267 Tasting Notes

48

I bought this one out of sheer curiousity (a cookie flavored tea? and caffeine free?) and because I had a big coupon. I was dubious, to tell the truth. After finishing half of the box, I’ll admit that it’s not a bad tea, and definitely a good dessert substitute. It’s not as sweet as I expected, although the teabags do smell just like a sugar cookie. I let it steep for 5 minutes, and don’t add anything to it. SCSR is not like any other tea I’ve ever tried, and oddly not as disgusting as ‘warm liquid cookie’ sounds to me. It’s just a bit sweet and a bit citrusy. If you’ve ever enjoyed sugar in your tea, it’s actually worth a try.

drank Rooibos Wedding Chai by Chado

I really like this chai. It’s great with a little vanilla almond milk and some honey. It’s also great on its own- the combination of whole cardamom pods, vanilla, and rooibos creates a sort of spicey-sweetness that I adore in a good cup of chai. Definitely recommended.

drank Skin DeTox by Yogi Tea

I’m going to update this when I can give a better sense of how it works on my skin. In the meantime, the taste is definitely not my motivation for drinking it- the flavor is very floral, a strong rose scent and taste. The perfumey nature of the rose obscures the other notes for me.

Sorry about the taste. Hope it helps the skin! :)

This actually sounds good- but the name sounds like a lot of hype.

It may very well be hype- folks on the yogiteas website seem to have reported good results. I’ll be keeping an eye on my skin. Most of Yogi Teas’ teas actually do produce results, so I’m at least hopeful.

Woo hoo! Houstonians representing!

drank Rooibos Bourbon by Chado
267 tasting notes

I really like the notes in this. The flavoring is mild, very lightly sweet- maybe not what you’d expect from bourbon, but more of a ‘bourbon vanilla.’ I do wish Chado teas’ rooibos flavors were a bit more strongly flavored, but I don’t dislike any of them, and this might be the best of my last big order. The sweetness definitely takes a back seat to the natural flavor of rooibos. I am oddly finding that the more I drink this, the less impressed I am with it.

Everytime I get a rooibos, I can only taste rooibos and not the flavors. But, i keep trying anyway. One day I’ll find a rooibos I like.

drank Rooibos Chocolate Rum by Chado
267 tasting notes

Mild, with a slight hint of rum to it. The chocolate doesn’t come through particularly, and there aren’t very many chocolate chips. (This is okay because oddly enough, they didn’t melt on their own, and when stirred, didn’t seem to add much through a filter.)

drank Wild Sweet Orange by Tazo

This is my father-in-law’s tea. It tastes a bit like warm orange drink, but I actually like it. It’s a bit tart and sweet at the same time. I typically dislike fruit teas.
