This is a June tea of the month on the classic plan. I’ve now had several green rooibos blends from Teavana, all of which were successful in not tasting of rooibos. This one should be interesting. I noticed when I first opened it up that it appears to be a hybrid of a rooibos and a fruit blend. It has the ginormous chunky fruit pieces I’ve seen in Teavana fruit blends before (but not in rooibos) mixed in with the green, needly rooibos.

Smells fairly one-notedly of strong lime prior to steeping. Afterwards, there’s a mellower lime fragrance and a faint apple note. It’s a very pale, clear yellow.

The flavor is, expectedly, limey. I get what Soccer Mom was saying about the apple, but in my first tasting it isn’t strong at all. I may have lucked out and spooned in mixture that wasn’t heavy on the apple chunks for my first brew. Mostly, I get a fairly mellow lime that isn’t tart, and isn’t really sweet either (though I think that’s the apple’s role, to make the lime not tart). It’s nowhere near as strong as the Numi Desert Lime, which is, frankly, a good thing.

I wouldn’t have picked this to try absent my tea ‘o the month membership, and it’s not the sort of thing I’ll seek out even after tasting it, but I’m glad I got a chance to try it and I’ll be happy enough drinking it on hot summer evenings when it’s too late for caffeine until my spoon goes clink at the bottom of the tin. It’s not at all rooibossy, which is, after all, the main criterion of a decent rooibos if you’re me.

BTW, tough day today. Learned of two deaths within 30 minutes this morning before work, one of someone only 5 years older than I am who was a sort of mentor to me. So I’m in a funk at the moment.

hugs i’m sorry for all the sad news


I’m sorry that you’ve had a really rough day. :(


Thanks. :-) I’m a little worried, as these things tend to come in threes…


sorry for all of the sad news. sending hugs your way!


Hugs and prayers.


Though Limeade is a good one, but Raspberry Riot Lemon Mate Tea and Strawberry Lemonade, Lemon Youkou and Wild Orange Blossom even more amazing. They makes great iced teas….www.teavana.com

Post-Steep Additives: German rock sugar, didn’t help much

Having it hot tasted like a potentially god drink, but a little off. It was floral, I don’t want flowers in my limeade.

Having it hot steeped then iced in the fridge was odd, it tasted warm, the liquid was cold but it tasted warm…

Trying to find some flavored iced teas that my family will like (and agree upon) this is not going to be an easy task!

So I decided to start with a rooibos seems like a good start especially with it being allergy season. Made this according to the Teavana iced tea instructions and poured it over ice. It smells like lime mixed with apples and I want LIME not apples :(! I don’t mind apples but I don’t want apple mixed with my lime.

Next stop AmazonV’s suggestion Raspberry Zinger (good excuse to buy more tea).

Loved this one. Can’t wait to use it as an iced tea when the weather warms up. Nice, sweet lime flavor. Not overpowering, and not too sweet either.

Had this iced with a bit of mint and club soda. WOW. Tastes like a fruity tropical fizz you’d only find in specialty markets stateside. The lime is present, but not overpowering. It’s subtle and warm. Would probably be great hot with honey and lemon.

This tea smells like a sunrise looks. Fruity teas aren’t even my favorite, this one just has all sorts of awesome things going on. I get so engrossed just shaking the tin and wafting the aroma around, haha! Anyway, the citrus makes me energized in the morning, so I guess I will be relying on this next semester before 8:30 chemistry class. :) Brewed this by the directions given, turned out perfect.

We had a high of 50 degree (F) today, so why not make iced tea? I really only enjoy this one iced, so it seemed appropriate that I rustled it out. I prepared it hot and poured 10oz over ice and two teaspoons of sugar.

I steep this one with a slice of lime typically, because otherwise I find that I taste more apple than lime. And really what’s the point of limeade if it tastes like apple juice?

Anyway, this is one of the few rooibos blends I drink where I don’t taste any rooibos. And for me, that’s pretty much a good rooibos tea. It’s limey, but not overly tart. There’s still a hint of apple, but it really takes a back seat and takes the edge off the lime. Yum yum.

Overall this is a happy summer tea. And I’ll be breaking it out more as the weather gets better :)
