drank BA36: Lemon Rooibos by Upton Tea Imports
11107 tasting notes

I picked this up on a whim since we were placing an order with upton for brew baskets anyway. Man are their baskets cheap at the moment! I mostly just wanted to see if this managed to taste even remotely close to della terra’s lemon blends.

Well folks? not even sort of. lol Talk about rooibos flavoured lemon lol. While i don’t mind the taste of rooibos 95% of the time, there are certain teas that just taste like rooibos….with a dash of other flavours. this is one of those teas. While not totally gross, it’s certainly nothing that is terribly appealing.

Preparation

Yesterday I drank “River Song”, an adagio fandom blend that is a mix of earl grey moonlight, coconut, & rooibos lemon cloud. I haven’t commented on it here, as I was busy actually working for once, LOL, but it wasn’t unpleasant, at least! Lemme know if either of you want a sample :)

Oh, & I should add, 2 out of 3 of those are black teas, so the rooibos is just a bystander, but the lemon was definitely on stage!

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling as well!

Most of that is on hold these days though, including tea drinking like I used to as I have a new little one who eats up all my spare time.
