The dry tea smells like cucumber – which I think is the dried aloe vera bits talking – but as it steeps it gradually changes to a citrusy scent that made me think Neo Citron a bit.

It’s has a light, slightly herbal flavour with a bit of the cucumbery aloe vera notes (though nowhere near the strength you’d get from Adagio’s White Cucumber – thankfully). There are also traces of citrus fruits and I can even taste what might be kiwi after the tea’s had a chance to cool a touch.

I imagin that this could make a decent iced tea – green rooibos seems to lend itself to that sort of thing. Hot, it makes a light, soothing evening drink that doesn’t blow my mind, but that I still find enjoyable.

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
