Another pot of tea please and more fruit. I’m loving the fruit teas today. My stomach is a little off today so a caffeine free fruit tea has to be a winner right now.

This blend is mostly Rooibos with a large pinch of lemongrass mixed amongst it. I only see a couple of tiny raspberry pieces and something light yellow like perhaps lemon rind? So far it’s not looking as fruity as I had hoped for. Scent is quite fruity and sweet but the lemon dominates the raspberry.

Once steeped this tea is coppery in colour and has a sweet and very thick Rooibos scent. No real fruit scent to speak of.

There is supposed to be raspberry in this? I can’t taste any at all. It tastes like plain Rooibos with a hint (a very very delicate hint) of citrus fruit. I can’t explain the flavour of Rooibos other than it has an ‘ick’ factor about it, some chemical/weird flavour amidst a light and sweet tea. In other words a Rooibos fan might love this tea but for me it lacks flavour.

I’m 34 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.

My rating system
I have my own way of rating teas that makes each one personal. I have different categories, I rate each tea depending on what it is made of. For example: I rate green teas in a different way to black teas or herbal teas. So black, white, green, Pu Erh, Rooibos, Oolong, blends and tisanes all have their own rating system. That way I can compare them with other teas of the same or similar type before for an adequate rating. And when I do give top marks which is very rare I am actually saying that I would love to drink that tea all day, every day if possible. It’s a tea that I would never turn down or not be in the mood for. So while I agree that no tea is 100% perfect (as nothing is) I am saying that it’s as close as it comes to it. After all, in my book the perfect teas (or close to perfect anyway) are ones that I could drink all the time. That is why you will find a high quality black or Oolong will not have as high a score as a cheap flavoured blend, they are simply not being compared in the same category.
