drank Raspberry Vanilla by Zen Tea
1413 tasting notes

This is the first of my free Zen Tea samples and I have to say it’s my new favorite Rooibos.

Dry: it smells quite strongly of raspberries and vanilla. I can see the rooibos, but I can’t smell it.

Steeped: Ok, now I can taste rich rooibos notes nicely blended with the raspberry and vanilla. It’s naturally very sweet, so I didn’t even consider adding anything. I can’t wait to try it a few more times. I think I should have enough for 2-3 more cups!

Preparation

Does it actually taste like raspberry?

Cavocorax

I think so? Maybe I just think it does bc its so sweet and I know it should be there, but I can send you enough for 1-2 cups if you’re curious! :)

Ozli

I would LOVE that because I’m totally curious – raspberry is K’s favourite but raspberry tea always seems to be shitty/flowery. :/

Cavocorax

Cool! So you’ve got that and Pumpkin Chai coming your way! :) Soooon. Hope you guys like it.

It looks like Zen Teas has pretty good prices too – so if I like the other two samples I may place an order for MOAR. They’re based outta Vancouver.

Ozli

Sweet, thanks! I’m gonna look them up.

Bio

Tea: I just started drinking loose tea in the fall of 2012, and once I started I had to get more and more and try ALL THE TEAS. Joining Steepster made this worse/easier.

So far it seems that I prefer unflavoured black teas, although I still drink a few that are flavoured each day too. Oolongs, greens, puerhs and white teas are all very good, but I just don’t crave them as often.

Yet.

Me: Ok. Random things. I like animals, I have a baby girl and a devoted bf, and … I’m a geek. I like Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Supernatural, pen&paper RPG’s, online RPG’s, video games, silly internet memes, puzzles and a bunch of others things! I taught myself to knit and I’m considering crochet but I need to make time for all these things!

Ratings:
1-50: Bleh.
51-64: It’s ok.
65-75: It’s good.
76-85: It’s very good. (Buy 1oz+)
86-100: Amazing. (ALWAYS re-stock)
