drank Caramel Cream Rooibos by Naked Teas
2900 tasting notes

My Amoda Tea order came in! I ordered several herbals and one caffinated tea. I am doing so well getting through my older teas that I felt I could get some herbals in my cupboard. They are 10g samples, so I will be able to finish them off in no time.

This is a generic red rooibos. I get some hints of something smooth (vanilla) and a bit of woody sweetness, but no strong caramel and creamy vanilla flavours. My next cup will be cooler water since this cup was with boiling water (hotter water brings out the rooibos while cooler water brings out a more balanced flavour).

Flavors: Rooibos, Wood

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 0 sec

Bio

I am a biochem major hoping for a career in research genetics and evolutionary biology. I love science fiction and spend too much of my time reading comic books. I’m a passionate keeper of spiders, cacti, and exotic plants. I eat a vegan, plant-based diet for moral and environmental reasons (I mention this only because it is relevant to which flavoured teas I drink).

I drink mostly flavoured and low caffeine teas/tisanes, but I will try anything twice. As far as pure teas go, I gravitate towards whites, yellows, and jade oolongs. I’m always open for trades and sample sales/exchanges. Message me any time :)

My cupboard is mostly up to date. For a more comprehensive list, see my stash spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-HjWKR3um-xEnj6HC9vMvKXOAyj_bpW5u_2ixEC20-k/edit?usp=sharing
