Another sample from Sil! Thanks!
So I just decided to kind of half organize some of my teas, and ended up pretty much panicking because I have way, way, WAY too much, and I will never ever finish it all, and I have so much that I really need to put on a swap list, but I don’t have time for swapping right now because I’m horribly slow with even the tiniest, itty bittiest of swaps. My very outdated, partially updated list of teas, which has virtually no swap samples on it, is at about 300 teas. It’s also missing my last couple Butiki orders. And everything I have from Caraway, Kally, Upton, Simpson & Vail, Lupicia. Plus multiple Verdant orders. Any recent DavidsTeas. So that would undoubtedly bring it up to at least 400. And then, the swap samples. Which must total at least couple hundred in themselves. O.o What have I done…. :’(
Uhhhh so this tea, which I brewed up hours ago. Smelled crazily like honey as soon as the water hit the leaves; I nearly started drooling into the other cups I was pouring water into! Unfortunately, for me, the flavour just isn’t quite there. It has that sweetness that caramel creme rooibos’ often have (so, caramel/vanilla flavouring), and I’m kind of getting berry flavour, along with honey. But, it’s not really all that great. I’m also getting the scratchy feeling in my throat like I seem to do with many red rooibos blends (but not honeybush).
Overall, another tea I’m glad to have tried, but equally glad that I have a very, very small amount of…. :/
ETA: Re-steep, not so bad! Still lots of honey flavour :D
