drank Rooibos Strawberry Cream by Wegmans
243 tasting notes

These were tea bags, so the dried unsteeped leaves do not really have an aroma. Once steeped, the tea did not have very much aroma either.

The first time I had the tea, I brewed three minutes, hot with no sugar. It was a sweeter tea, being rooibos and strawberries, but with a slight creamy after taste, it was a pleasant surprise. There was not a lot of strawberry flavor, but I think it did add to the overall sweetness of the tea.

I tried it again, I steeped it for five minutes, hot with no sugar. This was sweeter than the shorter infusion, but still very little strawberry flavor. However, the longer brew time increased the creaminess of the tea.

It was a decent tea.

Bio

I am a sarcastic perfectionist, a computer nerd, a game geek, an avid reader, a gadget guru, a wine (and tea) enthusiast, and (in my spare time) a chemist.

As I mentioned, I am a chemist, research and development to be exact, so when evaluating tea, it is much like evaluating my products: I will find the flaws and do my very best to fix them because it is what I love to do. Along those lines, nothing is perfect, but can have perfect qualities, I will highlight those also.

I made a preliminary guide to my rating scale:
0-19 – Did not like anything about the tea, feel it cannot be saved without being reformulated.
20-40 – Did not like the tea, it can be saved with extreme amounts of tweaking (i.e., sugar, milk, honey and or blending with another tea)
41-60 – Neutral about the tea, it can be helped or hurt by additives or blends, varied temperatures and steep times
61-70 – Decent tea, needs a little bit of help to get it in the place I like it, but definitely not out of reach
71-80 – Quality tea, liked it, will try again
81-90 – Really enjoyed the tea, high quality, will continue to drink the tea, not looking for something better
91-100 – Loved the tea, will continue to brew and drink and spread the word about the tea to everyone
