drank Rooibos de Provence by DAVIDsTEA
906 tasting notes

So I made the Ginseng Oolong for the boy and this one for me. I stopped by my local Davids to restock and try some new flavors today! This one was beckoning to me from the reviews on here and my enjoyment of Jessie’s Tea.

The dry smell is wonderfully berry filled!! Soo many berries! Wet leaves are also very berry like, with a hint of rooibos. The dry smell is more potent smelling though.

As for taste, mm, I get a myriad of things going on here. I get a nice blueberry right at the start, melding into a woody taste that reminds me of curling up by a fireplace in the winter. I like it! I don’t really get much of the floralness in here, it seems muted by the berries. There may be a touch of the lavender and rose at the end, lingering nicely.

Overall, a nice cozy cup of tea. I like the name of it and the berry taste. However, I think I still prefer Jessie’s Tea for my rooibos of choice…for now. :D

Hello all, I’m a newly graduated electrical engineer as of 2013 (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it’s excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte haha)

I enjoy a variety of herbal, white, green, oolong and black teas. I have also tried a few pu’erhs and matcha I am a bit sensitive to caffeine, but I find that in moderation I can still indulge in black teas and matcha.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I recently tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.

95+: Absolute favorite, will try to always have it in stock, and when I don’t I pine over it!
90-94: Awesome teas, will probably purchase again a few times
80-89: Very good tea, may restock at some point
70-79: happy to have tried and will gladly finish, but not restock
60-69: not horrible, but not the best, will finish if I have some though
50-59: not a favorite, probably will have a tough time finishing the bag
-50: yuck. I don’t want to have it ever again.

I am happy to say that my caffeine intolerance seems to be subsiding! This is allowing me to try a wider variety of teas :)
