Every time I see your new notes on this one I have to brew a pot…. ;)

It’s just so good! I’m almost out of my sample, but I ordered a tin yesterday so it should be here Monday or Tuesday. I have one more cup’s worth, though. I’m hanging onto it for the moment!

Beautifully dark. I love the scent of this tea — a little malty and a little sweet. I don’t get any of the peppery taste on the finish, though. Maybe I’m a little too congested for that…

Very nice. When I first opened the sample I sniffed it and thought, “Can I really drink something that smells like Wrigley’s gum?” Turns out I can, and easily. It’s got a wonderful flavor to it, and doesn’t remind me of gum at all when I drink it. Lovely tea.

I definitely enjoy this. It smells like hard cider, which I adore, but it’s got the creamy undertone of the rooibos. Very nice flavor.

This is like orange juice but without any of the goodness of juice. I tried it both hot and iced, and it’s just sort of… hollow.

I think I don’t like Darjeeling teas. Too perfumey for my taste.

I thought this was terrible. Drinkable, barely. Worst rooibos I’ve ever had.

This is a very smooth tea with a hint of caramel. I wish the caramel flavor was a little stronger, but overall I like this quite a bit.

Bio

I’m a thirtysomething college student (psychology major). Love to read and knit.

Tea preferences: I must admit that I’m not big on subtlety. I like my tea strong and for the flavor to whack me upside the head. I enjoy complex teas, but I just don’t have a sensitive enough palate for the subtle. I know, I’m a heathen…
