89

Recently, I was at my favorite local tea and herb source: The Secret Garden Organic Herb Shop. I noticed they had some rooibos that I had never before tried, and I realized that I was running low on this great non-caffeinated beverage. Without hesitation, I chose a couple new rooibos (rooiboses?) to try, including this peach-flavored rooibos. I find it delightful that a rooibos may be steeped indefinitely for a more intense flavor, definitely something that is worth trying with this one.
I used just-boiled water and at least five minutes of steep time to produce a small pot of this brew. The smell was juicy and fresh, and the flavor…if you are a fan of the intense flavor of peach rings, this rooibos is for you. It really was that intense and delicious. I highly recommend this tea and would give it an 89/100 on my personal enjoyment scale.

Bio

“I love trading tea and trying new teas. My favourites are oolong (mainly Chinese) and pu’erh.
Will gladly talk all day about tea.”

The above was my bio when I joined five years ago, and I felt it needed to be updated. I still love pu’erh, though I have begun to take preference toward cooked, shou. Oolongs are certainly still a go-to tea for me, but I have expanded my horizons to begin including greens and blacks based upon the weather and how I am feeling.

Still more than glad to talk about tea – anytime, anywhere, anyplace.
Additionally, if fountain pens, books, music, or computers are on the discussion list…

My ratings, this “personal enjoyment scale” about which I talk, are just that – based on how much I enjoyed the tea. I might have enjoyed it immensely, yet do not keep it stocked for various reasons. On the flip side, I have a few teas that are “good” but not “great,” which I keep stocked for various reasons.
