drank Red Rose Rooibos by Tiesta Tea
347 tasting notes

Sample sipdown! I don’t get the name of this tea – it has “red rose” in the name, but it’s actually a really citrusy rooibos with some barely-there floral notes. I dumped the rest of my sample in without measuring, so it was probably 2-3 tsp. Steeped for 5min, it was very dark and quite citrusy. I added eggnog, which mellowed it out and made it pretty drinkable.

Flavors: Citrus, Rooibos

Well it has been over a year and everyone I know thinks my tea obsession is a bit out of hand, so… I guess I’m not a total newbie anymore. :)

I’m drinking a lot more pure tea these days, though I still love a good flavoured blend too. Current favourites: Chinese and Taiwanese blacks, fresh Chinese greens, oolongs both green and roasted, sheng puer.

I really love companies that buy directly from tea farmers, and have an emphasis on quality and sustainability. Favourites: Verdant, Whispering Pines, Eco Cha, White 2 Tea. I live in a small town in the middle of nowhere, so I buy almost all my tea online.

For hot tea, I’m usually brewing in either a 100ml gaiwan, or a 10oz mug with a steeping basket. For cold tea, I cold brew overnight in 500ml mason jars.

My cupboard on Steepster doesn’t include small samples, just the ones I have at least 15g of. So if you see something you’re interested in, I probably have enough to share. :)
