I had high hopes for this one, because the fragrance wafting up from my mug is amazing – it smells like freshly baked muffins. And when I read teataku’s tasting note stating that this tisane reminded her of cucidati (Italian fig cookie) I got really excited because those are favorites of mine.
Unfortunately, this tisane just isn’t working for me. It’s the rooibos. The rooibos just isn’t working for me.
The other flavors ARE there … and this tisane does deliver what it says it will. I can taste the date and the nut and the muffin and even the touch of butter. But the rooibos just isn’t working for me with all these other flavors. Perhaps this would be better if it had an Assam base? I don’t know.
