I just received my order today, but I couldn’t resist trying just one more of the samples before bed! At first sip I felt a bit of déjà vu. I recently reviewed Aries by Nina’s Paris, and they taste nearly identical, despite the fact that one is rooibos and berries and the other is rooibos and cherry. Yes, I looked it up – cherry is a fruit!

There’s a surprisingly big difference between the dry smell, which is kind of woodsy, and the taste, which dives straight into cream and something fruity and ambiguous. With rooibos I always seem to taste a slight hint of caramel flavoring, but I think that’s just because I’m a little weird!

Overall, this was enjoyable. Like its sister tea, I’m not going to go out of my way for it, but it is a nice change of pace.

Feel free to browse my cupboard if you’re interested in swapping, but all the mate and pu-erh in our household is my husband’s.

For swapping purposes, please note the apple allergy. Thank you!

I tried to limit my cupboard to teas that were 1oz or larger, but that was a gorgeous failure in terms of swap communication. It’s all going back up.


Okay, I just feel wrong trying to grade things without a rubric – it’s too inconsistent! So, here is the grading breakdown:

0-50: Dump it!
50-60: I might finish the cup
60-70: Possibly finish the pot
70-80: I may keep this on hand
80-90: Cupboard space guaranteed
90-100: Poetry may be involved!
