Last night I lost all track of time! I sat down for my nightly tea at 10:30pm! I didn’t want to be up all night so I chose this. Luckily I genuinely like rooibos – maybe because I also love coffee and my husband’s cigars (I think it has a faint tobacco like quality) and because of the story I’m about to tell…

I’m reminded of another night that I wanted my nightly tea very late at night – we were in California in June, staying at Deetjens in Big Sur. We came back to our cabin tired from a day of adventure, but in the mood for something sweet and our nightly tea, but it was also past 10pm, and the restaurant part of the inn was winding down for the evening.

Here is a picture to help you imagine:

(third picture down, the bar room, first table – that is exactly where we were sitting!)

The hostess remembered us from another night we were there for dinner – my husband’s stomach was upset and they fixed him soup and we didn’t have dessert because of it – so she told us she was glad we were now ready for dessert and brought us pot de creme and a nice sized teapot of rooibos. How could you not like rooibos after that? :) Every time I have it the taste brings me back to that night. I keep on saying that I am going to seek out flavored rooibos and try a variety of additions, but I never do. I now realize this is why :)

Yay for tea that brings back memories. Those teas are the best =]

That is awesome. I heart Big Sur.

What a neat memory!

Lovely looking Inn. It figures that it’s not on my coast. Thanks for sharing your rooibos memory.

chrine – it’s across the country from me too :) My husband won free airfare in the continental US at his office holiday party last year, so we decided to go to Northern California. We spent 3 days in SF then over a week in Big Sur, and we drove to other points like Monterey and Carmel some of the days. We even drove to Napa one day from Big Sur (and got lost and almost wound up at the border of Nevada but that is another story for another day!).

Had this again last night. I had an appointment with the accountant previously, and a 7:30 am dentist appointment this morning! I probably could have used something much stronger than rooibos, but, since I have an active imagination, it sufficed! I felt warm, comforted, relaxed, and fell asleep (and stayed asleep!) within a half hour of my last, tasty, sip. I really have to look into some more flavors :)

This was good! I was in the mood for some tea, and drinking caffeine at 9:30 pm is pushing it, even for me! I went with this rooibos instead of my usual black. I sweetened it with a little honey and sat and relaxed with it. I feel nice and warm and happy – they say rooibos is calming and I think it’s true :)

One of my favorite teas, bold but not overpowering. Highly recommended for green tea drinkers since it isn’t very strong like other black teas

I decided to try a few teaspoonfuls of this tea because of reading about it on the forum. I was pleasantly surprised that I did not hate it. The mint is a bit too strong for me and leaves a tingle on my lips and tongue., but it also has a very calming effect. All in all I guess this tea wasn’t too bad. I would buy it again every once in a while if im in the mood.

I purchased this tea on a whim while at Wegmans. I kind of regret only buying $0.84 worth! I normally don’t drink pu-erh because it reminds me of drinking dirt, but this one was fairly nice. I taste the orange when it hits my tongue, but it’s the ginger that’s the predominant flavor in this tea. It goes down spicy and warms the throat. It’s good for the morning but I also found it excellent after a large meal or if I was feeling under the weather.

Wegman’s RULES! :P

I can spend hours there! I read that they use loose leaf teas from Ito EN, Rishi, and Republic of Tea.

A fine if relatively unremarkable green tea, suitable for the daily cup at work or in the evening. Good value for the price.

steeped 10 mins and cooled a bit. 2nd infusion. Everything seemed to even out quite nicely…I was a little surprised, actually. Nice!

a little over 1.5 T at 4 mins. steeped much darker and much more bold taste than my first attempt but now I am out of it. Will do more infusions until I can no longer. I think anything past 4 mins the first time around would be bitter…just a theory. :P

Backlogging from the weekend…It was a mellow Black Tea with a nice scent and taste of Mango. Bought it bulk just to try. Nice to try but not something I would buy in large quantities.

Backlogging…not bad but mostly mint and little chai…done with my 2-cups worth via bulk purchase

Mint and chai to me seems like it would be a weird combo.

Okay..not sure how or why…but I must have done something right with this one today! It’s much better than my previous attempt…therefore I will change the rating…

drank Blueberry Blend by Wegmans

I’m really not sure about this one. It’s Blueberry Black Flavored Tea and it smells great but it’s blueberry flavored and not actual blueberry or natural blueberry…it seems to be a bit bitter which interrupts the potential blueberry goodness. It’s not awful but I don’t think I would buy it again and I am glad I did the bulk and only enough for 2 cups.

This smells like a Chocolate Coconut Cookie. This also smells VERY strong. When I tasted it at first I thought it was much mellower than the smell led me to believe. It’s quite good. Its not too strong and not too mellow. The Chocolate Chips Prior to steep are HUGE and took about 3 minutes steeping to melt. I’m glad I bought this.

This tea is okay. I think that for the price , it is a pretty good tea. The first steep is fruity, sweet and just a great tea to start the morning off with. I even put it in a latte cup and frothed some milk to put on top ;]

i thought this tea was alright, the second steep didn’t hold too much flavor but the first steep was pleasantly sweet, fruity and buttery on the tongue. Overall, a pretty smooth tea for the price.

Something about this tea reminds me of fried food, I like this tea produced western style, but in a gaiwan or glass brew, it tastes very oily.

I had some of this last night and it tasted like Rooibos but NOT the Strawberry and Cream I remember…I wonder if the shelf life is getting weak…or maybe I just need to steep longer??? Sigh….
