From Camellia Sinensis

Wish I had more information about this tea, as it’s a creamy, fruity, deep rooibos that I really enjoy. Bag says it’s from South Africa, should be steeped at 95 degrees Celcius for 3-4 minutes.

Was gifted to me last year in a RedditGifts exchange, with the request that I get tea local-to-them. This isn’t listed on their website, so I have to assume it’s discontinued.

Had some of this last night and continuing with it this morning. Thanks MissB for the sample.
There isn’t much info about the tea, but it reminds me of Bluebird’s Raspberry Beret. For me there is quite a bit of rooibos coming though. It’s really fruity, and I’m thinking creamy raspberry. I think it’s nicely balanced, a little sweet a little tart. It’s nice. Thanks MissB.

Wow, I seem to be missing a lot of feeds these past few days. Sorry about that!

I struggled to find anything about this tea when I got it. CS has taken it off their site, so I ended up calling them. It’s discontinued, and that’s pretty much all they told me. I even asked the person who gave it to me as a gift what the deal was, and have yet to hear back. So… I had pretty much the same experience. It’s pleasant, a bit rooibos-y, and nice to use as a blend.

Queued post, written May 7th 2014

I got this one from MissB, who doesn’t seem to know very much about it, judging from the information on the tea page.

It’s a rooibos blend and it has been flavoured with… something. I think it seems very similar to the rooibos blend I have from Nothing But Tea which has vanilla and raspberry, so this is my first instinct. It definitely smells and tastes like some sort of berry, perhaps several kinds of berry. I can’t really pinpoint any that I think it’s more like, so I’m thinking perhaps it’s some kind of forest fruit or four red fruits blend on a rooibos base. These are not usually mixed with anything else so far as I know, though, and I’m pretty certain there’s something in here that adds sweetness.

Which leads me back to vanilla and raspberry.

Curious, I then went and made up a small cup of the vanilla raspberry blend from NBT that I mentioned earlier so that I could compare it directly. They are indeed extremly similar, the NBT blend being a little more berry-tart and this one more evenly blended.

Having thus determined the mystery of this blend, I can move on to inform you that I find it a very pleasant blend. Of course, it’s already a blend that I like on a rooibos base (who are we fooling, I’d probably like it on almost any base), so perhaps I’m a little biased. I’ve been drinking up the NBT blend for my before bed beverages as it’s getting very old. I expect I’ll be using this blend in the same way. This is not at all a bad thing. :)
