drank Honeybush by Adagio Teas
183 tasting notes

I expected this to be sweeter than rooibos, but instead I got the “woody” and “medicinal” flavors that I’ve always read about in rooibos, but never experienced myself. I’ll give it a few more tries, but I wasn’t thrilled.

I was afraid the taste would be too strong after smelling the dry leaves, but it turned out much smoother and tastier than I expected.

drank Rooibos Caramel by Adagio Teas

Smells amazing, but I’m not tasting much caramel flavor. (Perhaps I’ve spoiled myself by adding real caramel syrup left over from a baking project to rooibos on several occasions?) It was sweet and lovely, but not noticeable different from vanilla rooibos.

drank Cha Cha by Adagio Teas

Bought this as a loose-leaf alternative to Celestial Seasonings’ Sleepytime or Tazo’s Calm. It is somewhat similar, but I wasn’t thrilled. Maybe my tastes have changed.

Mixed with Realli Vanilli Rooibos from Herb + Ginger… Smooths it out nicely.

I bought a sample of this to try out as a morning “get psyched!” cup of tea… I very much prefer the red-hot version of cinnamon to the true-to-life type, so this one’s OK in my book.

Profile

Bio

20-something. Semi-professional baker. Loves black teas and rooibos. Discovering new loves all the time.

http://twitter.com/codylynnclark

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.
