739 Tasting Notes
So after cycling to work today I needed a good rooibos blend so I picked this out of my work stash as it’s been a little while since I’ve logged it. Such a nice raspberry cream flavour. Turns out I’ve done approx. 21km (13 miles) today. Not bad but I might be pretty tired tomorrow :D
Flavors: Cream, Raspberry
Normally I do this for about a 1 minute steep. I also normally don’t experiment with tea steeps unless I have milk or something on hand to fix an overstep bitterness. Today I just decided to put being prepared aside and steeped this for close to 3 minutes. It reminds me of some oolongs I have tried but I can’t place the flavour exactly. Maybe next time if I steep it a bit longer I can make it out.
I need my lemony caffeine. Why there aren’t more lemon guayusas out there I’ll never know. The closest thing I can find is mates. I shall keep looking but so far no replacement is good enough to fill the void this tea will leave once it is finally gone. Lemon creamy good tea.

I upped the rating on this because a 5 minute steep brings out the vanilla more. I can still taste the bergamot and I can definitely taste the orange pekoe base. So it comes a bit more balanced than the last time I tried it. So a decent cup to buy especially since you can pick it up almost anywhere.
Flavors: Bergamot, Vanilla
