I can’t stand rooibos.

Obvisouly I didn’t know that when I purchased this one. Actually it was part of my first order from David’s Tea and I was attracted to the mint and the chocolate, always a winning combination for me ! When I opened the bag, having no idea what rooibos was or tasted like, the smell put me off. I liked the minty chocolate but there was something else there… something almost medicinal… and now I know it’s rooibos.

This one is not too bad, though. It does taste like mint and chocolate and the flavor of rooibos is not TOO present, meaning I will eventually finish my 25g bag. But I’ll be happy to say goodbye when the time comes and won’t re-stock.

Weirdly, what I like the best about this tea is that afterwards, my mug smells incredible. No rooibos at all, in fact not even mint : just chocolate. I can’t explain why but it’s just amazing. I almost only want to drink it for the smell it leaves on my mug, lol !

I’m quite new to tea. Like many people, the tea brand that got me started into loose leaf tea was Davids Tea. It was about 2 or 3 months ago. My first try was Pumpkin Chai and I was blown away.

I started mostly because I was looking for something that would satisfy my sugar cravings without all the calories, and also for the health benefits. I soon realized the world of tea was way larger than what I originally thought, and I’m glad I’m now a part of it !

I’m way intense when I get into something, so I bought too many kinds of loose tea leaf, trying to figure out which ones I would like best… So far, I mostly enjoy flavoured black, green or oolong teas. Anything floral, fruity, minty or sweet is great. I like dessert teas and also enjoy chai teas. The only thing I can’t stand is rooibos. I’ve tried several blends and I had to either give them away or put them in the trash.

Other stuff I’m into include traveling, language learning, TV series, yoga, Harry Potter, reading, writing, eating too much and hiking.
