Always nice to get back to the classics. I really like this one.

Well, it’s certainly very berry. Tartness from hibiscus detracts from it though. Tastes slightly like watered down fruit juice, which is not my favourite kind of ‘tea’. Thanks to yssah for the sample.

Thanks to yssah for this sample.

This is very fruity. Somewhat citrusy from the lemon but very fruity, though I’m not good at picking out ‘mango’ flavour from anything unless it is an actual mango. Pretty decent blend.

Tasty but overly sweet today. And the 2% milk just tastes weird to me.

Using 2% milk today, the kitchen was out of skim. Tastes marginally thicker but not better.

Added some sugar this time. A nice change.

A little bitter today, had to let it sit for a while before a meeting so kind of cold too.

I don’t know why this is surprising that I like this so much, but it is. Rooibos blends tend to be hit or miss for me, but this has gotten some really great reviews. I’m curious about the Lemon Chiffon now, but I can’t drink that because of the honeybush so I’m just stuck with this one. The ingredient list doesn’t mention honeybush in the lime blend here so I’m really hoping I don’t have a reaction to this.

This is nicely limey with a decent creamy taste to it. It’s not subtle, which is good for me, and it’s very much nice. Thanks to Sil for this sample.

weird that lime and lemon have different ingredients in terms of rooibos/honeybush

Yeah, for some reason DT doesn’t like to mention all their ingredients. I’m drinking their walnut brittle right now that has a big pecan in it but doesn’t mention it on the package. It’s a nice blend anyway!

Drank this in the middle of frantically running around so I don’t remember much of it.
