Recent Tasting Notes
Lots of rooibos, lots of lavender. I don’t taste the orange peel or vanilla bean when I brew this hot or cold. Not a lot to say other than it is fairly tasty, but tastes like lavender rooibos. Rooibos base is less minerally than many are. It is sweet, woody, kind of tastes like nectar. Makes a good latte too!
Flavors: Herbs, Lavender, Nectar, Rooibos, Sweet
Old tasting note
Initially, woody. Flavours of bark, dried firewood (not piney), after taste of subtle maple lea and uncondensed maple syrup. Afternotes of roasted/ash?
It is kind of like the flavour of a maple leaf stem. Not piney smoke, but distinctly woody and similar to firewood. Absolutely fantastic. It is like nothing I have tasted before.
Flavors: Ash, Bark, Maple, Oak wood, Roasted nuts, Sweet Potatoes, Tannin, Toasted, Wood
I’m liking this one the more I drink it. Luckily, this is a sipdown.
The roasty green tea doesn’t go with cocoa and vanilla bean at all. I also don’t really like the green tea used in this, but I can’t quite put my finger on why. Anyway, I didn’t enjoy this one very much, so I’m glad I can remove it from my focus box.
Flavors: Char, Chocolate, Earth, Roasted, Roasted Barley, Vanilla, Wood
Toasty green tea with vegetal qualities, similar to a bai mu dan white. Lots of vanilla undertones. No cocoa flavour, but it does fine without it. Thick mouthfeel.
Flavors: Green, Mineral, Roasted, Toasted, Toasty, Vanilla, Vegetal
Visited this tea farm (yes, there is a tea farm in Canada) and tried a sample of this.
Initially, it is very herbal, strong peppermint and lemongrass. In the after taste there is a strong flavour of licorice root and iron/minerals. Licorice root reminds me of poorly used artificial sweeteners because of that lingering fake oversweetness. This blend would be great if you like licorice root, but it is definitely not for me.
Flavors: Herbs, Lemongrass, Licorice, Medicinal, Metallic, Mineral, Mint, Peppermint, Sweet
Queued tasting note from Saturday morning!
Fantastic rooibos base, one of the best rooibos I have ever had. Sweet, aromatic lavender. The lavender tasted very fresh. The rooibos was a bit woody, but not metallic/minerally like some rooibos. I found the creaminess really smooth, it was almost like I added milk. All around, this was a really great tea.
Flavors: Cream, Creamy, Floral, Lavender, Milk, Rooibos, Sweet, Wood

Forgot to log a few teas yesterday. I did a tasting session with some friends, and they really liked this one too.
I really like how toasty and woody it is. It does make sense it is from dried tea plant stems. If you like the idea of a tea made with toasted twigs, this is for you. It is a big of a darker roast in flavour, but I like it. No smoke or char, just delicious wood scent and toasty goodness.
Flavors: Dry Grass, Nutty, Roasted, Stems, Tea, Toasted, Toasty, Wood
This is my morning cup, surprised I haven’t reviewed this before! I picked this up on our trip to the island a year ago. It’s a nice rooibos with a good sweet flavor from the vanilla, a nice linen mouthfeel and slight flavor from the lavender, and a good rooibos base, not too scratchy! The orange isn’t really present, maybe a mild tang in the aftertaste. For a ref rooibos, this is quite enjoyable. Nice warming and richer cup today as I continue my caffeine hiatus.
