I got this unexpected bonus pouch of tea in my swap with DJBooth! Thanks!

I had a Tiramisu rooibos from California Tea House once and wasn’t too impressed by it. I didn’t expect to be impressed by this one either. The first thing I notice is this roasty coffee-ish taste. Then a strong woody rooibos. Then the oddly fruity amaretto and a hint of cocoa. Hmm… Someone needs to tell Teavana that a large part of tiramisu’s deliciousness is in the creamy marscapone. This tea needs to be creamy! Maybe a hint of vanilla could simulate creaminess here. Perhaps a pinch of vanilla honeybush. Too bad I’m long out of that particular tea. :(

Good evening cup. I think the husband might find this enjoyable as a latte.

I found something missing in this one too . . . it felt like the coffee was there to hit you over the head and make you forget that anything else was missing. A classic Teavana move, I’m discovering.

Might work better on recovering coffee drinkers. Maybe dad would like it. :)

Bio

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
