Another pot of tea please and more fruit. I’m loving the fruit teas today. My stomach is a little off today so a caffeine free fruit tea has to be a winner right now.

This blend is mostly Rooibos with a large pinch of lemongrass mixed amongst it. I only see a couple of tiny raspberry pieces and something light yellow like perhaps lemon rind? So far it’s not looking as fruity as I had hoped for. Scent is quite fruity and sweet but the lemon dominates the raspberry.

Once steeped this tea is coppery in colour and has a sweet and very thick Rooibos scent. No real fruit scent to speak of.

There is supposed to be raspberry in this? I can’t taste any at all. It tastes like plain Rooibos with a hint (a very very delicate hint) of citrus fruit. I can’t explain the flavour of Rooibos other than it has an ‘ick’ factor about it, some chemical/weird flavour amidst a light and sweet tea. In other words a Rooibos fan might love this tea but for me it lacks flavour.

Bio

I’m 26 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh. I have a wonderful husband called Richard whom I am very lucky to have in my life.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I adore cats and have four of my own called Honey, Cassie, Mr Soots and Ivory.

I also have two fish tanks which thankfully my cats have no interest in. They house an array of tropical fish and shrimp.

I am a proud vegetarian and have been for the majority of my life. When I say vegetarian I mean just that as well, no fish or seafood, no chicken now and again, no animal products such as gelatine and cochineal.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.
