1848 tasting notes

Sipdown, 184 (hmmm I seem to have lost a tea in there somewhere. Don’t remember destashing one.)

I brought this home from Argentina a while ago, but finally I’ve been drinking all my herbal teas at night, so I am finally going through them. This is a rooibos, and I’ve been liking rooibos less and less since I’ve been drinking more of it. It has that medicinal, menthol smell. Fortunately it doesn’t really taste like it. It also doesn’t taste much like hazelnuts or dulce de leche. Maybe a bit like apples, but I can’t tell if maybe it’s just my weird juicy taste I’ve been having in my mouth. On well.

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: I’m in LOVE with these teas.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Tasty teas that I enjoy, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
