drank Mango-Papaya by Tea Desire
1908 tasting notes

When I added the water a distinct odor wafted up out of the cup at me. The odor of…raspberries??? That’s the only thing I can call it, and nary a hint of mango OR papaya in the scent anywhere. The flavour is predominently rooibos – not my favorite to begin with – with a rather faint, sweet, generically fruity taste.

Yeah…it’s not really doing much for me I’m afraid.

I think I’ve completely given up on rooibos teas. I’ve never had one that didn’t have that awful dusty rooibos taste that I dislike so much.

When I lived in the UK, I found a few red teas that were nice, including one I thik was called 11 O’Clock Tea, but it is hard to a roobios here in America that doesn;t get bitter quickly or is nice to drink by itself.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
