drank Rooibos Tropica by Teavana
262 tasting notes

Steeped 2 teaspoons in 16 oz for 5.5 minutes. Added 1 tsp of rock sugar.

Dried, this tea smells like bubblegum. Steeped, the smell is less intense. The taste is also less intense but I can taste the almost Froot Loops taste underneath the rooibos. Maybe it needs more sugar?

My overall reaction to this tea is: Meh.

Preparation
5 min, 30 sec

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.
