Mmmmmmmmmm.

This tea is super delicious.

I feel like since I started on Steepster, I have been overusing the D word.

But it truly is delicious. I think I brewed it a little too strong, but it is still good. It tastes like rooibos but there is a delicate orange citrus taste to it. Not sour or tart orange, but sweet orange. It is sweet and tastes creamy. Maybe a slight hint of soft white chocolate, even though there is no ingredient in this tea to back that up.

To me, it has a very rooibos aftertaste, which is one of the things I do not like about rooibos, but I think that is in part due to brewing it too strong.

Preparation

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
