drank Rooibos Tropica by Teavana
353 tasting notes

Steeped 2 teaspoons in 16 oz for 5.5 minutes. Added 1 tsp of rock sugar.

Dried, this tea smells like bubblegum. Steeped, the smell is less intense. The taste is also less intense but I can taste the almost Froot Loops taste underneath the rooibos. Maybe it needs more sugar?

My overall reaction to this tea is: Meh.

I’m a tea-aholic. I’ve always loved tea. It is soothing and warm and comforting. I always had it when we went out to eat as a child so my first association is with rich and delicious food.

As an adult, I’m learning to enjoy tea on its own merits, and bask in its subtleties and varieties. The ritual of making a cup of tea is instantly relaxing.

I prefer oolong and white teas, followed by greens. For the most part, I don’t like straight black tea, but appreciate it as part of a blend or flavored. I’ve learned to love the world of flavored teas out there.

I’m slowly learning to appreciate rooibos blends, which I started drinking for its anti-inflammatory properties.

Love: Oolong, almond, coconut, peach
Hate: Ginger
