im steeping this now so i will be logging as i go with this tea :)
so this will be my first Rooibos. i got this in the chai sampler 4 pack. in the tin it smells very nice but there was something off about it but not in a bad way it was one of those smells that reminded me of something as a child, and now that i think about it i remember what it was (ill tell you if your interested so those who are not dont have to read it)
i picked this one because i wanted to try something different i had laying around and im making my fiancee a cup of vanilla so i thought id have a vanilla too but not the same.
the color of this tea is so pretty it makes me wish i brewed it in my clear glass mug and not my christmas mug. i did a taste test like i do with all my teas without sugar and it was a very pleasant flavor just not to the sweetness i usually like but i didnt have to add as much to get it to what i like. the liquor smells just like the “leaves” (is Rooibos leaves?)
the flavor is comforting :) id say this was a good decision on my part.

Hmm… It is a plant, so I guess technically yes? Here’s what google has to say:

Funny that I’ve never bothered to look at pictures of rooibos until now.

Also, I’ll bite, what does it remind you of?

lol good to know :P

well my mom would put water cinnamon cloves and nutmeg in a tea kettle and let it simmer untill all that was left was the burnt spices (as a pauperie)so it kind of reminds me of what it would smell like when the water was all gross but smelled nice…lol

Hahaha, don’t worry. I believe that Auggy once likened the smell of a tea to a toilet tank.
