Sipdown (97)! I’ve been hesitant to try this one because I do not like rooibos. However, I thought after a few other flavored rooibos teas that turned out okay, I could venture into this sample. I can’t remember who sent this one to me, but thanks!

I’m pleasantly surprised that I could not take the rooibos at all. The raspberry note is the most prominent in this cup and it almost has a heavy, syrupy texture to it as well. I can tell that there is another fruity flavor other than raspberry, so I’m guessing that’s the pomegranate? It’s hard to tell. Considering the rooibos base, it’s not so bad. I probably wouldn’t buy this for myself, but it was a pleasant afternoon tea for today!

Edit: As the cup cooled down to lukewarm temps, the rooibos suddenly jumped in and said, “Here I am!” That medicinal taste was not a pleasant surprise. In conclusion, piping hot, this tea is decent. As soon as it cools a bit, my dislike of rooibos takes over and refuses to keep drinking.

I’m a California girl temporarily located in Boston for school (brrr). I only recently got into teas because I’ve never really liked coffee (too bitter), but I have been a daily barley tea drinker since I was little.

Through some timid tastings and exploring, I so far like:
-Japanese green teas (genmaicha, hojicha, sencha, etc)
-Oolongs! (Most kinds except formosa and dan cong so far)
-Straight black teas
-English Breakfast teas
-Fruity teas (peach, apple, strawberry, other berries)

NOT a huge fan of rooibos, matcha, heavily artificial tasting teas, or anything gingery or peppery, but I’m trying to keep an open mind and taste everything that I can!

I’m trying to sample more straight teas and have been having pretty awesome discoveries so far. Thank goodness for sample sizes!

My tentative rating system:
90-100: Woohoo! I’m loving it, and I’m definitely restocking when I get the chance and/or crying when I’m out.

80-90: Yum! I’ll try to restock if it fits in my budget when I run out.

70-80: Probably would not buy again, but it was nice enough to finish the cup.

50-70: Would not choose this tea for myself if given the situation, but would not reject it if someone offered it to me and would gulp down politely.

50 or less: Nope. Don’t care to taste that tea again, sorry!

I’m always down to swap, so send me a message if anything in my cupboard is calling your name!
