I’ve been exhausted all day, seems all I do is homework. Still need to get work done, so time for some more black tea samplers ;)

The smell of this is not too appetizing. It smells smoky, but the rooibos smell is strong as well. I’m not sure whether milk and sugar would go well with this because of the rooibos, so I’m trying it first without—not bad, I could definitely drink this on its own. The harshness of black tea subdued by the rooibos flavor, and the smokyness gives a nice kick to it.

Adding some sugar made the tea just sweet enough to really enjoy. I think I’ll try adding milk to my second steep… if it comes out well. So far the samovar black samplers have lasted 2~4 infusions just like the package says. I’m not used to resteeping black teas.

I have been dying to try this one. Does it actually have rooibos in it? I thought it was just a smoky black tea.

it definitely has actual rooibos leaves in it. i was surprised because i wasn’t expecting it when i poured it into my infuser and tiny rooibos leaves came out. It was a nice combo :)

Bio

Daily tea drinker.

Whether it’s hot or cold outside, there is a cup of tea in my hands. I love all teas, but white and oolong are my favorites. I tend to find one tea and drink it every day until I run out (or get sick of it).

There’s not much variety in what I drink, so tasting notes are few and far inbetween. I try to log every tea I drink at least once… and if I spend to much time perusing the many teas all you lovely people drink I would surely go broke trying to drink them all.
