drank Virgo by Nina's Paris
556 tasting notes

I was really excited to try Nina’s teas and this first impression didn’t let me down!

The dry rooibos didn’t smell particularly strong, but once brewed I could smell rich deep confection like cherries. At the beginning of each sip the cherries come on strong. After the rose joins the cherry, adding a perfume like aroma and pairing surprisingly well, then the cherry fades leaving the rose to finish off each sip. I am really liking this and steeped it three times without loosing much flavor! It has a light sweetness on it’s own, but I’m enjoying it with a little sugar which really makes the flavors more pronounced. I’m not picking up on the sour cherry that was mentioned in the description, but it doesn’t matter because what I am tasting is delicious. It’s a wonderfully rich caffeine free dessert tea with delicious well rounded depth to the flavor. It’s now on my Amazon wish list, but I’m not sure I can wait for someone to come a long and gift it to me before having this tea again. I can feel my willpower cracking already!

Which did you get Stephanie? I’m about to try more of the Butiki samples you sent me! Thanks for those!

Stephanie

No problem! :) I got the Magicienne from Nina’s (my favorite of the bunch) it was pinapple/coconut and reminded me of marshmallows, and I also got the 4 red fruits and lapsang souschon. Good stuff!

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! I like a little sugar in my tea. I love caffeinated tea, but since I limit myself to one cup a day, I have been exploring more rooibos and honeybush teas. Rooibos now = meh and I have upped my caffeine tolerance. BRING ME CAFFEINE!!!!
