Sometimes I forget just how sweet and smooth this Puerh really is. BTW, it really does go great with a bowl of ice cream. French vanilla, if you please.

The only previous experience I have with Peach “Tea” was a blossoming flower tea and didn’t really suit my taste. However, this white tea with peach is very subtle and is much more to my liking. The peach flavor does not overwhelm the tea and is definitely on my “recommend” list. BTW, it went well with cookie this afternoon.

Although this is a fine, bold black tea, I find it to be a bit much for my tastes. I haven’t compared it to others in the same class and might find them overwhelming, as well. As a fan of more of the lighter, less intense teas, I recommend it for those who like the heavier flavors and not so much for others.

Went on holiday without any tea and picked this up to get by. Although it is good hot, everyone seemed to like it strongly brewed and iced.

Oooh! This is so great with some toast and fruit at breakfast. This Rooibos Chai has moved up the list to one of my top 5 daily teas

drank Moorish Mint by Samovar
35 tasting notes

It is a beautiful day to sit on the back porch, listen to a book and enjoy the sun. So I decided I needed some iced tea. In particular, a pitcher of Moorish Mint. Great idea. As for most iced teas, I doubled the tea. No sugar, though. It’s right enough as is.

This is the last of the Rooibos samples, but it is one of the best. It has a very pleasant nose and feels perfect for morning tea. We’ll see how it weathers the morning.

Is this dessert or tea? Either way is fine with me. I would be afraid to add sugar because this is plenty sweet without. I used to make sweet iced-T with a stick or two of cinnamon, but this is much better hot. Maybe I’ll try it iced on a hot afternoon.

drank Rooibos Berry by Adagio Teas

Since I happened on this sample and don’t generally favor flavored teas, I wasn’t expecting much out of this Rooibos that instead turned out to be quite nice. I’m thinking the strawberry flavor would go well with bananas, cream & ice in a smoothy, sort of.
