Short review because I am exhausted, but I just HAD to post about this tea before bed.
I am not a straight rooibos fan, which is ironic considering I married a South African and when we’re around his family they basically breathe rooibos day-and-night. Me, can’t stand it straight, too sweet, not enough “ooumph” that real tea has. Maybe one has to be weaned on it from infanthood to truly appreciate it? Or maybe, as my in-laws always point out, the rooibos here in Canada just isn’t the same as the rooibos back home. Hmmm, okay then?
Wow, this post is getting waaaay longer than I intended! Alright, onto this tea! I can really add nothing new, merely reiterate what has already been stated. This tea is rooibos wrapped in an enigma enshrouded in amaretto-y goodness. I like my rooibos highly flavoured (ie: Cinnamon Chai Rooibos and Coco Chai Rooibos), with the rooibos barely detectable, but adding it’s signature sweetness, body, and red colour to the brew. This tea is a wonderfully flavoured rooibos, you can steep it for AGES and it never goes bitter or strong. Now let’s hope they make it permanent!
