drank Rooibos Provence by Tealish
1294 tasting notes

This is an awesome rooibos. Slightly floral with a zing, and a barely noticeable bitter edge (moreso as it cools).
The fruity part plays nicely with the floral, creating a candy like taste. Not quite cotton candy, but definitely something fluffy and soft!
When I run out of rooibos blends to try, this will be on my repurchase list.
and yes, I can hear you all chuckling. AS IF there will ever be a shortage of teas to sample. Ha!

I dropped by tealish last? weekend or maybe it was the weekend before. Sadly I left rather unimpressed with their store. I think what concerned me most was how WARM the store was…and with all that tea sitting there in the warmth. Not only that I’m not as big a fan when i can’t have smaller sizes or when I have to ask them to take down canisters for me (especially when it’s busy). We’ll see though…maybe i’ll have to “borrow” some of your favs from them…

I hear you on that. Usually it is really cold in there so I guess they have furnace issues??
Since I don’t make it out there very often, I only have maybe three of their teas. This one was a free sample they gave me. You’re welcome to have some! :)

Bio

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
