Rooibos is awesome - especially vanilla.

Have you tried a black/rooibos blend with vanilla or chocolate flavoring? That would probably be a good introduction.

This is all so unfair! I love everything about tea.. I love the little tea sets, I love tea time dresses, I love tea snacks, I love pretty tea cups, I love the idea of tea, the smell, I love pretending to have a british accent when I drink it..

Why do I hate tea?! I want to like it so bad!!

Maybe you just haven't found the right tea? I don't like rooibos or oolong, and white and green are just tolerable. I really LOVE most black teas and herbal teas. The concept of not liking ANY tea really just baffles me, because they all taste so different.

Also, I'm no longer a fan of bagged tea. Tea was always really bitter, and I figured that was just part of being tea, just like part of being coffee. Turns out properly brewed whole-leaf tea is rarely bitter, and can be a bit sweet even without adding sugar.

What fruits do you like? A good starting place would be to try an herbal tea made with your favorite fruit(s), then going to flavored teas with your favorite fruit. I LOVE Adagio's Blood Orange tea. Also, try it plain, try it with just sugar or honey, try it with just milk, try it with milk and sugar/honey, and see how you like it.

I used to think I hated tea, too. I actually had just never tried a tea that I liked. There are so many and they're all so different, I just had no idea they all existed. Any time I was offered tea, it was always black tea, so I had no idea there were other varieties. I'm not a huge fan of black, but I love rooibos and herbal. Hibiscus is my current favorite. Vanilla rooibos with cream and sugar will always be one of my absolute favorites.

ALL MY TEAS!

Actually, only the loose teas. I still have some bagged tea.

Eventually I will review each one on my blog, complete with a picture of the loose tea and the brewed tea. The loose tea picture are out of the way now until my next shipment comes in - I'm getting decaf vanilla, honeybush vanilla, white tangerine, and honeybush hazelnut from Adagio for free with my Frequent Cup points Turns out I like honeybush, but I don't like redbush/rooibos.

(edited to fix link)
