drank Rooibos by Adagio Teas
183 tasting notes

When I first started drinking “loose leaf tea” (this is neither tea nor leaf, but… whatever) I had been strictly caffeine-free for years. The rooibos in my Adagio herbal sampler was a real standout, and it was practically the only thing I drank. I bought a pound of it, which is still my biggest single-variety purchase ever.

My job has led me back into the world of mandatory morning caffeine, and I’ve since fallen in love with black teas, and it’s been ages since I’ve really had a cup of rooibos. And as I said in my recent post about rooibos caramel, I finally got an infuser that works really well with it… and, I might have to bring it back into a nightly habit.

What kind of strainer?

It’s this one ( http://bit.ly/tea127 ) from Teavana, but they have a few that should work the same. It leaves the tiniest bit of dust in the cup, but rooibos was practically undrinkable with my other infuser. And I think Adagio’s IngenuiTEA works the absolute best for rooibos, but mine’s leaking and I haven’t replaced it yet.

I’m a habitually high-rater. Maybe I’m easily-impressed.

90-100 – A – I love these teas, and want to keep them in rotation.

80-89 – B – These teas are good, and I would never turn them down.

70-79 – C – These teas are sort of middle of the road. Drinkable, but would never be my first choice.

60-69 – D – I don’t like these teas, but they are palatable under certain conditions.

0-59 – E – Do. Not. Want.
