Long day, longer night, and I was still having dreams about coming home to the Laoshan Black from earlier today. Yet, I need to sleep at some point, so I grabbed the first rooibos I found: this one.

It smells delicious, like juicy, ripe peaches, and even more so as it steeps. The smell however threw me as I drank it. Sure, it’s flavored tea, however it got lost in the rooibos. >sniff< aaaahh. >sip< uuuhhh?

It couldn’t have been that bad though, because I did drink the first 2c mug effortlessly. Now I’m on my second, and it’s much more flavorful, tangy and sweet with some Truvia.

Anyone want to try some? I doubt I’ll get through the minimum 50g I had to order anytime soon.

This sounds good.
I love peaches and apricots in tea, but sometimes if the flavor
isn’t strong enough it does seem to “get lost”…
I fell in love with the Apricot Guayusa from Butiki and in a few days,
I will have to order more ;-)

The Apricot Guayasa is amazing! I’ll put some of this aside for you CelebriTEA, and you can try it, too.

Bio

Teaholic! Currently loving flavored blacks, greens, whites, green rooibos blends, straight blacks and greens, and have a long-standing adoration for herbals/medicinals. Dessert teas top my list along with anything cocoa-y.

I own an obscene amount of tea, and am always happy to share. Having said that, I’m traveling indefinitely (currently in Ireland) so my stash will sit and wait for me, as I send back tea to explore more when I get home again.

In addition to loving tea, I’m a dating columnist, single mom, nerd, and avid knitter. I read way too much, type even more, and spend my ‘free’ time either running, swinging kettlebells, or hanging with friends.

Allergies: Strawberries and all grains. I’m having a mild allergic reaction to both lavender and some roses in tea, and thus I’m avoiding these for now as well. I also avoid sugar and Splenda where possible.
