This is really much better than I expected it to be. I don’t know really what I expected … I think it’s more of a case of my automatic response when it comes to oxidized rooibos. I always think I’m not going to like a rooibos blend … but more often than not, I end up enjoying the cup.

The woody and nutty flavors of the rooibos come through strong in this blend, but they meld quite nicely with the flavor of juicy orange and cinnamon. I taste a hint of the chili pepper at first, and the flavor seems to develop as I continue to sip. The aftertaste has a slight “burn” sensation on my palate – not really an uncomfortable feeling, but more like that enjoyable sensation you might experience after eating something spicy. (Well, it’s enjoyable for me anyway)

I don’t taste much from the coconut, but there is a slight (very slight) creaminess toward the tail end of the sip that I attribute to the coconut. As I continue to sip, the creaminess builds, but it never becomes a very strong flavor.

Overall, this is really quite an enjoyable tisane: it isn’t overly spicy, but has an interesting balance between spice and sweet. Nice.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.

The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
