Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this rooibos… it is really quite nice. I agree though, it does take a little patience. The first couple of sips were very rooibos and nothing else, but, after the second or third sip, I noticed the flavors of chocolate and pineapple emerging.

The chocolate becomes stronger as I continue to sip. Never really a STRONG chocolate note, but it adds a nice, chocolate-y creaminess to the cup and melds nicely with the nutty tones of the rooibos, which is now not quite as strong as it was in the first couple of sips. The pineapple could be a stronger flavor as well, but, it does brighten the overall cup.

A very pleasant cup.

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
