drank Rue the Day by Friday Afternoon
2080 tasting notes

The scent when I opened the bag smelled so strongly of anise that I was a little afraid…I tried to include as little anise as possible in my basket, but the flavor still shows up pretty strongly in the tea. I can taste a little black tea underneath, but it’s really mostly anise. I don’t find myself minding the flavor though. I wish I tasted the sour cherry, but nothing can overcome the anise. This is one of the better Friday Afternoon teas I’ve tried from the TTB surprisingly! It was satisfying with some milk.

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
