This is a decent rooibos blend, but of the four in the Festive Medley package from Suffuse, I would have to say that this one is probably my least favorite. The reason: I can taste the rooibos a little too much here, including that funky aftertaste that I get from rooibos sometimes. I don’t really like that aftertaste, and with many of the rooibos blends out there, the flavors added manage to conceal that funkiness… but somehow this one missed the mark.

But, a little bit of brown sugar does fix this, and also enhances the apple pie-like flavor. Not my favorite rooibos blend, but, not horrible.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


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, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
