1828 tasting notes

My samples from *Nina’s Tea" arrived today! If you missed it on Facebook, Laurent invited those who are pretty active on Steepster to request more samples as there are a number of teas which have never been reviewed. I received five two teaspoon samples today.

I chose this one to be my first from this batch because I wanted something caffeine free this evening. I have not been a huge fan of rooibos but I don’t despise it, either. I had one or two that were truly awful and some that were rather nice.

I tried this hot and with no additions first. I found it to have a very clean flavor, with the rooibos being a nicer cherry taste than some that I have had. The blood orange flavor is very nice and I would say the two flavors are evenly matched here – neither one drowns out the other. It really didnt need any sugar for me. It was sweet enough naturally.

I wanted to experiment with it a bit, too, so I chilled it and added a little sugar to try it as an iced tisane. This was very nice, and a refreshing change from the many hibiscus laden iced teas.

I took it one step further and put it in my Zoku Slush Maker. NICE! This made a great little slush and the cherry flavor of the rooibos seemed to lean more heavily toward real cherry flavor this way, mixing nicely with the blood orange. I think rooibos fans would really enjoy this, and it is a great summer drink iced!

Thank you, Laurent and Nina’s Teas!

i sent laurent a note back when they posted that and never heard from them :(

ashmanra

Definitely send another! He was in South America for a while and it may have come in while he was away. Did you contact them early this year, or just last week when they reposted it on Facebook?

Sil

just last week. i sent him another note and we’re good. Somehow it was missed, which is ok with me since it’s not like i NEED the tea, just willing to help out :)

ashmanra

Yay! They sent two teaspoons instead of one this time, and I have really liked the two I had so far. Two were duplicates of tea I already own from them, so I gave them to a friend to try.

Sil

awesome! he also said they’re about 2 weeks out from their own website so that makes me even more happy

ashmanra

Great news! I will let my friend know. She had trouble with amazon. I will definitely wait to pace my order!
