When combined with rooibos, citrus flavors (other than orange) often wind up tasting like cleaner to me. Unfortunately, that’s where this one falls. When it was warm, it was bearable, but when cold brewed, the flavor was very strong and unpleasant. I think it’s the alcohol flavoring and the lime together than I find disagreeable. I gave a sip to someone else and asked them to name what they tasted, and they said cough syrup, so I guess there are multiple interpretations to this flavor combination, but neither one positive so far. I really don’t like alcohol flavors though, so I think I won’t leave a score for this tea. If it were just lime and ginger, maybe I would have liked it, but even that isn’t a preferred combo for me. Anyway, this was from the mystery box, so it was certainly interesting trying something I would not buy for myself.

Bio

I have an office job, but when I’m not there, I like to spend most of my time with my family. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, taking walks, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, listening to podcasts, and playing with my cats.

Favorite flavors: Almond, strawberry, nutty, dessert flavors, melon, mint, green rooibos blends.

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

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free. I’ll try just about anything though!

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
