The first time I tried a rooibos tea, I didn’t like it. I thought it was tasteless and not strong and it wasn’t very good. That is why I have been putting off trying this tea. But tonight, I finally broke down and made myself a small pot of this with boiling water.

The liquid was a darker brown with a light tan color around the rim of my glass. It looked very pretty. The smell was dark and spicy. It smelled good in my cup. Then I took the plunge and tried it. It was pretty good. I really didn’t taste that much besides cinnamon and another unidentified spice. It was also mellow, which was nice. Overall, it was much better than I expected.

Since it was chai, I wanted to try some of it with a bit of milk. On the half of my second cup, I poured a little Silk Vanilla Soy in my cup. It didn’t bring out any flavors in the tea itself, but it made it smoother. It would have been good if it was boiled with milk at a stronger flavor with just a dash of honey over the stove. If I ever get a chance to try it again, I might try it like that. Or I just might drink it straight since it is very good straight.

I like Steepster, but I find that I come and go as I please. I might spend months on here and then disappear for no apparent reason. It depends on how busy my life is.

I have been moving solidly into the loose leaf tea territory lately and loving it. I have a french press I like brewing my teas in and I have all of my teas straight with no additions the first time I try it.

I like to try everything and I am starting to like everything. I love black tea, green tea, white tea, oolong tea, yerba mate,and honeybush. I’m still not the biggest fan of roobios, but that is probably because I haven’t found the right brand yet.

If you are curious about more than just my tea selection, I am on multiple sites.
