Oooooh, this tea. This tea, this tea, this tea. I am halfway through my cup and still not entirely sure how I feel about this tea. When I opened the package from Kristin (thank you!) this afternoon, I immediately opened this one and smelled it. And then again…and again. I love the way this tea smells.

I made myself wait until this evening so I could try the caffeinated ones earlier and it is a nice cup to round out my day with. It’s tart, but not too tart, sweet, but not too sweet, and just…juicy. That’s the word I’m searching for. Juicy.

I think I like it, there’s just a hint of something that makes it not 100%

I think it’s the rooibos woodsy flavor that makes it not quite 100 for me… and that it can get medicinal if brewed for long.

My tastes in tea have changed, so I should update this as well. I find myself leaning more towards rooibos and herbals, if only for their great ability to chill in my travel mug for hours and not get weird on me. When I have time to properly brew a cuppa, I lean towards white teas (which I only steep for 30 seconds) and black teas (which only get 2-3 minutes from me). I cannot stand green teas, they’re too fiddly for my tastes. Oolongs are great, but a bit fiddly as well. However, I love watching oolongs open up in my looseleaf brewer. I’m slowly discovering mates and falling for them…there are many I look forward to trying!

So…yeah. That’s me and my tea!
