I’m having this hot with some milk after eating a marshmallow chocolate noodle dessert monster. All of my senses are temporarily shot from a sweetness overload.
I’m mainly picking up honeybush and cream with a lemon hued finish. Texture: First part flaky pastry then a jam filled second part. I can’t taste the rooibos.
I’m indifferent to rooibos, and am not generally a fan of honeybush but this is a solid blend with a great aroma. The lemon is a buttery frosting kind, and not at all a pointy “cleaning” variety of citrus. That in itself is a nice change from the citrus infused teas and tisanes I normally drink.
With every sip I’m growing fonder of it. I’m sending the rest off into the chaotic realm of the Christmas-impacted post office, but I would definitely think of ordering another bag of this.
