216 Tasting Notes

I drank a pot of this and found it to be quite enjoyable. Full and round with some syrupy fruity richness. I added milk and did not find any bitterness, and the light astringency was pleasant. Not an outstanding tea, but I enjoyed the pot.

Sweet and mild with some light malt and woodiness. No noted smokiness. An easy, tasty tea to drink by the potful.

Oh no! I hope you can get some rest.

Thank you, I’m going to try.

I’ve had bad migraines this week too! I should try some of this tea for them, I have some at home

caile

Well, I can’t say it helped my head but at least it tastes good, and that doesn’t hurt. ; )

I tried to like rooibos but have decided that it isn’t something I want or reach for even when it is in fun flavours like this. I had a bit left in my cupboard that I wasn’t drinking and when I saw reviews recommending cold brewing, decided to give it a try.

Well, it turned out better than I expected. None of that overly woody rooibos taste and mainly a sweet mapley refreshing drink. I probably have enough to make another batch this way and that is how I’ll use up the rest – much better than hot in my opinion.

VariaTEA

Yay! I am glad you liked it cold brewed! Roswell Strange was the one who brought it to my attention and that is how I have been enjoying this tea ever since :)

caile

I saw both you and Roswell Strange drinking it this way and am glad I tried it also! It turned out good! :)

VariaTEA

I was pleasantly surprised by it. I did not expect it to be bad but I also didn’t expect it to be as tasty as it was.

caile

haha, I know!

I love this tea. A bit fruity and floral, and smooth and so delicious. Will need to re-purchase soon!
