drank Vanilla Rooibos by Mountain Rose Herbs
1136 tasting notes

It’s been a while since anybody has left a review for this tisane! Seems like Mountain Rose Herbs has updated the game with some fair trade, kosher and organic certifications. Added some elderflowers to the mix, too.

Picked this up from the local co-op. I rarely drink rooibos but I do get a hankering a few times per year. 1 tsp to 8oz with boiling water is perfect for one glass. This tisane is pretty good, not too rooibos-y. Soft on the vanilla and smells and tastes like a cross between vanilla pipe tobacco and apple hookah tobacco. Thirst-quenching. Not much more to say. I’ll probably restock a small amount of this once per year.

Boiling 5 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Tea became a hobby and my daily drink of choice some time late in the last decade. My introduction to loose leaf came in the form of dumpster-dived Wuyi oolong packets that somebody left upon moving out of an apartment building. From there, my palate expanded to teas from across China and the world. I used to focus more on taste and still harbor the habit, but after trying sheng pu’er, I tend to focus more on how a tea feels in my body. Does it complement my constitution? Does it change my mood or does it enhance my current mindstate? While I may not mention those effects in tea notes, it is what I value most. Flavored teas are not a favorite but I do drink them intermittently.

In terms of who I am, you could consider me a jill of all trades. Specialty is not my strength, as can be seen in the spread of my tea notes. I might have attention issues. One thing I will always love is riding a bicycle.
