drank Cape Town Rooibos by The Tao of Tea
1758 tasting notes

Needed to add a couple of things on to an Amazon order to get the free shipping, so of course I ordered tea, rooibos in this case. This is a rooibos that tastes very much of that rooibos flavor. It is the first note in this tea and the dominant one. To some degree I can taste the orange peel and the lemon from the lemon verbena. I don’t really taste the spearmint or the chamomile. This is a nice enough tea but if it wasn’t for insomnia I would rather be drinking puerh. But by now I have cut out all caffeine. This is not a tea for someone who doesn’t like the taste of red rooibos.

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.

Flavors: Lemon, Orange Zest, Rooibos

Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

I am Allan. I live and work in Long Island, New York. I have been amassing a tea collection for nearly two years and have spent way too much money. I now try to buy mostly Puerh as I like it most and it lasts nearly forever. Black tea has a habit of going bad. If anyone is interested in tea swaps I am open to ideas and have quite a cupboard.
