I’m finally trying the last tea from my November order. This one is surprisingly sour. I wouldn’t say I can taste dragon fruit specifically. It’s kind of just generically fruity. After brewing the leaves regularly, I did a second round with them cold brewed, and I actually enjoyed that one more. Maybe because the sourness disappeared and the tasty green rooibos was allowed to shine. To me, Adagio is still the king of the fruity green rooibos blends. I would not repurchase this one.

Simpson & Vail Advent Calendar – Day 4

(originally written November 4th)

I’m actually rather excited for this one. The other green rooibos blends I’ve tried from Simpson & Vail in the past have been quite tasty. Plus, this smells amazing in the packet – fruity, tart, and juicy.

It’s good, but not great. There’s a little bit too much hibiscus – it’s not overpowering but it is just a bit too tart. The fruit flavor is tasty though. I don’t know what dragonfruit tastes like, but this makes me think of strawberry-kiwi. There’s a touch of citrus as well, and maybe a hint of green apple.

It would probably be perfect with a touch of sweetener, but I prefer not to add anything to my tea so I likely won’t be purchasing this one. It’s close to being great, though! I’m definitely glad I got to give it a try.

Every time I tried a dragonfruit tea I always thought it tasted like strawberry/kiwi, too. Sounds like that would be a scrummy iced tea. I’ve never liked how red rooibos tastes iced (though I like it warm) but love green rooibos as an iced base.

You’re probably right on the iced tea. I may have to add this to my inevitable S&V order after all…

I bet Central Market would have dragonfruit if you ever wanted to try the real thing.

I think I’ve seen them even at my local supermarket, I’ve just never bought one. XP

Simpson & Vail sent a sample over with my order. Of course I’ll try it! I’m not exactly sure what dragonfruit should taste like but this is tasty. Plenty of some sort of fruit flavor (and S&V’s flavors are usually accurate.) But there are other fruits here: apple, mango, strawberry, orange, lemon. I actually see chunks of fruit (mango?) and orange blossoms. They are pretty tasty together. Just fruit fruit fruit. Hibiscus is mentioned but I definitely don’t think there is too much here, or really any that is noticeable in my serving. That is a good thing! A green rooibos is always refreshing to see, there aren’t many of them. Both steeps are very flavorful and delicious!
Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons for a full mug// few minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // 5 minute steep

Oh sweet, orange blossom too. Always nice!

Sipdown number 10! Thanks to Phi for sharing this with me.

I have no idea what dragonfruit tastes like, so this tea tastes like a berry medley to me. The flavor is tart and sweet, the rooibos is woodsy, and the overall effect is cheerful. It’s a solid evening cuppa. I wouldn’t turn it down but I’m not in love with it either.

This is a very good rooibos with what is a sweet and sour taste. It’s a pleasant sour as opposed to a negative sour. This is very good. A couple of the ingredients are slightly off as everything was not exactly in the catalog. We need to improve the Steepster catalog of ingredients for herbal teas which often have weird ingredients.

I brewed this one time in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with 3 tsp leaf and boiling water for 5 minutes.
