Decided to try a cup of this today, not sure why I ordered it since it contains dairy and I am not a fan but here we go anyway.

Something about this smells a bit odd after it’s steeping, like a sour dirty yogurt. I’ve had this complaint about rooibos blends before so it isn’t terribly new. I’m getting a lot of lime in the flavor and maybe a bit of lemon. there’s nothing about this that really reminds me of a tart, however. The flavor was much improved after adding some stevia and soymilk but this really isn’t one of my favorites from Della Terra. I much preferred the lemon chiffon for some reason.

Happy to swap if anyone wants to try it.

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
