I went to a local cafe today with a friend that has a decent selection of Rishi teas and decided I wanted to try something different. They said this one was a real crowd pleaser but I was wary because I had Teavana’s Blueberry Bliss and couldn’t stand it. But I gave it a try and boy am I glad! I didn’t get the chance to smell this rooibos dry but wet and in the cup the smell of blueberries wafted up and it was pleasant, not overpowering and I could still smell the red rooibos through it. When it cooled enough for me to sip it I was even more pleased, the blueberry and rooibos are blended so well together, so perfectly balanced and the blueberry wasn’t tart either. This is one of the best flavored rooibos I have had and I intend on trekking out sometime soon and adding it to my stash.

Bio

I’m an avid tea drinker, it’s what I drink all day and why I’m here. I don’t sweeten my teas except for the occasional iced tea or cold-brewed tea. I typically brew my teas with a brew basket in a 12 oz cup. If I brew another way I will always note it.

Dislikes: black teas, milk flavored oolongs, hibiscus, red rooibos, licorice, dessert teas, mate, guayusa.

Loves: straight teas, especially Chinese green teas, sencha, jasmine, dan congs, mint, coconut.

My ratings are based mostly on the smiley faces. If a tea is of good quality but not to my taste preference I try not to rate it because I think that is unfair.

I drink a lot of the same teas and will not record every time I drink them. I log them the first time I try them and then again if I did something different and/or got different results.

I also try to keep my cupboard updated to what I actually have for those that wish to swap, although some of them are merely samples.
