The first rooibos sample I’m trying from the myriad of rooibos/honeybush samples I purchased from Adagio. I actually had a taste for apples, so I thought this tea would be perfect. When I opened the pouch I was hit with what reminded me of scented candles or potpourri. Not necessarily a bad thing, but a bit different to say the least.
The tea actually tastes very sweet. I’m wondering why this is, but maybe it’s the apple? I think I did see apple pieces in it or something, but I doubt that really contributes to the flavor. I’m not getting blasted by cinnamon like other reviewers are, but maybe it builds up on your tongue over time.
Okay, I had to go back and edit this note. The tea was just too sweet and became overly artificial tasting as I kept drinking. I guess my boyfriend was right when he said it truly tasted like drinking a candle >.
