Opened my sample packet of this a couple of nights ago, when I was tired but desparately in need of a last (caffiene free) drink before bed. I’ve not been a huge fan of Adagio’s rooibos blends thus far, but this one actually took me by surprise. Dry, it smells just like I imagined — woodsy, with that metallic tang about it that I so much dislike. I gave it about 3-4 minutes in boiling water, and added milk. I have to say, it wasn’t bad. The milk mellowed out the taste a bit, and I actually ended up liking it more than I suspected I would. It’s not too overpoweringly strong, although it is woodsy in taste. It’s plain and no fuss, but sometimes that’s the best thing. I’m back at work this week, starting my new promotion, so I’ll finish off my sample if I use this as a pre-bedtime drink. Not one I’d repurchase, but worth trying all the same.
