High altitude taste

Have you heard of the barbegazi? According to Swiss lore, they are a group of furry little men that live high in the Alps. They are known for their long, icy beards and enormous feet, which they use to ski down hills and surf on avalanches. But how do they stay warm up in the frozen mountains all year round? We like to think it’s with a fortifying brew like this almond-scented rooibos, with apple, cinnamon, and ginger. If you see some very big footprints next time you’re out hiking, follow them to the barbegazi’s cave and see if they offer you a cup. Limited edition.

Ingredients: Rooibos, coconut chips and rasps, apple pieces, cinnamon pieces, ginger bits, cardamom, black pepper, rose blossoms, almond flakes, artificial flavouring*.

Allergens: Tree nuts and coconut

Price: $7.75 per 50g

Advent calendar [14/24]

Good news! My frivolous spend-as-much-as-I-need-to-get-points order is in. I have a few more teas to review soon. In other good news, I’ve converted my boyfriend into a black loose leaf tea drinker.

Despite my aversion to drinking non caffeinated tea in the morning, I had to have this one early. It just sounded so good.

It seems like this tea had a lot of different flavours going on. I get a spicy coconut flavour with a sweet aftertaste. I’m not really sure what this tea is doing, but I really like it.

If I didn’t have a 50g pouch of red rooibos sitting in my cupboard at home, this would be a definite choice to buy.

Day 14/24

I was a little disappointed to see a rooibos today (though I knew this was coming eventually), but WOW, this is really good! For me it’s somewhere between a biscotti or a cranberry bliss bar from Starbucks. Prominent almond, cranberry, white chocolate, and vanilla notes wrapped up in a warm cup of delicious. You hardly notice the rooibos base (a plus for me). I’m kind of sad I used up the whole sample (I didn’t want a bunch of rooibos hanging around). It’s not a must have, but it’s a great holiday tea!

This seems to be a well liked rooibos on this website. I can totally see why, too.

A warm cinnamony fruit punch that’s quite a joy to sip. The main three flavours (cinnamon, coconut, apple) blend in such a way that none overpower the other. I’ve found that rooibos teas have an extra smoothness or creaminess to them and that quality is very detectable here. Light, fruity, smooth and not too sweet, this is a definite rooibos favourite.

Tried this tea for the first time today, & it was very sweet & fruity. I’m not one to really drink fruity teas though, so it’s not really for me. I wouldn’t mind drinking it again, but if I had another choice, I probably wouldn’t pick this one. I would recommend this tea to people who enjoy fruity teas!

This tea confuses me. Every time I drink a cup my opinion of it changes.

This time, it’s very nutty, almost sweet – possibly the flavor of marzipan? I can taste the cardamom but I just… don’t understand it. I think that there are too many basic flavors and it’s too complex for me to fully enjoy it.

Flavors: Almond, Cardamon, Marzipan, Nutty

I bought this tea for skiing in Vermont (I know, the only reason I bought it was because we were going skiing) but I would definitely get it again. It had a welcoming, ski chalet taste to it. I usually drank it before we would go out in the mornings and it helped me to conquer my fear of the hill!

Alpine Punch is one of those teas that seems like it would be great, but it doesn’t deliver on its promises. The tea both smells and tastes HEAVILY like candy. My personal opinion is that the flavoring they’re using, in addition to the coconut, creates this extremely rich profile. Perhaps diluted way down this would taste better, but it really didn’t make a pleasant tea for me, warm or cold.

Definitely not a fan of Alpine Punch hot – cold is much, much better. The coconut doesn’t mesh with the punch – at least not for my tastebuds. I’ve heard this is ridiculously popular so I guess I’m the odd one out… doubt I’ll buy again but I’ll enjoy what’s left in the bag.

Thanks to a friend from work I got to try this very tasty nutty tea. I enjoyed it though I think it could use a little more sweetness. meganxpink asked me to see if the batch had an alcohol-y taste to it, but I didn’t taste anything like that

My friend shared an old batch of this tea with me and it was delicious. Very fruity and nutty but I could almost SWEAR that it tasted like it had rum / alcohol in it.. it must be in my head :) I will need ccoppens to try this one later and let me know what he thinks.
