drank Blueberry Rooibos by Rishi Tea

Ooh, this is gooood. This truly does smell like blueberry muffins, as most of the other reviewers have stated. The taste is pretty great, too; I can taste a bit more of the rooibos than I’d like, but it blends well with the natural sweetness and tartness of the blueberry. I love that they use real baby blueberries in this tea!

Yummy. Can definitely taste the sweet matcha, though not terribly specifically, but more as a muted sweetness that makes the popcorn taste not so strong. Interested in trying this in a teapot, not a bag like I had to use for work.

A swap tea from jennlea – thanks!

I guess I’m losing my mind. I can’t taste any real floral or honey notes here. This tea is just screaming Darjeeling to me. It has a much lighter muscat flavor, but it’s there, and it’s drying out my tongue. Blergh.

EDIT: Maybe I spoke too soon; I’m getting a strong honey aftertaste the more I drink.

Bethany

The end of my sample. Sadness. This is the perfect evening tea for me. Think I’m gonna get a full size.

Working late and I’m fading fast. There’s some crappy Bigelow bagged teas in the staff lounge, but nothing else. As the boy said, luckily past Beth plans better than future Beth, because I found a bag of this in my desk drawer! I need to start keeping an emergency stash of black tea for occassions like these.

This is nice, strong, and hearty.

Tasting a bit soapy today.. maybe I steeped too long? I just need hot hearty tea because my office is FREEZING. It’s in the teens outside but apparently our heat has not been turned up accordingly.

In a rush this morning (though I highly advocate sleeping in every so often), so I went with Yunnan Noir to start my morning once more. Sample’s almost gone.

Taking this down a bit – I really don’t taste any orchid and the peachiness is tougher to find this time, but the honey is definitely there.

Cofftea

I don’t get any orchid either, but the peach always slaps me in the face.
