I tried this hot and didn’t particularly enjoy it. The rooibos had no flavor, and the spices were completely underwhelming. After it cooled to room temperature, I took a few sips to see if it was still bland. As it turns out, the spices really pop when cool. The cinnamon and ginger are the most predominant flavors, with the cloves and nutmeg having a larger presence in the aftertaste. I’ll kill off the rest of the box by making a few pitchers of iced tea at home. At $1/2L, I really can’t complain.

I agree with its developing spiciness after cooling, though I predominantly smell and taste the cloves. Reminds me of clove cigarettes that people used to smoke in high school.

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.
