drank The Black Cat by Della Terra Teas
1195 tasting notes

I was a little apprehensive about this one, because it sounds a lot like Swampwater. So I just got it in a try me pack with a couple other things I wanted to try before buying an ounce maybe.

This seemed like the perfect time to try it! Also, although he is a white cat, I finally saw the friendly cat I named Cat (he responds to it, I can’t not call him Cat) today and he required a lot of pets and scratches. He’ll wander off for a second then come back over to me, and just headbutt my leg before he rubs up against it. He also had to rub his head on my purse. He once tried it to my keys also, but his favorite remains my shoes.

This does taste a lot like Swampwater…but it’s actually drinkable, very drinkable at that. It’s a thinner tea, so the color isn’t as bold, but I think that makes it actually taste good and not like oatmeal or anything weird. Perhaps though it is just the magic listed in the ingredients.

It’s just a nice, mango-pineapple rooibos. I’m surprised how much I like it given it looks to be a red rooibos blend. But definitely, if the fruit flavors of Swampwater are what drove you to try it, and it was disappointing, this one is worth trying.
