A few weeks ago I was sent some flavoured matcha by Adagio Teas for review and they were generous enough to include some tea for me to review too. I decided I’d break up the reviews in to separate posts, you can find the flavoured matcha review here.
Next up to be reviewed is Green Rooibos Bonita which is a pretty fantastic name! I was really excited to try this blend as green Rooibos is new to me and I LOVE trying new tea! 😃
As soon as I opened the packet I was hit with an array of citrus smells but also a really tropical aroma. Once the leaves have been steeped they produce a vibrant Amber tea which looks very attractive in my glass teaware 😉
I wasn’t sure how the flavour of green Rooibos would compare to red Rooibos but it’s really awesome. It’s less sickly than red Rooibos which I find can be bit overly sweet when it’s paired with some sweeter ingredients. It’s definitely been one of my most drunk teas since it arrived!
There’s quite an obvious peachy taste to this tea as well which is just the right strength and expertly paired with the green Rooibos.
Overall I’d say this is a fantastic tea that’s definitely worth trying if you’re looking for something new to add to your tea collection. It’s very reasonably priced and can be bought in sample size if you wanna try this tea without the commitment of a large pack.
Thanks so much for taking the time to read my review and thanks to Adagio for sending me this awesome new tea to try. I have a few more Adagio tea reviews coming up so be sure to check back!

Earlier this week my sister gave me some of her Blueberry and Acai teabags from Dr Stuart’s. I don’t usually use teabags but blueberries are my favourite fruit by a mile so I figured why not give these a go?
The first thing I noticed is the packaging, it’s mainly white but with a beautiful deep purple lid and the same purple styling round the box. The teabags are individually packed and have a nice length of string with a nicely weighted piece of card, which is important to avoid the string falling in the cup (one of the main reasons I avoid teabags). The other solution to this problem is to use teabags with a product called Tea Top which I reviewed last week.
As I opened the teabag the blueberry fragrance was lovely, really sweet and had that natural blueberry smell. I poured the freshly boiled water over the teabag and a purple swirl instantly began to fill my mug. The tea has a herby smell alongside the blueberry smell, looking at the ingredients I think this must either be hibiscus or rosehip, hibiscus is great for cardiovascular health which is always a plus!
The taste is sweet but with a slight tang which surprisingly I really like. My ultimate blueberry tea has to be blueberry blaster from Whittards of Chelsea, I love it’s sweet but delicate blueberry flavour and the floral tones. I’m not sure if Dr Stuart’s Blueberry and Acai tea is on the same level but it does have an equally as interesting flavour so there’s really no reason not to drink both, after all variety is the spice of life! (cheesey enough? :p ). I wonder if the difference in the flavour isn’t so much down to the ingredients but to the difference in steeping using teabags versus loose tea, either way I like both 🙂
