drank Vanilla Rooibos by Silkenty
1872 tasting notes

There is wonderful quote on the wrapping of pyramid sachet:
“I closed my eyes and could picture the vast open space, so much land, so much sky, and in the distance I could hear the beat”

Enjoyed with store-bought Vanini pear-cinnamon chocolate. I am not really sure if I have seen pear tea before? Oh, maybe few days back with some tasting notes? My browser history says yes – it was there: Pear Ambrosia by AJRimmer and Jasmine Poached Pears by amandastory516. But overall? I never saw pear tea in stores over here. To be honest, I kinda understand it, I don’t like pears alone as well. And tea with pear flavour? I am afraid it won’t be a favourite.

Back to the tea. It brews clear, nice dark copper colour with strong wet wood rooibos aroma. I notice some sweet notes there too, but if it is vanilla, I am not really sure to be honest. In taste, yeah rooibos is overwhelming. But, same as in aroma, there are sweet notes. I notice it is vanilla, maybe I am bit too affected as I am just trying to find it… and as it cools down it is bit metallic I assume. Hmm.

Add more vanilla and call it then vanilla rooibos. This way it is really hard to find any vanilla taste here.

Flavors: Metallic, Wet Wood

I am drinking almost everything. Tea bag collector who moved to wonderful world of loose leaf.

Trying to rate differently tea bags and loose leaf as tea bags have usually worse quality.

Photographer now and then. Postcrossing and geocaching member. Very curious person. Logistics student (should finish in June 2021).

Buried in tea right now. Is in my cupboard (trying to be updated) which sparkled your interest? Write me, I would gladly share with you. But I don’t want anything in return now :)
