I’m really liking what Republic of Tea has been doing lately with their new creations and flavor combinations. When I first saw this one on their website, I knew I had to try it. Turns out, everyone else did, too, and I had a hard time finding it in my town. Thank you, Liquor Barn, for your great selection of teas.
This rooibos is sweet (I’m assuming from the beetroot), but it mainly tastes like carrot. There’s a slight orange taste, as though you had cooked carrots with a bit of orange juice in the water. There’s a mild, grassy, rooibos flavor finish. I find that I like the Mango Chili and Plantain Coconut better than this blend, but don’t regret the purchase at all. I’m finding that I’m really enjoying teas made out of the more unusual ingredients here lately. Will have to keep an eye out for more of them.
