drank Berry Rooibos by Samovar
1112 tasting notes

Sooooooo fantastic! I am drinking it with some agave nectar (yes, I finally found some in the store…right after our discussion about how it’s not so great for you…figures! A teaspoon once or twice a week should be fine, I think). I love the various berries that it is flavored with, and I swear – I don’t taste ANY rooibos even though it’s in there, clear as day. My absolute favorite caffeine free tisane.

bah everything is bad for you – just keep the quantities sane and you’ll be fine

AmazonV – I agree!

Kristin

The even came out with a study that said carrots were bad for you (years and years ago). I guess before I’ll believe it’s bad, I’ll need several studies and I’ll need to make sure that the study wasn’t funded by the corn/sugar industry. I don’t actually think this particular rumor of badness is backed by any studies at this point, so whatever.

Interesting. I’m gonna add a sample to my next Samovar order. I wouldn’t have thought to do that without this note.

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
