drank Old Flame by White August
78 tasting notes

All right second tea from White August, this smells just like the description, vanilla and rooibos. It smells like a sweet woodsy forest! I love the name of this tea, there is something to be said about creative names!

After the steep the liquor was such a beautiful deep red color, I love it! The smell is still the same but a bit stronger on the rooibos. First sip, hmmmm….

Need to try another sip… still not much, it is not a very strong flavor at all, truth be told I would say it almost just tastes like slightly sweetened water. The smell is pretty vanilla and I was expecting that to be the flavor, or at least be able to taste the rooibos (even though I don’t really like strong rooibos flavor at least it would be something).

Even after it cools it still does not have much flavor, but at the same time it is still comforting just drinking something warm that smells pretty darn good, but I just wish that it had a bit more taste!

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 5 min, 45 sec

Bio

I have been wanting to drink tea for about a year now. I love the idea of tea but I go through times when I don’t drink any…. I know that it is good for me but sometimes I just don’t make it. I think that finding a place like this will help me remember to drink happiness! I have really only tried Teavanna teas and have a whole cupboard full of them. I recently just bought a few teas from other companies and are waiting impatiently for them! :)

I tend to like fruity teas or spicy, sweet teas. I like them to have lots and lots of flavor. I am looking the ultimate chocolate tea and the ultimate coconut tea. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

This forum looks like such a friendly and warm place, I can’t wait to learn more and more about tea as well as enjoy all of the different kinds.
