Another from Momo’s teaboxB! I just got the ’Here’s Hoping’ teabox I started back today, but I haven’t opened it yet because I’d really like to get a handle on this teabox first. Teabox B is definitely first priority, but I might not be able to mail both boxes until the same time anyway. I’d like to at least have it ready to go in case I CAN make it to the PO though. I will resist the urge to even open the other teabox for a couple days! It is BIG. There are at least ten more teas I’d like to try from this teabox, but it will probably end up being more.

Anyway, on to the tea. This might be the first straight green rooibos I’ve tried. (I know Teataku after me in the teabox order wants green rooibos so I will just try a teaspoon! :D) It’s actually very nice! Green rooibos seems to pair very well with pear (I swear I didn’t mean to just use pair and pear in the same sentence.) There is less of a cream flavor but there is definitely a pear flavor! Seems kind of like apple at times. But the pear is very distinct throughout the entire cup. The rooibos is nice and less scratchy on my throat than most rooibos. A nice change from red rooibos! I really need to find some tea filter bags for rooibos though, as I suddenly stopped loving rooibos as much as I once did. But I’m sure filter teabags would help!

Hi! I love tea and trying new ones – it adds a bit of variety to my day! Books, music, TV & movies are my thing… and tea, of course.

My icon photo is Richard Mayhew from the graphic novel ‘Neverwhere’ by Neil Gaiman, Mike Carey & Glenn Fabry.

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. (Or as evidenced by the great computer hiatus of 2019, something happened to my computer.) :D

Happy sipping!
