drank Rooibos Vanilla by Tealux
343 tasting notes

I’m a big vanilla fan and I was looking forward to using this as a mix-in with some of my fruit flavored teas. I just can’t get past the smell (although I’m drinking it since I have 100 grams of it!). Even though Tealux indicated this is made with natural vanilla it smells so artificial. The smell actually made me a bit nauseated. It doesn’t taste quite as bad as it smells but it completely overwhelmed the strawberry tea I was mixing with it. Plus, part of the whole tea experience is smelling it as you’re drinking it and it just ruins it for me. I’m going to try a couple more times. Maybe I’ll use a lot less going forward but for me so far this is a big nay.

I recently discovered loose leaf tea and am already addicted (much to my husband’s dismay)! I prefer fruity teas iced and savory teas hot. Looking forward to drinking and chatting.

Some likes/dislikes I’ve been noticing:

Fruity White Teas
lighters Blacks
Most Oolongs (especially greener varieties)
dessert teas
tisanes iced that don’t require added sweetener

Spicy flavors unless in chai
astringent black teas
heavy ginger teas
teas with licorice (as primary ingredients – somehow I like some where the licorice is in the back drop)
heavily oxidized oolongs

For my own reference, I’m only placing “full size” teas in my cupboard.
