Tea from VariaTEA!
Also a sipdown which is pretty great :)

Dude. All these rooibos teas are starting to taste very similar to each other. Like this one and a whole lot of other rooibos teas, all I can taste is the rooibos and the other flavouring just gets lost. This is one of the ones where the apricot/peach/cream gets overshadowed by the woodsy rooibos.
It’s just… rooibos.

Thank you, Rachel, for the tea! Especially all the rooibos! But my tastebuds are just generalizing all these rooibos teas as a regular rooibos. It’s all good though :)

VariaTEA

Oh no. I have had that happen too. I am sorry this one was not more flavorful for you. Nina’s rooibos is pretty strong though. I think once I got used to it, I was able to detect more of the flavors but initially I had the same experience as you. Oh, also, these teas are best when made in smaller cups. I know that is weird but I swear it tasted better in my 4 oz tea cup than it did in my 12 oz mug.

Yeah, the rooibos base is pretty strong! Such a shame that it overpowers the other flavours. I’ll definitely do as you suggested next time. Drink in smaller batches rather than one massive 12oz mug :)

Tea rating guide:
100-95: Best thing to ever touch my mouth and I want more. Restocking is a must
94-80: Love this tea. Restock if I can
79-70: Decent tea. Neither love nor hate.
69-60: I won’t be upset when it runs out. I’ll drink it but won’t restock.
59-30: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea and I’ll finish the cup.
29-10: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea. It may or may not have gone down the sink…
9-below: Let’s not even hide it. This definitely went down the drain.

I love tea.
I drink it.
I log it.
I have a good time.
Lather, rinse, repeat.

I first discovered my love for tea with jasmine teas because that’s all my mother would buy, so for the longest time, I thought that all teas were jasmine! And then in 4th grade, I watched the tea episode of Good Eats and that’s when the education started! I’d like to blame Alton Brown for starting this obsession because now I only like loose leaf tea.
It wasn’t until my second year of college that I actually expanded my tea taste buds. Special shout out to Cara McGee, Tea Queen for her Adagio Fandom blends. Because of Cara, I actually started drinking blacks, herbals and whites and pretty much everything else in between. I still have a special love for my jasmine though :)
I (try to) drink tea daily. Usually just straight up, no sugar or milk. This little obsession started young and just… kept going, I guess.

also I apologize in advance for lazy tasting notes and horrible grammar in everything I write. I was an avid fandom blogger on tumblr and tumblr talk can get in the way of everything kthxbai
