I’ve been sadly slowing down with reviews lately on account of drinking less tea and also I’ve been drinking boring old peppermint tea bags because my gut issues have been acting up at an insane level.

Ordered this with a few other rooibos from Della Terra as I’m looking for more caffeine free options and so far I’ve been impressed with this company’s rooibos offerings.

I drank some last night, and I think I’m with Sil in that I need something else to help hide the rooibos taste, as the vanilla alone isn’t sufficient given that I don’t really like rooibos. Their Blueberry Creme and all the lemon/lime chiffon/cream tart teas blow my mind, but this one is too much of the hay like medicinal taste. I will probably still drink it but maybe I will add some maple syrup or something, haha.

I am wondering if I should have tried the caramel rooibos instead?

dunno if you’ve tried it already but if not: American Tea Room’s Choco-late is a rooibos-based chocolate tea that tastes a helluva lot like Swiss Miss hot cocoa. In case you need more ideas of rooibos-based stuff that isn’t icky.

Hello!

I love tea. I love my baby daughter, my husband, my dog Wally, Netflix, shopping, and tea. Some other stuff too, but these are the most important!

Some favourites -

Butiki teas in general, I love how the flavours are subtle and not fake tasting and don’t overwhelm the tea base. Trust that I will be dramatically mourning the loss of this company!

Harney and Sons, Teavivre, Whispering Pines and Mariage Freres are some more tea companies I appreciate. Along with Davidstea as it was the ‘gateway drug’ to my tea addiction. Though I’m mostly over it now, I’ve definitely moved on from the artificially flavoured teas and am trying more quality straight teas!

My ultimate goal is to try as many French teas as possible – and to finally find a source in Canada for Mariage Freres so I can buy Wedding Imperial, and Black Orchid for sure.

I would like to try any Taiwanese Assams that exist in the world!

Also continuously on the hunt for Fauchon – La Naissance.

When I rate, it goes like this:

85 -100 = WIN! awesome, I love this and keep it on hand
70 – 85 = pretty darn good but I don’t NEED to own it
55 – 70 = not necessarily terrible but not a tea for me!
30 – 55 = missed the mark as far as I am concerned. Wouldn’t drink it willingly.
0 – 30 = I likely won’t rate this low very often, so if you see it, consider the tea a great big FAIL and probably disgusting.
