Backlogged from last-night.

I’ve had this for a couple months now and I kept putting off on trying it because the red rooibos smell was very strong and I prefer a little more flavor added to my rooibos. So, last night upon sniffing my non-caffeinated “teas” I came across this. It didn’t smell quite as strong as usual. So I figured why not finally try it.

The red rooibos is very strong in scent and taste in this one. The berries (actual dried berries in there) didn’t cover up the rooibos, but helped accentuate it. It complimented the rooibos and the lavender very well. The lavender isn’t strong at all, it’s just a hint, the rooibos and the berries take center stage with this one.

This isn’t a rooibos I crave, but it’s good for once in a while.

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.
