drank Raspberry Vanilla by Zen Tea
988 tasting notes

Oops, I forgot to log this last week! This is a decent tasting rooibos, the first time I steeped it I did for 4 or 5 minutes and got more rooibos flavor, so this time I tried 6 minutes and it is much tastier! The raspberry is the predominant flavor, and a pretty good raspberry at that, I don’t get very much vanilla, might have to try mixing this with some of my vanilla cream by DT and see if that adds a bit more. Mmm, as I keep drinking this I am liking it a lot more than the first time I had it. I maybe should have gotten more than 1 oz of this, since it was only 80 cents for an ounce! But I have quite a few other rooibos’ that I need to drink as well. But this is tasty, and I’m happy I got a bit of it at least :) hopefully it is not discontinued in case I want more in the future!

Hello all, I am an electrical engineer (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 was excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte, or decent decaf haha)

I enjoy a variety of teas – current favorites being ripe and raw pu’erhs, chinese black teas and herbal/green rooibos blends. I also enjoy white, green, and oolong teas, although I tend to drink them more in the warmer months. I have also tried matcha and guayusa, but I don’t drink them too often as I am a bit sensitive to caffeine. As a result I don’t drink black teas as often as I used to, but in moderation I can still enjoy a wide variety of teas.

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 have tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.
