This is another one of the teas I received in a trade with silvermage2000/Ashley.
The smell of this tea…wow, it’s just incredible. I open the bag and instantly I’m bombarded with scents of luscious mango, peaches, and papayas with undertones of rose. If they made a perfume out of this tea I would so totally buy it!
I’ve never had a green rooibos tea before – I’m not a huge fan of it’s red cousin, but people have said that the flavour is considerably different, so I was willing to give this tea a shot. The taste starts out similar to a red rooibos tea, though not as woody or tart, and then it changes into tropical fruity goodness (yum!). The tail end of the flavour has an refreshing taste with ‘bright’ notes. Seriously, I don’t know what words to use to describe them. There’s a lingering floral aftertaste, just a faint hint of rose, nothing artifical or unpleasent.
This tea gets a solid thumbs up!
