2605 Tasting Notes
GCTTB Rd 3:
You know you gotta be just a little bit tired when you search for a tea by the phrase “Ruby Red Christina” because that’s who put it in the box so obviously steepster must know which tea I mean. Anyways, thank you Christina for the opportunity to try this tea. It says it is an apple/currant rooibos but I am just getting currant, though it is a bit smoother/less medicinal than other currant teas I have had so maybe that is how the apple plays into it? Ultimately though, this tea isn’t something I would reach for given I am not a currant lover so it will continue to travel with the box. It was fun to try though :)
Great Canadian Traveling Teabox Round 3:
This was my first pick out of the teabox because by the time I got home and opened it up and sorted everything, it was already pretty late. This, being both caffeine free and in a tea bag, seemed like the simplest of options. Unfortunately, it really wasn’t the best way to start off as this tea isn’t great. The first sip was slightly sweet but the subsequent sips all devolved into a competition between medicinal rooibos and a cloying artificial sweetener/stevia type taste. Thank you Janelle for the chance to try this tea but it most definitely was not for me.
Thank you for sharing Cavocorax!! This tea is nice and fruity but there is a hint of something metallic in the cup that I am not loving. Moreover, I think I underleafed this which could be why I am experiencing a strange mix of flavors. Thankfully I have more leaf in the generous sample so I can try again.
