Today has been a drink-lots-of-tea day for me, tired and worn out. So I started off early this morning with a cup of Orange Rooibos because I knew I wanted a nap and didn’t want any caffeine in my tea. I’ve been enjoying the Orange Rooibos for awhile now, this is just my first Tealog of it. Now that it’s cold out, my tea consumption should increase. On the whole, I love rooiboses and prefer red rooiboses to green ones. The Orange Rooibos tastes smooth and red-Earthy/twiggy like a red rooibos and the orange is noticeable with a nice hint of bitter.

I had a second brewing before I had lunch, which was leftovers from dinner last night – salt&pepper-crusted roast salmon, winter squash with nutmeg and brown sugar, and asparagus with pecorino and lemon. It was just as strong and good as the first.

Deep blue pottery mug. 1.5 tsp.
2nd brewing: 6 min.

Well, the tea sounds good, but dinner sounds even better!

Hah! I knew I couldn’t be the only one. You and I may be the only two people on this site that actively like rooibos. Surely there must be others…

I know. I’m pretty surprised about that. Go team rooibos!

I love rooibos! Just tried it for the first time last month. I was amazed that I had never tried it before- it’s so refreshing to drink. Recently drinking the vanilla one by Celestial Seasonings. But my first taste was African Nectar by Mighty Leaf and it was really good!

Bio

I’m 33 years old, studying pharmacy, and have a surly cat named Bin. I love tea, coffee, beer, wine, and most things food and beverage related. I also love music, movies, reading, writing, and learning new things.

I’ve drank tea all my life but about five to six years ago, my close friend Spautz got into tea and got me more into tea. I drink black teas and tisanes/herbals most. Since receiving a variable temperature kettle from my parents for Xmas this past year, I’ve been drinking more greens, oolongs, and whites. I’m very very new to puerh. That is, I’ve had only one.
