drank Röd Skymning by Kobbs
15 tasting notes

This is a vanilla rooibos tea from a Swedish company, little known outside Sweden it seems. I had a good time tasting Kobbs’ blueberry tea, and I love rooibos, so I came to Röd Skymning with high hopes. Unfortunately, even after 5+ minutes of steeping, the characteristic rooibos aroma just wasn’t coming through, and what little did was utterly obliterated by vanilla flavoring (and it too was not very tasty).

I work in a tea shop. The shop in question mostly sells Mariage Freres teas, so I drink a lot of those.

Chinese black teas are currently my favorite teas, especially Dianhongs, Keemuns, and occasionally Lapsang Souchong. I also love Thai black teas when I can get my hands on them. Of herbal teas, I only drink rooibos and have a strong dislike towards anything that has too much camomile, lavender, etc.

At this point, I’m trying to get a working knowledge of Chinese green teas and Chinese and Thai oolongs.
