Taster’s Review:

This Cherry and Almond Rooibos from Trail Lodge Tea is really delicious!  I’m loving this!

I’ve had a lot of flavored rooibos blends … and some I like better than others.  One thing I’ve noticed is that almond flavor works very well with rooibos, I suspect this has something to do with the fact that rooibos has a natural nutty flavor to it, and when paired with almond flavoring … the sweet, nutty flavor really shines through nicely.

And when you add cherry flavor … this cuppa becomes sensational!  I love the flavor of almond and cherry together … and the base of rooibos and honeybush works so well with these flavors.  The end result is a cup of naturally caffeine free tisane that tastes sweet and nutty with just enough contrasting tart flavor from the cherry to keep the taste buds happy.

What I’m liking best about this is that the flavor of rooibos is not a strong, obvious flavor.  I taste the nutty notes from the rooibos, but not that weird sweetness from the rooibos.  I taste the warm honey notes from the honeybush, but not that sour wood note that sometimes comes with rooibos.  This is just a warm, wonderful cup of yumminess!

A delightful tisane … great for any time of the day.

Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
