It was a hot one today…up to 38C at one point! I had to drop in for an iced tea as I was just so thirsty. I saw that this was the tea of the day and asked to smell the tea. It had a really light fruity smell and I just had to try it. I was a bit worried that the woody-ness of rooibos would take away from the light fruity taste of the tea. I was pleasantly to find that this tea was not woody at all and actually became more fruity as it steeped. I think this would have been equally good warm. I will be picking some more of this up for the summer to have iced!

It’s pretty good, but I prefer Swampwater (from last summer) better. I like this one hot too. It’s one of the few rooibos I like.

Bio

I am a tea fanatic and have also recently made the transition from vegetarian to vegan! I always have tea in my hand and in my overflowing cupboard!

I prefer black, green and white teas. I have recently discovered mate and oolongs. So far I’ve enjoyed them however, I have not tried very many. I am not often a fan of rooibos as I tend to find them overly woody but have found there to be some exceptions. As for herbals, I am only recently beginning to drink these on a regular basis (mostly iced) as the weather gets warmer, but these I am willing to try. I have not yet developped the taste for pu’erh.

I tend to only rate and review the teas I drink once (maybe twice if my opinion REALLY changes; especially if I were to have them prepared a different way). I currently only use Steepster for logging my reviews of David’s Tea although I do drink teas from many different companies. Every time I visit the store, I try something new in a cup to-go as I enjoy going through the tea menu and marking off teas as I try them. My goal is to try them all!

My rating system is as follows:
90-100: Wecome to my permanent collection! (worthy of a 100g tin!)

75-90: Definetly would drink again but maybe not all the time. I would buy a small amount (50g or less) to have once in a while.

50-75: I will finish the cup but not my favourite.

25-50: I will try to finish the cup but may not be able to.

0-25: Not my cup of tea…down the sink we go!
