Tea #5 from the Here’s Hoping TTB

It’s really funny how much tastes can change in a few short months. Not long ago you had to practically force me to drink rooibos, i disliked it that much. Now I end most days with a huge mug of it and I’ve really come to enjoy it. This tea would have likely appealed to me even during my ‘I hate rooibos’ phase since I can hardly taste the rooibos when it is steeped for a short time.

While I do like this tea I am disappointed that I can’t taste the apricot. What I do taste is a somewhat generic strawberry flavor and something else which gives it a sweetness. I do wish Lupicia went into more detail when listing the ingredients, I’m not sure if there is really honey in here, or just a honey flavor. The website only says this is a rooibos tea scented with honey and sweet berries, so not descriptive at all.

This tea will not be continuing on.

Bio

I am always interested in swapping so if you see anything in my cupboard that you want to try just send me a message. Please keep in mind that I order most of my teas in sample sizes and may not have a lot to swap. I’m also trying to keep my swaps limited to one a month so I don’t break the bank.

My favorite tea companies to order from are American Tea Room, Butiki, Della Terra, Rishi, TeaVivre, and Verdant, however I am constantly lured away from my favorites by a good sale.

Ingredients I love in tea
rose, peach, oolong, osmanthus, vanilla, marshmallow root and peppermint

Ingredients I dislike in tea:
spearmint, chocolate, orange, hibiscus, sage and for the most part lemon.

Ingredients I’m on the fence about:
Pu-erh

I am a firm believer that sage only belongs in my thanksgiving stuffing/dressing and absolutely not in my tea.

Allergies
Cinnamon, Chocolate, Burdock Root, and Goji Berries

Rating Guidelines:

100 – 90: Pantry essential and some of my all time favorites that I can’t live without.

89 – 80: You’ll have a pretty good chance of finding this is my pantry on a regular basis, but it isn’t the end of the world if I run out.

79 – 70: I might consider restocking this at some point if the price was right.

69 – 40: Not undrinkable, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy it again.

39 – 20: What in the world were they thinking? Probably still finished this just because I hate to waste anything.

19 – 0: Wow, that’s so terrible chances are pretty good I dumped it out and gave away the rest.

My current top five favorite teas:

China Black – Rishi Tea
Earl Grey Cream – Zen Tea
Lemoncello – American Tea Room
Nonpareil Anxi Qing Xiang TieGuanYin Oolong – TeaVivre
White Tea Rose Mélange – Rishi Tea
