My friend and I love drinking tea together. While we share similar tastes, we often have differing views on certain blends. I gave her a couple of teas I wasn’t crazy about and she gave me one of these bags to try. In her words, this tea “tastes like dirt. It’s terrible.” Looking at these other reviews, I can see that she’s not alone! The scent is mostly rooibos (not terribly woody in my opinion) with a hint of something fruity (think Creme Brulee from DAVIDsTEA). Nectar is a very appropriate word to describe this scent. As for the taste, the wood notes are most prominent. There is a fruity bit, but it is quickly smothered by the rooibos. I was expecting something far worse, but it’s actually not that bad. The finish is terrible, however. It almost feels like you are swallowing small wood chips (sounds appealing, I know). I’m glad to have tried this tea and I will finish the cup, but won’t purchase in the future.
