224 Tasting Notes

ok so again a new tea from something that isn’t like anything i ever tasted before.
its the second time i’m drinking it. didn’t really like it first time. its pure rooibos content. just that. no caffeine either. i bought it in a pharmacy as a medical tea meant to strengthen the immune system.

taste – i put in more sugar this time (one teaspoon). makes it way better. reminds me a bit of that hibiscus taste that i can find in rose bud tea my mum always drinks. i used to like that tea. then they decided to mix it with hibiscus and it became less tasty. tho back then a sweetened fruit tea was the only kind id consider drinking. i’m liking new stuff these days. its an decent tea. quite drinkable. pretty basic with aromas. i like the other ones better tho. i got a feeling that a mix with citrus fruit or something could make rooibos tea much better. maybe vanilla. its asking for something else to make it great. but even like this – its healthy, it tastes decent and its very refreshing. still good cold.

color – that i love. deep clear orangy. really looks good.

smell – weird and stronger than all the other ones i had so far. not bad.

ill leave it with a humble vote. because i’m sure there are way better rooibos teas out there. just gotta discover it…

i discovered yesterday that i can make at least 2 infusions with the teabag :) for some reason second infusion seems always way more peppery. its still quite tasty tho, just less of those aromas and more of that ginger thing…

I’ve found that with other teabags too, it seems like only certain ingredients retain enough flavor for a second cup.

yeah in this case less jasmine more ginger. wonder if that changes with loose leaf teas. mrobably not of those with mixed ingreedients…

OK, so this is my second log and my third try of drinking this tea. Its the first time i steeped it for 2-3 minutes as it says on the box. Well first time i didn’t forget about the tea bag ;)
Smell – at first even the teabag itself smelled bit nasty to me. Now the smell suits me way better. I guess I’m associating it with the taste. It ain’t about the smell tho.
Color – its nice – like deep yellow (yellow with a pinch of orange) and clear.
Taste – mmm way milder than the first 2 tries. Makes sense… Its way better too. I mean i liked it before too, more with every try but this shorter steep makes me feel the aromas way better. I put just a bit of sugar in it so its soothingly sweet at first. Somehow calming. Then the herb aroma fills my mouth and nose. Beautifull. Then i get the pinch of peppery feeling somewhere in the back of my mouth, mostly on the mouth wall and slightly on my tongue. Im guessing thats from ginger. The aromas stick with me for a while.
Actually when i think of it I’m really loving this tea – its very relaxing with a pinch of something more to it. And very herbal – very tea like ;) Good rating again. I’ll come back to it when i know more about other teas and try different brands. So far it makes me wanna continue drinking tea.

Its the first unordinary tea I ever bought out of curiosity. Ginseng sounded quite exotic.
I love to drink it in the evening. Its fruity taste takes care of my thirst very fast and keeps it that way for a longer time. I like it even cold. Just a little bit of sugar or homemade honey makes it better than most juices.
The taste of ginseng and the aroma and feeling that sticks in my mouth was very strange to me at first (never bad). After like 10 teabags I’m starting to love it. Smells nice too.
Its getting a good score from me (a bigtime tea amateur).
Btw love the package and the fact that each teabag is sealed so it doesn’t wind out.

born with a bit of a restless, curious and exploring spirit ;) love to travel and i do it a lot lately. enjoy good food and drinks. love trying out new stuff. just about to start exploring the world of teas and i’m really enthusiastic about it ;)

EDIT 4 months later:
still a n00b here but starting to get it ;) i try to buy loose tea but i got a lot of teabags too cuz it’s easier to find here. from not liking black tea ended up love it. green can be quite good too but waiting for more real ones to try. whites are sometimes awesome, sometimes not, rooibos and fruity blends are a good replacement for juices… and so on… still excited about every new tea… loving it more every day :D

since my favorite hobby is photography i take photos whenever something is interesting. including my tea making process…
