drank Vanilla Rooibos by Market Spice
4231 tasting notes

I’ve had this for a while, but I keep forgetting to log it when I drink it. Mostly because when I am enjoying it, it is later at night and I’m not sitting at the computer … but I was determined tonight to write the note!!!

This is one of those teas that tastes better than it smells. When I first opened it, it kind of had a tobacco-y kind of scent, and I like the smell of tobacco (so long as it’s not burning in a cigarette) but, not to drink … you know? I mean, it’s a pleasant smell, but it’s not something I’d think “mmm…that’d be good to drink.”

But, like I said, it tastes better than it smells. It tastes of vanilla, first and foremost, with a hint of apple-y chamomile. I taste a bit of the woody tones from the rooibos, but it melds nicely with the vanilla notes. Overall, it’s a very pleasant tisane – and it’s really nice to have on hand for those evenings when you want something smooth and easy to sip.

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.
