drank Chilli Rooibos by Eteaket
4825 tasting notes

This is quite yummy. Dry, it smells like cherry and spicy chili with a faint woody tone from the rooibos. Brewed, I can still smell the notes of the cherry and chili and rooibos, but they have become more “meshed” together into a unified scent and it is difficult to pick out the individual fragrances.

The beginning of the sip starts out sweet with a carrot-y note. The carrot is so slight that I can only taste it just at the start of the sip, before any of the other flavors have a chance to develop. Once the cherry hits the palate, the carrot disappears. The cherry is sweet and delicious, and lingers throughout the sip, from just after the start to well into the aftertaste. The chili weaves itself in and out, leaving a slight “burn” type of feel on the back of the tongue. This burning sensation lasts well into the aftertaste also. It isn’t an unpleasant burn, it’s a rather intriguing one. The contrasts between sweet and spicy are very beautiful in this blend.

Even though I could smell the rooibos, I can’t really taste much of the rooibos. I’m just fine with that, though!

I am obsessed with tea!

I’m currently trying to take over 52Teas – please help make my dream a reality: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/497705217/the-great-52teas-take-over

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:


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. I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. 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.
