My first foray into rooibos.
Smells wonderful, but mostly of cinnamon, ginger, and berries… I don’t know what rooibos smells like and so I couldn’t tell if there was a rooibos aroma hidden under all the heavy spices. Pleasant, fills rooms.
Nice orange red color.
Tastes relatively bland though. No initial flavors hit the tongue, other than a slight vague sweetness, and as you swallow you pick up a hint of pepper (probably from the piquante peppers in it) and tart berry, but not much. A bit astringent, not unpleasantly, leaves mouth just a bit dry, which I like on cold days.
Rather disappointing overall, would not buy again.
