Another one from the quiet life!!!
This tea contains everything but the kitchen sink, yet it doesn’t taste like much more than cinnamon and rooibos! How is that possible!? It was quite enjoyable with a touch of honey, but I just don’t understand where the flavor of the apple pieces, peach pieces, pear pieces, rose buds, mallow flower blossoms, rhubarb bits, red currants, almond slices, and vanilla went to! I used an extra teaspoon and a half of tisane – I was forewarned – but it just made it extra cinnamony. I will certainly enjoy the rest of my sample, but it’s not different enough from plain rooibos where I would seek it out.
I mixed this (Rooibos Sweet Amore) with my morning mate both by Teavana. My morning mate is a staple around my house and for the past couple days I seem to be suffering with allergies (along with the rest of my household) so I thought to myself I better try to add some Rooibos into my tea so that I can see if I get any signs of allergy relief as rooibos is said to help fight allergies.
It’s actually not a bad combination of flavors but to be honest it’s not extraordinary either oh well (shrugs) at least I’ll get my rooibos in. It tastes like rooibos mixed with my morning mate. Sorry for the lack of taste description I’m stuffy and grouchy this a.m..
Where’s the flavor! While the aroma of this tea smells pretty awesome I was sorely disappointed in the lack of flavor. The tension between the vanilla and cinnamon (which always has the potentinal to ruin a good rooibos) was perfect but just needed to be turned up a notch. Any ideas on how to add to the flavor? More tea? What’s your steep time on this?
After smelling lots of teas, this teas aroma stood out. After bringing it home I found that it was probably because the scent is fairly pervasive and almost medicine-like. The tea was pretty good, but not my favorite. I brewed this loose-leaf tea in very hot water for a couple minutes and mixed with a small amount of sugar. This tea would not go particularly well with milk
This tea is definitely better mixed with others but it’s still pretty good by itself. I am pretty miffed though that the Teavana associate who last sold this to me lied about it being discontinued in order to get me to purchase much more of this tea than I normally would have.
I do agree with other members the rooibos flavor does overwhelm some of the other ingredients. The flavors of peach, pear, and apples are bit muddled.
