Picked this up the other day at my local shop to compare with a previous rooibos blend I’d purchased there and really enjoyed. I’m trying to figure out if I’m just a big rooibos fan or if that blend is what did it for me.
Anyway, this actually isn’t even on their menu. But the unpaid intern (slash bored college student helping out) claimed it was a favorite of hers so I picked up 50g to try.
Smell? Citrus and a hint of cinnamon come through.
Taste? Earthy,not bitter at all….maybe a bit bland really. I was expecting to get popped in the mouth and didn’t. I can taste the orange well but not the other flavors. It’s mellow and easy to drink…it just seems like it’s missing some “pop”. I may ise a bit more then my 1.5tsp next time I make a cup and see if that gives me what I’m looking for.
Still, all in all, not a bad blend. I feel line the almond and cinnamon get lost in the shuffle though. I can certainly drink it though.
