drank Rooibos Madam Grey by Leros
1317 tasting notes

Right after I finished my Ceylon tea, my father (who went retired today!) come and said he wants a coffee. Well, and he don’t want to drink it alone, so I have picked another tea, this time something caffeine-free as that tea was very caffeine strong.

I apparently picked wrong tea. Rooibos was well present, but “madam Grey” flavour — that citrusy aroma and taste was incredlibly strong, reminding me rather dish soap, noticed only lemon notes. It was indeed very strong, making aroma and taste quite unbearable. Well in ingredients is listed: rooibos 90 %, aroma. So 10 % of that tea bag (2 g) is full of aroma/flavours, or I don’t know what?

It was way too strong! That’s what I disliked on this tea.

Flavors: Citrus Zest, Lemon

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 0 sec 10 OZ / 300 ML

I was permanently scarred by a rooibos Earl Grey. I hope your father finds great pleasure in retirement!

Haha, thank you teafriends! He said to me it is so strange to wake up and in mind “I don’t have to do anything, and I will get money.” Haha.

derk: yep, decent rooibos earl grey will be pretty hard to find I guess. This one was just bad. Too citrusy. But rooibos base wasn’t bad!

I am drinking almost everything. Tea bag collector who moved to wonderful world of loose leaf.

Trying to rate differently tea bags and loose leaf as tea bags have usually worse quality.

Buried in tea right now. Is in my cupboard (trying to be updated) which sparkled your interest? Write me, I would gladly share with you. But I don’t want anything in return now :)
