I must admit that I was nervous to try this tea. I opened up the pouch and found that there were large pieces of cinnamon, small beads of pepper and very little rooibos! I don’t like spicy or peppery teas in the slightest.. but this tea intrigued me. The smell is definitely of spices, cinnamon and a hint of sweetness.. similar to a cinnamon bun.
The taste is a bit mild compared to the smell. I don’t taste rooibos or cocoa/chocolate. It makes my tongue and throat tingle. The flavor is really just cinnamon and spices with an odd sweetness in the background. This is too peppery/spicy for me. I won’t be buying this.
