A Review of TeaFrog's Tiramisu Rooibos
Pre-steeping, my nose revels in the wonderful and delicious smells
coming from the dry leaves. This tiramisu smells delicious, and it is
strong enough that I can hardly detect the scent of the red rooibos
After steeping, the aroma of rooibos has been brought to a more
prominent place, but the tiramisu is not letting go of its grasp on the
scent and the senses. The liquor has steeped a deep red colour, yet
remains bright and clear. Eagerly, I lift the cup to my lips in
Creamy! This tea has a very thick mouthfeel that actually starts out
being a bit thin, but when the sweetness of the tea finally hits, it
thickens considerably. The rooibos has come through beautifully, though
it almost seems to have too much rooibos flavour (as compared to the
tiramisu). The tiramisu does put forth a good showing, however. It
boldly jumps out at the drinker, and lasts a while, settling in a
delicious aftertaste. With each sip, I'm left wanting to take another
sip and another...
I really enjoyed this tea, which is probably an understatement,
considering how fast I went through the first cup. I gladly give this
tea an 85 out of 100 on my personal enjoyment scale.
Time to go have another cup!
