I won these teas in a contest that was run by Dan on Steepster that was great fun, and got me tea prizes! Dan will be running the contest monthly, so keep an eye out!

I am playing a game with the samples, this was afternoon roll #1.

I think I should try it with sugar, overall mostly a rooibos with hints of fruity juiciness.

Rating: 2/4 leaves
Leaf system: 2=Acceptable, if it were free or there were limited other tea options

Bio

I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).
