drank Maple Rooibos by Design a Tea
416 tasting notes

I left my mug at home, so I had to drink this one out of a styrofoam cup at the office, which doesn’t help the taste. The rooibos is woodier than is pleasant. Maybe I can blame that on the fact that the water doesn’t get hot enough to boil at the office. The maple definitely isn’t strong enough. I wouldn’t even know it’s there if I weren’t looking for it.

Not sure which is worse … foam cups, or having to heat water in a shared Keurig!

I know! Office brewing never does my tea justice.

I have some travel upcoming … the only way I know to combat hotel and conference room tea water is to take heavy duty flavors … cinnamon, strong mint, etc.

(I have a little Hot Shot water heater in my own office, which I can patrol. That helps, but work tea is still non-optimal.)

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
