This is a tea from Teaplz’s plea to take it away. I’m trying to find a decent rooibos tea or two as I’ve heard good things about rooibos helping allergies, and tis the allergy season. (Not that that matters for me, as I have them year round, but hey, if it means not having to take a pill that makes me feel drowsy and puts my sniffer out, I’m for it).
Looking at the leaves, I see the wood chip looking red rooibos and mint leaves. The dry leaves smell sweet.
Once steeped this tea smells sweet and minty with a touch of fruit. I taste a bit of sweetness, can definitely taste the mint. I’ve never had minty rooibos before, but there is definitely more going on in this tea. Looking at the description, I definitely get no chocolate. I want to like this because of the mint, I enjoy mint when I want it, but there is something tart that doesn’t go quite well with this mix.
Hrmmm…I think I like my teas less complex than this. This tea is trying to do too much in my mouth.
If anyone cares to try this, I have about an ounce in a baggie I could pass along.
