Another green honeybush (maybe there is such a thing), green rooibos mix. And one I particularly like.

It does not taste like any apfelstrudel I ever had, though arguably I never had apfelstrudel in vienna. To me, after that lovely clear pure sweet green rooibos/honeybush flavour, it tastes of hazelnuts. It tastes so strongly of hazelnuts it makes me check my teeth for hazelnut pieces – and this is meant as a compliment. After that there is a apple taste indeed, but apple tea (as opposed to fresh apples), and maybe a hint of cinnamon. It is lovely, to put it plainly.They call it a winter tea, but I think I love it year long.

Preparation

Bio

Inconstant tea drinker – I mostly drink tea when not too hot. I hang around steepster much more frequently in (northern hemisphere) cold season.

- Teas -

I like all sorts of tea, flavoured and unflavoured, though I am picky. I am always willing to try anything new. I am now particularly interested in single origins.

I am one of those people who actually loves Lapsang Souchong. I am not crazy about Earl Grey, in general. I don´t quite get Darjeeling teas, but I am trying to make sure …

I like rooibos, though not all bases. I loathe hibiscus. I do not like fennel/liquorice/anise in blends or teas with chicory. I am picky about what I consider true cinnamon.

As you can probably tell from my cupboard, the brands I find more interesting right now are Mariage Fréres,Thé-o-Dor and Yumchaa.
