3 Tasting Notes
This is the tea that got me into drinking tea more than just randomly. This spurned my whole sale change from drinking tons of soda during the work week to drinking tons of tea and a soda for lunch. This tea got me with its intoxicating aroma of Cinnamon and Orange. Orange being one of my favorite smells, and foods. I love orange in many different capacities and figured it couldn’t hurt in a tea. I had always wanted to try red tea so this was me dipping my toe in. This tea while you would think could be very overpowering with taste is not, its very light and the cinnamon and orange pair together amazingly. Something about the soft woodiness of the Rooibos really melds well with the Orange and the spice of the Cinnamon. A definite try if you are a fan of citrus teas or red teas in general. Feels like it would work on both the cold winter night as well as a summer day.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Orange, Wood
Roobios, while not a tea is what got me really into tea drinking late last year. Because of how much I enjoyed Hugo’s Grey Line I decided to try this tea out. It was very good, not a world beater but a good all around tea for the afternoon. I prefer a Cinnamon-Orange Roobios but this is a good substitute. The blueberry is very prominent, as well as the tartness of the Hibiscus which meld together very well. Not my favorite tea but a good all around tea I will continue to use. I especially recommend if you are a fan of either the Hibiscus or Blueberry, the word smooth is very much a word to describe this tea. I think they should change from African Safari’s to African River Cruise.
Flavors: Blueberry, Hibiscus, Smooth, Tart
Earl Grey is one of my favorite teas and this does not disappoint. I enjoyed the very strong Bergamot scent that you get just by taking off the top lid, let alone exposing the tea directly. It does not however overpower the tea and is very delightful, as its can says for feeling stately, wearing top hats and building empires. I try to have at least a cup of this everyday late morning before lunch, while I build my empire at work.
