thanks to Nicole for sending me some of this in her stash reduction! Now this is interesting and GOOD. I’ve never seen “leaves” so tiny! They didn’t seem to go through my mesh infuser, even though rooibos usually does. This has an interesting scent I haven’t smelled in a tea before. I really don’t think any tea could be too strong for me. This looks like a cup of coffee almost. I needed something tough to wake me up… I think I was still asleep from that Drink T toffee rooibos from last night! This has a delicious black tea flavor that really lingers. I really really like this!
