The scent of this tea is a bit more earthy than I would like it to be. It reminds me a little bit of dirt mixed with lemon. The lemon scent isn’t at all sugary like some other lemon rooibos teas. It still seems like it will be tasty — the scent just isn’t my favorite.
Sipping… the rooibos base is nice and smooth. It doesn’t feel like dry splinters in the throat which is always a positive. The lemon is very mellow and soft. It’s a little bit too light for me, but it’s very pleasant. I wish that there was another element here.. maybe something creamy or tart? It just seems like there’s lemon and rooibos and while the two together aren’t terrible, they’re just not special. I think this would be a nice tea to be paired with a dessert, but as a dessert tea by itself, it’s not all that satisfying.
