drank Rooibos Butterscotch by Chado
627 tasting notes

We have been running around a lot on our week off, so I haven’t had much time for steepster, but I wanted to let you know I tried this one last night. It definitely smelled and tasted like rooibos, so for those of you that are sensitive to that, it’s probably not for you. I guess the butterscotch was in the aftertaste. I have not had a lot of butterscotch, although I do remember my mom using butterscotch chips to make haystack cookies, so I wasn’t sure if this tasted exactly like butterscotch. To me, it was like toffee…kind of buttery and sweet. For some reason the taste lingered on my teeth! Weird! Anyway, not bad. I’ll have to have some more to figure out what I really think about it.

Rooibos goes really well with ice creamy flavors. Butterscotch would be great!

Another profile facelift! My tastes have changed a lot from when I first discovered loose leaf tea.

I can trace my tea journey back to October 2012, when I discovered DavidsTea. Before that, I had the occasional cup and enjoyed high tea at An Afternoon to Remember, which has since closed.

I went through a period of wanting to try all the teas, and was really into flavored teas, especially dessert blacks, but my tastes have substantially changed over time.

I still enjoy the occasional flavored black or rooibos, but I’m more into unflavored black teas right now and recently, puerh. Chinese black teas are amazing…with their notes of chocolate or sweet potato, who needs a flavored tea? I had a much steeper learning curve when it came to puerh. I used to dump out cups of puerh for tasting like leather. Now, I am really enjoying them. I think it took finding good quality puerh and steeping them gong fu style to really enjoy them.

I also, on occasion, enjoy a good oolong, white, or green tea.

Favorite tea companies right now include: Mandala, Teavivre, Butiki, Golden Moon, Lupicia, and DavidsTea (for teaware mostly).

Just a note: I don’t rate my teas numerically because my iPad doesn’t like the scroll bar. Maybe someday that will change…hint hint, steepster! ;)

P.S. My profile picture is of one of my 2 cats, Holly, who is a little princess but very photogenic, and she loves boxes, including those that bring me tea! :)
