drank Toffee Rooibos Tea by Teavivre
349 tasting notes

Sipdown. Boy, are my sipdowns super slow. In the beginning, I bought way too much of a tea at a time.

The dry leaf smelled good, sweet caramel aroma. It brewed to a pretty deep red, liquor smells of caramel. To me though, the flavor came off as artificial. I do like that it wasn’t overly sweet, but this caramel/toffee flavor rooibos just wasn’t for me. To be fair, I admit that I’m not a huge fan of rooibos and I drink it for health purposes. The strawberry is by far the best of the three.

Longtime casual tea drinker. In the past, mainly Sencha, Matcha. I’m currently into Oolong, Black & Pu’erh.

Gongfu cha is the main way I prepare my tea (gaiwan or Yixing teapot). I drink all tea… Usually unflavored. I do try some flavored now. I don’t like artificial sweeteners.

Favorite stores: TeaVivre, What-Cha, Mandala Tea, Yunnan sourcing, White2Tea, Lupicia. (Note: I love the teaware from TeaVivre and Yunnan sourcing.) Good experiences with 52Teas, Harney & Sons, Whispering Pines

Flavors I dislike are artificial flavors, especially artificial sweeteners. Strong lavender, violet, any strong floral-perfumey tea; cantaloupe, ripe papaya, sweet honeydew.

Can handle a little of the following: Rose, licorice, anise, jasmine, mint, spearmint, peppermint, leather.

Favorite flavors: Citrus fruits (especially grapefruit & tangerines), granny smith apple, bananas, guava, mango, tamarind, watermelon, stonefruits, all fruits except cantaloupe, chocolate, caramel, vanilla, milk, cinnamon, creme, bread, nuts, toasted, roasted.

I generally don’t add anything to my teas.

As I explore, my ratings may shift. 90+ generally means I’ll keep it on my shelf.
