This one is definitely better with milk. Sadness. I’ll probably try to finish the travel mug of this today for hydration, but the rooibos is really coming out and it does need to be softened with some cream IMO.

Oh yeah, I recall only liking it with milk, but was impressed with the flavouring when it was fresh.

The cherry flavouring in this rooibos crosses all cherry territories, including my favourite cherry blasters and actual cherries. Tart hibiscus and goji are extremely subtle. When I do pick up on those two ingredients, they add a layer of depth the otherwise syrupy sweet cherry profile.

Bear With Me recommended this in the store and I’m glad I was easily persuaded. This is my favourite go to tisane in the evening right now; it tastes so “red.”

Flavors: Cherry, Goji

i’ve decided that i don’t like goji berries. they interfere with things that are good. bah. This roooibos was another from yesterday from bear with me. This one was one that i had high hopes for because of the smell, but brewed it was a weird sort of fruity, creamy rooibos with that distinctly goji berry taste, CURSE YOU GOJI! lol thanks for the decidely different tea BWM! still fun to have.

Final Count of 2014: 85 (goal was 75 so i’m giving myself until the end of the weekend to get there…) 2014 was the year where i tried 818 new teas, bringing my total up to 2216 teas tried (roughly) since i joined steepster.

Veronica

Wow… you’re my tea sipping hero! :)

Sil

cupboard is going to go up a bunch in the new year….but i’ll keep trudging along lol

Anlina

Wow, that’s a tonne of teas! I am both impressed by how many you’ve tried and how small your cupboard is.

Sil

Anlina – it’s been a loooong journey from 350+ to this small lol made easier now by knowing what sorts of teas i really like. heh

Bear With Me

I have to say, I had a LOT of fun dishing stuff out for you!

Sil

haha

Another rooibos I dared myself to try. This is packed with cherries, goji berries, and hibiscus. The dry leaf smells like fruit leather, so we’re off to a great start.

With some light cream, Bon Rouge is mostly cherry with a touch of goji, but very faint. I can’t even detect the hibiscus. The base is also ultra light. That Nordic mug of mine which was nearly filled to the brim merely twenty minutes ago is now empty and I’m tempted to make one more cup today, polishing off the sample. It’s like I just didn’t get my fill of it yet.

I would have liked a little more cherry but I’ll steep it a little longer next time to see if I can amp up the flavours.

I took Amariel down to Janet’s today so she could pick up samples of some of the teas she’d been eyeing up (and I set her up with some healthy sized samples of the rooiboses I already had in stock, in hopes of helping her find a rooibos or two that she actually likes). Of course I was more than happy to take her down there, because really, I can ALWAYS use an excuse to go see Janet ;)

Last time I was in, I’d mentioned the Grapefruit Earl Grey I have from Bayswater, and she was VERY excited that such a tea exists because she LOVES grapefruit, but her suppliers haven’t been able to source grapefruit :( So today I took her a little bag with a few cups’ worth and she was SUPER excited about it!!!!! I’m thinking of getting either my sister or one of my mainland friends to pick up more for me (250g, I think), and giving Janet a full 50g of the grapefruit goodness! She’s always so kind to me, it’s the least I could do!

So, of course, I couldn’t leave empty handed, and as my Visa cried I ended up with more pumpkin pie rooibos (because between me and the lovely people I’ve been sharing it with, I was almost out already), more boysenberry black (because I can see myself drinking a LOT of it in the near future with the way the weather has turned), lemon rooibos, cranberry rooibos, a lovely oolong, and this red goodness.

I’m honestly not a rooibos fan, but Janet does flavoured rooibos right! It tastes like yummy things, not just sticks!!!

A friend of mine picked this one up last time we were in, gave me a bit, and I was instantly addicted. Sweet cherries, a pop of goji berry, and a slight tang from the hibiscus, this is a really refreshing cuppa hot or iced!

I LOVE cherries and cherry flavoured things. I’ve struggled to find a tasty cherry tea since Teaopia went away and took Wild Cherry (a cherry fruit tisane) with it, but this is actually even better! It’s sweet, but the hibiscus cuts the sweetness enough that it doesn’t just coat your mouth like cherry syrup. I almost want to make some double-strength and add soda water and vodka and make my own version of Mike’s Hard Cherry (a vodka cooler available in local liquor stores, and one of my favourite coolers)…

Flavors: Cherry, Fruity, Goji, Sweet, Tart

OMGsrsly

Pumpkin pie rooibos… drools a la Homer Simpson

Bear With Me

hehehe, I have a BIG tin of it now (and it’ll be gone in no time flat, haha)

OMGsrsly

My BFF, who really hates rooibos, actually said she’d consider drinking it. So that’s pretty high praise!

Fjellrev

I’m totally going to have to try her rooibos blends then. :D

Bear With Me

My biggest recommendations are pumpkin pie, rainbow, plum, and bon rouge. The chocolate honeybush is also worth a try. :)

Fjellrev

Awesome, I can’t wait to check them out. And it’s so great that she offers those sample sizes too.

Indigobloom

I miss Teaopia! Darn you Starbucks… I mean Teavana…

Bear With Me

Her sizes are ridiculously generous, even the “samples” are enough for a good 3+ cups. And for $1 a piece? Hard to beat it.

I miss Teaopia too :( it was infinitely better than Teavana!

Fjellrev

I was just there and she told me that you’re lovely, btw. ;)

Bear With Me

Oh Janet <3

Indigobloom

It really was loads better! plus I have a sentimental attachment, I friended one of the girls who worked there and she introduced me to the Tea Guild! sighs
