Sipdown, 198. Except not really, because there are still teas from my swap with yssah that I haven’t added to my cupboard, but I am living in denial la la la la. This one also comes with from my swap with yssah, thanks!

I requested a sample of this one because I thought rose might help me enjoy rooibos more. Except I apparently didn’t look a the tea description. I tasted in and was like mint whaaaat? Yeah, there was some caramel, but mostly minty rooibos, and no rose. Then while logging this tea I noticed in the description it says mint and caramel flavor. Oh. Well. Still, if the name is Caramel Rose, I expect caramel and rose. This should really be called Caramel Mint.

IF this was Caramel Mint, it would be pretty decent. I don’t love minty teas, but it works fairly well with the rooibos overall. If you are looking for rose, look elsewhere.

This is such a weird blend (but one of the few rooibos that I enjoy)! It reminds me strongly of something from my childhood but I can’t put my finger on what…

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: Mind-blowingly good, just right for my palate, and teas that just take me to a happy place.
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: Pretty tasty teas that I enjoy well enough, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but only if there were no preferrable options.
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.
Unrated: Usually I feel unqualified to rate these teas because they are types of teas that I tend to not like in general. Sometimes user error or tea brewed under poor conditions.
