This was the first rooibos I purchased for myself when I started drinking tea. I have since moved on to primarily drinking loose tea, but I still come back to this tea.

When I first drank this tea, I was expecting something spicier considering the ingredients include cinnamon, allspice, cardamon, ginger, and cloves. The smell of the bags is mostly of cinnamon and cloves, but when brewed the spice falls into the background and the hibiscus is what I mostly smell and taste. This tea does not tend to get as bitter as most of other hibiscus-containing teas I’ve tried which is a definite plus.

I’m almost out of this tea, but I don’t plan on restocking it anytime soon. I have other rooibos blends that I enjoy more.

Bio

I’m a Floridian living in Kansas and currently pursuing a physics Ph.D. by day (…and by night, who am I kidding?) with an immense love for all things tea.

Rating Scheme:

<50 = Undrinkable.
50-59 = Drinkable, but not my cuppa.
60-69 = Decent, but nothing to write home about.
70-79 = Good tea that I drink occasionally. Probably will not restock when it runs out.
80-89 = Very tasty. May or may not restock when it runs out.
90-100 = Delicious. A staple in my collection.
