The jasmine was too pungent for me. The rooibos base was decent, but the jasmine was too strong. I just wish it were balanced differently. Thanks for sharing, Cameron B!

Hmmm…. This seems like a weird blend to me. Do you think if it was mixed differently or with a better base it would work? My brain can’t wrap around this duo

Yeah, I can’t see those going together at all. Not even holding hands.

Umm…no

I hate bergamot on a rooibos base, despite loving rooibos and bergamot individually. I imagine I’d feel pretty much the same about jasmine on rooibos…

Ha yeah, I love rooibos, so I’ll try any combination, but this was never really going to be a winner for me!

I don’t usually love teas with this flavor profile, but this isn’t bad! The spices and orange are all very prevalent and warming. Not a repurchase, but pleasant!

Cold, this is quite refreshing, if unremarkable. I taste maybe some floral flavors on top of a decent tea backdrop. Actually, the more I drink it, the more I enjoy it. I’m not sure what this is going for, but I’d drink it again!

TTB sample! I really taste the hazelnut! I think this tea is pretty accurately named. I get the desserty, cookie-ish vibe for sure! Nice with sugar and milk.

This is a little one dimensional. It’s mostly rooibos with a bit of cinnamon. I would have liked something more! Thanks Cameron B for the sample!

drank Cashew Turtle by 52teas

I love how this nutty blend is a little bit salty. It adds to the authenticity. The packet recommends a three minute steep, but that tasted a bit too long. This was quite hearty, but I still prefer the somewhat similar rocky road flavor!

drank Gin & Tonic by DAVIDsTEA

This is very herbaceous. I also taste too much licorice. Cold, I find the flavor a bit interesting, but I really wish the licorice were toned down more. The second time I had this, it was less herbaceous, maybe edging toward fruit or mint, but it was a little boring. I really wanted to like this one, but it sadly wasn’t for me.

This is a nice mild EG! It’s creamy and subtle, but really pleasant! I bought this for my sister, and she loved it too. We never tasted the caramel though.

I would be so disappointed to buy a caramel tea and not get caramel flavor!

drank Peppy Mint by Bird & Blend Tea Co.

Free sample from an order! It’s mostly bright and quite minty, but with a definite bit of murkiness. It’s pleasant and refreshing, but I accidentally drank another mint tea right before this, and I prefer the other one!

This is a nice milk oolong! I don’t taste much more going on other than that, but I’m enjoying it with added milk! It’s by far my favorite of the zodiac teas. The resteep was really nice too. It’s just so rich and buttery! I never tasted any of the fruit that’s supposed to be there.

Bio

I’m an event planner who always has multiple mugs of tea beside me. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, hiking, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, listening to podcasts, and playing with my troublesome kitties.

Favorite flavors: dessert flavors, nutty, melon, mint, strawberry, anything rooibos-related.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free or black. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
