drank Rooibos Tropica by Teavana
24 tasting notes

I got this tea quite recently from a friend as one of my birthday present. I have been trying it several times but still I feel a bit confused. When you smell on the tea, its a interesting scent. At first you can smell the sweetness if you don’t shake the dry tea. But when you shake the dry tea, it get like the bitterness from the orange peel and the aftertaste of strawberry.

The first time a drank it, the rooibos dominated the tea. I made the tea in a temperature of 93 degrees Celsius(200 F) for 5 minutes and I know I was thinking that the tea was very mild. It was a good tea, but it didn’t caught my attentions so much.

The second time I tasted it I drank it cold, actually by mistake because I forgot it while I was studying. Then I caught I stronger scent of strawberry but also the orange peels bitterness. The fruity flavours where stronger then, which is good. But on the other hand, it hasn’t made any marks afterwards.

The third time I tried drink it lukewarm with a fruit-plate with pears, apples, banana and pineapple, which emphasize the freshness of the orange and the sweetness of the strawberries. And I really liked it more with the fruit as a side dish.

I find this tea much as a experiment. You can drink it in many different forms and in some miraculous way it taste different every time. That’s way I am still confused. Perhaps I get a clearer view the next time.

Haha, did you red my review for this? I hated it so much! It was the only rooibos I had you hadn’t already tried… then again, maybe I should have tried it first myself, before sharing it.

Haha! I read your review after I wrote my own. I think it was fun to try something new, even though you haven’t tried it before. It’s a part of the tea experience ;) <3

Tea is a very special drink for me. It’s a drink that brings interesting conversations with beloved friends and special moments that you just can’t forget. Tea is also special because it’s the drink which me and my friend are sharing and give each other as a gift when we’re not together. Just for experience new tastes from allover the world, to experiment with different dishes and to make new memories and special times to remember to share and tell each other in letters, email or when together again.

On Steepster I will discuss the taste, the scent the mix between tea and food and sometimes some anecdote how I found it. I really loved to get recommendation to experience more in the tea-world.
