I have been trying to de-cupboard especially in terms of herbal tea. These RoT teabags are so wimpy…. I cut them open and used 4, yes FOUR contents of loose leaf teabags to get a nice big cup of tea. So it is more enjoyable this way, I still found the plantain flavor to be oddly lacking but adding some soymilk seemed to help with that somehow. I think loose leaf is the way to go with RoT but I don’t see this particular flavor in a loose leaf form on their site.

I’ve become indifferent to RoT- meaning I even avoid their loose teas, so if you find one worth trying, please let me know. Most of their loose teas can be found cheaper elsewhere.

This is actually one of the teas from RoT that I like :) I usually brew in small cups though.

Scott – I agree I was at the grocery store today looking at some RoT stuff and thinking “why even bother”

Amy-Another factor for me is even if I do find a RoT loose tea that I might like, I usually don’t bother, because of item cost and shipping. I can’t find any of their loose teas in local stores, and so I end up buying elsewhere. It’s almost like it is a big hassle.

While I’m on the subject- Has enyone done a search for tea, and gotten lots of Teavana results. I don’t even search for Teavana, and they are #1 or #2 in results, announcing sales or discounts. They must pay a premium for this. There really isn’t too many teas from them I want to try. I just pass them by.

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
