drank Rooitea Africana by T Bar
1112 tasting notes

My coworkers gave me a gift certificate to T bar for my birthday back in July, but I’ve been so busy I haven’t made the walk over to use it! I read that T bar is closing its doors next week in order to solely have an online business, so I thought the time to pick out a few things was NOW.

This was one of my selections. It really does taste like a creamsicle, or orange sherbert, with the addition of a little sugar and a splash of milk. Delightful evening tisane. We slurped up our cups in record time! I’m so glad I tried this one. I originally wanted the caramel rooibos but they were sold out. I am no longer disappointed because this is really nice.

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
