Point Loma Tea

Recent Tasting Notes

Earthy rooibos, creamy citrus zest, this is beautiful. The creamy orange isn’t subtle, but it’s not strong enough to label this acidic. This is the closest I can imagine an upscale orangesicle rooibos tea could be, not a cheap artificial flavor kind. Imagining San Diego while drinking this is about right. The smell of the citrus zest almost implies strength, but the creaminess tempers it nicely. It has an almost implied cinnamon note. Husband says it smells like potpourri. He doesn’t like many flavored teas, he’s a classic kind of guy.

Brewed as recommended; 1 rounded teaspoon per cup, steeped 8.5 minutes at 210 degrees.

Flavors: Orange Zest

I love Earl Grey tea in general, and I love the Creme versions for a standard cuppa. Point Loma Tea is run by a wonderful woman who gets the teas from a certified fair trade vendor and hand-blends the teas and it shows. I love this tea from an Earl Grey standpoint, and I like it from the Creme standpoint. I would buy and drink this again.

The loose leaf smells citrusy and slightly creamy and medium strength. When brewed, it opens up and the bergamot comes out a bit more, but the creaminess is still there. It tastes a bit more mild in the cream and the bergamot is the forefront flavor.
