Leaf Type: Rooibos
Where to Buy: Adagio Teas
Rooibos tea from South Africa infused with the delicate scent of the night-blooming jasmine flowers. If you enjoy jasmine tea, we urge you to try the sublime taste of its well-made varieties. This unique flavor produces a sweet, caffeine-free cup with a light and lingering scent of fresh jasmine flowers.
With some teas, they grow on me and I find that as I continue to drink the tea, I like it better and better. With this tea, it’s – sadly – quite the opposite. I liked it the first time I tried it, but now after having had a couple of cups of this tea, I am finding that I like it less.
I had high hopes for it. I ~LOVE~ jasmine, and was really hoping that this would be awesome, and I’m a bit disappointed that it isn’t all I had hoped it would be.
Somehow, the sweet yet sharp jasmine flavor does not meld well with that funky saccharine-y sweet taste of the rooibos. I can taste the woody notes of the rooibos, which is at times pleasant (depending upon the blend), but, here, it just doesn’t work for me. I really wish it did – but it just doesn’t.
Don’t get me wrong, it isn’t a bad tea, but, I just don’t hold it in as high regard as I wanted to. It doesn’t do jasmine justice, and I think that is a shame.
I would really love to hear from our readers that have tried this tisane and enjoyed it. I would love to hear other perspectives on this interesting yet disappointing blend.
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
