Tea Company Comments taken from their webpage:
The question we get asked most is, “What’s with the name?” Our answer? When life pisses you off, that’s the best time to break out the vodka. But let’s be honest… sometimes you just can’t hit the bottle when you want to. But it’s ALWAYS time for a soothing cup of tea!
We are tea lovers. We’ve been there, done that, and have gotten pretty angry along the way. We’ve had jobs. We’ve had spouses. We’ve had kids. You know that all of them make you a total loon at some point until you can’t keep it bottled up any more and you start slamming a kid’s plastic golf club on the front stairs screaming at the top of your lungs, “I HAVE HAD IT!!”
Their motto: We Understand..
Personally: I ran into The Angry Tea Room on social media and contacted them about their tea. They were more then happy to send me a few samples to share with all of you. Of course I was curious about the name and the Logo is just as interesting as the teas. They are unique and different with an edge and the descriptions of the teas are fun to read and these folks, are real, they have been there, done that as they say and it shows in their products and descriptions.

Organic South African Rooibos
COSTS: Item was not found on current website.
Price varies according to how much you purchase.
Prior to brew: On first zip of the bag and first sniff it honestly reminded me of a cigar or fruity flavored cigarette. It’s a very pleasant scent but it took me a while to figure out the scent.
Brewed: Of course it’s a very deep red color, it’s a beautiful shade.
Scent: On first sniff it’s got the undertones of a very slight raspberry scent.
Flavor: Sip after sip this tea just got better and better, the mild yet sweet raspberry flavor comes to the surface each time. It’s a full bodied tea with a full flavor.
Sentiments: I loved the color of this tea and the fact it remained raspberry yet a little bit different. I am not sure about the ingredient “Herbal Tea” or the raspberry flavor. The Rooibos is a nice mixture with the fruitiness of the raspberry.
My Tea Vault score values of 1-10 (10 being the best): “7.”
Till next Tea….
