drank Rooibos Peach by Adagio Teas

Reading multiple positive reviews, it makes me feel like the crazy one, but this tea has a much too strong chemical ater taste for my liking. What I did was mix it together with a tin of plain red rooibos I had, and together, they taste very nice. I like the peach flavor; it just needs more rooibos to overpower the chemicals.

I’ve actually had several teas lately where the artificial flavoring had a “metallic” sort of aftertaste to me (from Adagio and others) so I think I know exactly what you are talking about when you say it tastes chemical. I’m wondering if there is a certain brand of flavorings that my palate is sensitive to, and they are getting used way too strongly…

That must be it! I really enjoy most flavored teas, but occasionally there’s one that’s just strange. Glad I’m not alone in this!

Bio

I’m an event planner who always has two 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, and listening to podcasts.

Favorite flavors: Almond, strawberry, nutty, dessert flavors, melon, mint, 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. 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
