drank Lime Sage Rooibos by Cornelia Bean
2369 tasting notes

Recently OMGsrsly and I split a Cornelia Bean order. This tea is one of her purchases as I had no interest in a lime sage tea. However, when the package arrived and I smelled this, it smelled soooo amazing that I asked if I could try a bit. I am glad I did because this is a good tea!

It has a nice lime flavor that is not too citrusy because it is mellowed by a hint of sage and a touch of the rooibos base. I am enjoying this cup however I don’t think it will be a tea I reach for often and thus I am happy with just a taste. Thank you OMGsrsly for letting me indulge my curiosity!

I think it’s great to try teas one might not ordinarily try. This one sounds really interesting.

I’m so excited about the weird herb-y teas I got. :)

The greek Mountain orange feels like a pillow. It entertains me :P

OMGsrsly

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
