Thank you to CelebriTEA for sharing some of this with me. :)

I needed to start drinking rooibos earlier than I did tonight, and this was an excellent choice to start with. I get mostly peach out of this bagged rooibos blend, and while I do miss the ginger (because I LOVE ginger), I’m quite content with a peach rooibos as well.

drank Darjeeling by Tea of Life
129 tasting notes

Please be patient with me…new to writing tasting notes.
This is a regret of purchase.
All that comes to mind is harsh, bitter, astringent.
The label says to steep 176-194degrees for 4-5 minutes,
But it was getting rather darked so I stopped at 3 minutes.
Honey did not help, but I think if I had let it steep longer
It would have been undrinkable.
Another day I will try this as an Iced Tea and add another note.

I snagged this at my TJMaxx, which surprisingly has a wide tea selection – some teas better than others, but pretty cheap so they’re worth a gamble.

Chamomile tea is my favorite, and this has a really nice flavor – not too strong, and not too subtle. And sweet enough for me, that I didn’t add any agave. Big fan!

This one wasn’t too bad. It’s black and it’s got a rather nice fruity flavoring to it. It was not perfect though.

This was neither under- nor overwhelming. It’s a very generic fruit flavored black tea that I’ve seen done far better and far worse.

drank Mint Julep by Tea of Life

I made this tea quite strong since that was what I was in the mood for today and surprisingly, the mint flavor stood up well and wasn’t overpowered by the black tea.

I cold-brewed this tea again. This is now in my top 5 cold brew teas! So delicious, refreshing, and light. I love the slightly sweet berry taste to it. It isn’t tart either. mMmm.

Backlog: This is a surprisingly good tea! I had this in my travel mug on my way to work. I was expecting hibiscus, but it was just a pure white tea with pomegranate flavoring. It tastes like berries and cream. Delicious!

I am so surprised! For some reason, I thought it would have hibiscus and bleed red. There was no hint of that at all. It was a purely white tea with some flavorings! Delicious! Nice and light with the hint of fruitiness from the pomegranate.

drank White Lavender by Tea of Life
94 tasting notes

A couple years ago I got this tea as a gift, I had a few cups then lost the tin and recently rediscovered it. The tea is still good, wrapped in its foil. The lavender does not taste as strongly as it might have fresh but it is still a good tea.

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

Perfect mint flavour. I actually love steeping a bag of this tea into hot chocolate for a great mix!
