This is the tea that made me realize that there was more out there in the world of rooibos than typical red rooibos. There was green rooibos and it was pretty darn good!

Fruity fruity fruity! Just let the scent beat you with mango for a moment, okay? You know you like it. Sweet, super-ripe, almost musky mango that turns into sweet, perfectly ripe mango as the cup cools. Come on, take another sniff. :smack: Mmm, mango.

Sipping though? Ah, that’s a whole different fruit. Sure, sure, there’s some mango in there. But the citrus, yeah, it’s gonna get in a few hits. Sweet, gentle, sweet, fresh and oh yeah, did I mention sweet? Not bergamot or tangerine. Maybe sweet kumquat skin or the mild but sweet Barnfield orange. And not a single hint of nasty, sour wood to be found.

Basically, this is like a ripe tropical fruit salad in a cup. And not even a wooden cup.

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.

1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
