I grab a blueberry rooibos from basically every brand I ever buy from, and this is one of of my latest ones. I steeped it for like 30 minutes since work got pretty busy today. Steeping rooibos for a long time has never really bothered me before, but it may be to blame for the strange taste this one had. It had a weird acidic bitter flavor that was pretty unpleasant. I was thirsty though, so I just added more sugar to cover it up. The blueberry flavor wasn’t very clear and the green rooibos didn’t add its usually thick sweetness. I’ll try mixing another blueberry tea with this one next time to try to pep it up. And I’ll steep for a reasonable amount of time too, of course. I’ll raise the rating if my next cup of this is better.

I’m an event planner who always has multiple mugs of tea beside me. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, hiking, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, listening to podcasts, and playing with my troublesome kitties.

Favorite flavors: dessert flavors, nutty, melon, mint, strawberry, anything rooibos-related.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free or black. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
