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.

I have become a huge fan of rooibos as of late. I find it extremely comforting. It’s also near impossible to mess up the steeping of it as well, which means that I always know I’m in for a good cup.

Samovar makes one of my absolute favorites called Ocean of Wisdom. I’d recommend trying it out if you’re looking around.

My body is my temple, and tea is the organic and non-toxic cleanser I use to keep things spotless. Wait, this analogy is horrible…
