Mmm.. I can already tell that this is going to be a good rooibos tea. You know I have a favorite kind of rooibos tea base.. a bit like sweet wood with none of the medicinal scent or flavor. This blend has that delicious base and I can’t wait to drink it! It smells creamy and very much like other creme caramel rooibos blends I’ve had.
Sipping… I don’t taste any eggnog or anything that really resembles eggnog. I don’t even detect the spices. This tea seems to be all about the rooibos with a very generic, sweet finish. I’m a little disappointed that there is no eggnog flavor, but this cup is still very tasty since the rooibos seems to be of great quality and flavor on its own.
Hopefully I’ll figure out a way to enhance the eggnog flavor. I haven’t given up on it yet! Thank you, ToiToi for sharing this tea!
