drank Ginger Bread Orange by Tea Centre
2264 tasting notes

I picked this up at the tea centre in Courtney yesterday, and I’m glad I did even though my mom kept exclaiming about how gross it smelled. :P My mom is a poopyhead, dissing my tea.

It’s surprisingly orange. When steeped, it smells like the classic tea gingerbread flavouring, but steeped up the oils from the Orange Peel really make themselves known. I had it with milk last night and quite enjoyed it.

The rooibos was a little woody, but not too bad imo. Not as good as Janet’s, but definitely drinkable.

1 tbsp in 16 oz BOILING water (Man, I miss my variable temp kettle!) for 4 min.

Does she not like rooibos in general or I wonder if it was something else about the tea that makes her think it smells gross? Gingerbread + orange sounds pretty good to me!

OMGsrsly

Hahaha. She generally hated flavoured teas. So maybe the mix between the flavouring and the rooibos?
