Why do some rooibos teas make me feel like I’m having an allergic reaction, while others I’m just fine with? This is, unfortunately, one of the teas that makes me feel like the back of my throat is scratched out. I’m so confused. Into the swap box it goes.

Regardless, it’s a beautiful tea. Creamy, coconut, really does make me think of pie. Truvia added makes it that much better.

was it green or red? the greens bother me less than the reds, but i can’t tell you why.

Red. I’m 100% fine with greens. Only some red rooibos bugs me though. I even strained this one three times.

JustJames

red gets me each and every time. 80\ without fail.

Bio

Teaholic! Currently loving flavored blacks, greens, whites and 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 (like Laoshan Black, any of Verdant’s chai’s and Whispering Pines’ Mint Chocolate Chip). Missing living near a tea shoppe that offers a lot of options; other than DAVIDs a few blocks away, I’m buying most of my stuff online. Still, I have more than two cupboards devoted to tea, and a ridiculous amount of it!

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.

I love tea swaps, and will gladly swap anything I have that I have enough of to share.

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.
