Yuck! Rooibos = nastiness. And based on this tea, flavored Rooibos = even more nastiness. No way am I finishing this.

Aww, I like Rooibos. Also, I would think that this log would deter me from wanting to try the Zodiac tea I got from Adagio, but…I’m going in.

I haven’t liked any rooibos I’ve tried either. It tastes dusty to me.

Jillian

The only Zodiac tea I’ve tried is the Cancer one so I could be talking out of my ass, but the flavour combination sounds a little strange. I sorta get camomille + orange flavour, but vanilla oolong??

I try to like Rooibos, but I can’t. It’s got a funny taste that makes me feel like it was in too close of contact with a nasty, post-shipping box. The type that you take from the UPS guy and put down only to realize that the box has covered your hands and clothes with dirt from it’s surface.

In the series’ defense, I’ve tried a fair number of the teas in it and this is the only one that I couldn’t at least enjoy a bit.

@Jillian: I don’t really get the combo either… I can see orange + vanilla, but why vanilla oolong? It makes me especially sad since I’m a Leo. I should at least like my own Zodiac tea. :(

I like rooiboses normally but this one just sounds odd. The orange and vanilla parts sound okay but the oolong and chamomile parts do not at all.

Now I have to go look up my Zodiac tea. I’m a Virgo.

I definitely agree. I don’t like rooibos much. I can drink it if a have to, but I never make it at home. I’ve got a whole tin of it just wasting away because I have the hardest time making myself throw away tea even if it’s not actually real tea. I just can’t. The only times I drink it is when I’m ill and proper tea tastes weird. I was told once that rooibos with quince was absolutely miraculously fantastic on ice. Fantastically disgusting yes, but I guess that’s not what they meant.
Don’t feel bad about not liking your zodiac tea. I dislike peach in tea and mine was severely peach-y. I gave it to a colleague.

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.


1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
