yard, but the rest of this one sounds pretty good.

It is one of their more puckery ones…BUT…I like to UNDER infuse this one! Maybe that will help a little…

I’ll try less time next time. Or maybe iced. Or both if I make small cups!

Bio

Live in the cornfields of IL, but not too far from the city. Expecting a baby any day now (due Oct 24 2011). Sticking to mainly herbal and low caffeine teas for now. Trying to encourage my husbands tea drinking, but he adds so much sweetner he may as well just drink diet pop. I love trying new teas, and will try any tea once.
