I have a few sample pouches of rooibos from TeaFrog that I still haven’t tried yet, mostly because I don’t get around to making a pot of tea at home as much as I’d like. I chose this one because of the orange and rose and other florals in the mix. When I first got them, all the pouches kind of smelled like all the other ones, and separation hasn’t helped them much, but I haven’t experienced much cross contamination in the other teas from the box. I say this because this one doesn’t taste much like I expected.

Brewed up, I do of course taste the nutty rooibose base, and a creamy, vanilla flavor. Maybe a hint of orange? I also get a somewhat, minty, musty aroma that sometimes gets into the flavor. No florals at all. It’s not a great match up. Maybe I got a not-great batch, but I don’t see myself going for this one very often.

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.
