Brewed for 3 min. It seems more bitter this time for some reason even though I steeped it for less time. Hm.

Made a pot for myself and the boyfriend this morning, as we both stayed up until ridiculous hours studying for midterm exams.

Steeped for 4 min and added skim milk. I was afraid the rose would be overpowering with the extra steeping time but that wasn’t really the case (or maybe we were in too much of a rush to notice).

I’m not a huge rooibos fan but I LOVE this particular tea. It has sort of a creamy, vanilla/amaretto flavour to it and it makes my tastebuds squee in delight.

It’s filled with beautiful blue, red, and yellow flower petals, though I have no idea if they actually lend anything to the taste. It does make for a colourful, cheer-inducing tea to look at.

Oversteeped this a little I think, though with this tea that isn’t a big deal.

Hopefully this wakes me up at least a little bit. Urgh.

My boyfriend and I finished off the box today, so I guess I’ll be waiting until Christmas time to get more.

This tea tastes like ginger but without the bite. I can also taste some cinnamon in there and it’s slightly sweet in a comforting way.

I sweetened this with a teaspoon of honey and added lots of milk. It’s not a traditional chai but it tasted delicious all the same.

Steeped 4.5 minutes. Very apple-y with hints of cinnamon. The black tea could be a bit stronger, but I might just need to steep it for longer.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
