4788 Tasting Notes
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.
Finishing off the last that I have on hand of this lovely tea. As much as I love this tea without any addition (it is really yummy straight), I have discovered that it is EVEN better with a splash of dark chocolate breve creme… OMG. It’s like chocolate-gasm. YUM….
PS: just noticed that my full length review of this published this morning:
Merry Christmas everyone! I hope everyone has lots of whatever it is that makes you happy on this special day (and every day).
On to the tea that sits before me!
This is delightful. You can read my full-length review of it here:
Yay! New Teas!
The pear flavor is sweet and strong, and the buttery sencha melds beautifully with the pear. I can even taste a very faint note of mint to this tea. Very faint, but it is there. I thought that my taste buds might be off a little bit when I first tasted it, but then I checked the info on partridgeberry and I found that its flavor vaguely resembles that of wintergreen.
Delicious! I just wrote a review for this tea to be published on the Tea Review Blog soon!
This is very nice. I was a little nervous to try it as herbals tend to make me a little nervous, but it doesn’t taste medicinal. It has a pleasant, calm flavor that will hopefully help me rest, since tomorrow is going to be a very busy day!
Soothing – tranquil. A very nice cup.
This is one that needs a little sweetening for me… otherwise I find the flavors are a bit too harsh (overwhelmingly so) and it is a little off-putting to me. But I find that a drizzle of honey helps to soften the edge and it is pretty good like that.
A sweet cup with a strong licorice flavor and a nice minty aftertaste.
This is completely YUM! I like that it is honeybush/rooibos rather than just rooibos, because the honeybush cancels out the rooibos taste and just leaves a pleasant honey sweetness and slight nutty undertone.
The apples and caramel are very strong in this blend – it is sweet, juicy and delicious. A very yummy dessert.
