This is really flavorful. The apple flavor is strong and the contrast of lemongrass is very appealing. The spices are not overwhelmingly spicy – just enough to keep it interesting. This is kind of like apple cider – only better!

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Sounds yummy!

This one was surprisingly tasty. I think I’m always surprised when I find a rooibos blend I like, but truth be told, I am finding more and more that I enjoy. I guess there is still a lot of left over first impression of rooibos in my head – back when I first started blending tea professionally, the rooibos blends that were available back then were not very good. At least most of them.

Seems that I’m lucky, then, in that most of the rooiboses (sp?) I’ve had I enjoyed. Or else they’ve improved since their beginnings: I only started drinking it in the past 2 years or so.

LiberTEAS

Yeah, I think that they have really improved over the last few years. I have been drinking for about 15 years now (but not rooibos)… I discovered rooibos about 10 years ago when I started really taking blending/flavoring seriously. A lot of blends out then were just not as good as they’re making today.

Jaime: If you’d like, I would be happy to send you a little bit of this tea. I have enough of it to share a bit with you, if you want? If so, please send me a PM and I’ll get it off to you as soon as I can. :)

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:
http://www.teareviewblog.com

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.
