This is a bagged rooibos blend I bought while here at my parent’s house in MD.

I wasn’t expecting much but was pleasantly surprised to find this is quite drinkable. The Viennese cinnamon flavor is fairly strong and well balanced by the bright/sweetness of the orange flavor. You don’t taste as much rooibos as cinnamon and orange. It was good with a splash of soymilk as well. Not bad for an everyday afternoon or evening tisane.

I haven’t tried this one but have a lot of Twinings. They are actually pretty flavorable, especially for bagged tea.

That does sound good. Not that I need any more tea in the cabinet, but “need” is such a subjective word, isn’t it?

This sounds interesting because I’m a cinnamon nut and like spicy orange teas. I haven’t had rooibos yet – some waiting for me in the cupboard (Pumpkin Spice Roobios), but haven’t tried, think I’m reluctant because I have an instinctual feeling Roobios isn’t going to be my thing. We shall see.

@Maddy Barone – I don’t “need” any more tea myself but I still keep getting more :)
@Lupiressmoon – I used to really dislike rooibos but lately it’s been growing on me. I find it helps if you give it a good, long steep (over 5 minutes)

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
