I’m not sure what this smells like but I don’t like it. It’s sort of sweet, sort of sickly and sort of fruity. I can’t say it tastes any better. Squeamish people look away: it almost tastes like what I imagine a gangrenous wound might taste like.
But I can’t say how much of this is the fault of the blend or how much might be personal taste; I’m not a fan of rooibos.
