drank Rainbow Rooibos by Tealish
1350 tasting notes

Derp! As long as I’ve been drinking tea, I’ve taken it with sugar. All tea, no exceptions. That’s just how I do it. However last night, while I was making tea for myself, my wife, and loading the dishwasher, I somehow managed to forget the sugar. I’m almost to 700 tea reviews on this site and I’ve never forgotten. Derp.

That being said, it wasn’t bad! I did take a sip and wonder where the flavor had gone, and I can totally see now how people who are used to sugary drinks and taste unsweetened tea and think it tastes like lightly flavored water. I’m sure if you’re used to unsweetened tea, it’s amazing. I just needed a touch of sugar in this to be happy. But it was very good, and even though I messed it up, I enjoyed it. I will rate it next time I make it my usual way XD

Ah, tea. My love for you is ever changing. At my last update, I was all about the rooibos and now I hardly drink it. I only occasionally had an oolong and now I have one just about every day. I’ve learned the art of resteeping and coldbrewing and kombucha. I have a lovely little tea pet named…well, I haven’t decided on a name for him yet. I also have four live pets, a tabby cat named Rosabella Francis (Bella for short), a ginger cat named Orange Julius Pekoe (Pekoe), a white and grey cat named Earl Jean Grey (Earlie), and a red foot tortoise named Da Hong Pao (Pao). So if you see me referring to my girls, I don’t have kids, just animals.

As for tea, I love oolongs, herbals, and black tea. Since I am no longer working, I no longer feel the constant need for a mate energy boost, though I do still reach for it from time to time. I also drink less matcha, though I do throw a spoonful or two in when I’m making smoothies. Most of my tea I drink coldbrewed, and since I discovered coldbrewed rooibos was giving me headaches, I’m drinking less and less of it. Straight pu-erh is not a thing I enjoy, but there are a few flavored blends I like. Greens are still too finicky for me to bother with hot, but they make great cold brews.

I am by no means a tea purist. I greatly enjoy flavored teas and I put sugar in all of my teas. It’s just how I do.

I think I’m going to name my tea pet Mr. Turtle. Even though he’s a tortoise.
