203 Tasting Notes
It’s been a long day. A busy and good long day. I was hoping for caramel goodness. This tea let me down. It promised caramel goodness but only supplied rooibos. It tastes much the same as my red rooibos, so not sure where the caramel went. Oh well. Can’t win them all. I’ll be passing the rest of this sample on to a friend.
Have you ever had that orange fluffy dessert that someone always brings to a potluck? That was what this tasted like only if it were made with lemon instead. Wow! Another A+ for rooibos tea. I really enjoy how the lemongrass and rooibos complement each other. I would never have guessed. Everyday my tea horizons expand. I’m loving it!
A nice change from the many flavored teas I’ve been drinking lately. I don’t have much experience with white tea, but this has a nice crisp light flavor. I’m really struggling to define the taste, but I really like it. I’ll update if I can find a way to be more articulate :)
The tea itself is a little bitter, but so is dark chocolate, so I think it works. I added milk and a bit of sugar and it is delicious. I always find hot chocolate sickeningly sweet, so this is a fantastic alternative for nights when you want something sweet and chocolate-y or days when you need a pick-me-up.
Yum yum yummy!! These flavors go so well together. This is my first honeybush tea. So glad I tried it. It will be a wonderful late night tea.
Sunday afternoons are my favorite time of the week. Today, I watched The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe while drinking cups of rosy lee (as Beaver puts it in the movie – nice Cockney way of saying tea). It was delightful.
