drank Blueberry Bliss Rooibos by Teavana
274 tasting notes

I had to go to the urgent care clinic today because of stabbing pains in my arm joints, and was tentatively diagnosed with carpal tunnel (I type very very fast for a living so yeah, I can see that). The doc gave me drugs, but I remembered hearing somewhere the rooibos had anti-inflammatory properties. Now, I have not been a rooibos fan but I figured if it helped my arms become less borked, that was a good thing. So I toddled off to Teavana and made the clerk bring out all the rooibos, and I selected four to purchase. This was one of them.

I was pleasantly surprised by this tea. It smelled lovely, but wasn’t very flavorful until I added a spoonful of sugar to my mug. The sugar really brought out the other flavors. I can see myself drinking this.

The lack of caffeine will take harder to get used to. Ugh, crashing right now without my nightly cup of oolong…

I like to combine this with strawberry lemonade (which I’m sure the Teavana folks tried to get you to do), but then you won’t get all the rooibos you’ve been wanting. Blueberry Bliss is also quite good iced (with rock sugar). Also, I find that I can steep this one forever… the more the better!

I remembered after posting my comment that you dislike strawberries! So you wouldn’t want to blend it with strawberry lemonade. :)

Haha. I don’t mind strawberry flavor as much as fresh strawberries. I’m odd, I know!

Bio

I’m a tea-aholic. I’ve always loved tea. It is soothing and warm and comforting. I always had it when we went out to eat as a child so my first association is with rich and delicious food.

As an adult, I’m learning to enjoy tea on its own merits, and bask in its subtleties and varieties. The ritual of making a cup of tea is instantly relaxing.

I prefer oolong and white teas, followed by greens, and then blacks. For the most part I do not like flavored or blended teas, and I never add sugar or cream to tea from the actual tea plant.

I’m slowly learning to appreciate rooibos blends, which I drink for its anti-inflammatory properties.
