In the dry tea, I see caramel bits and yellow petals, and the aroma is wonderful, like sweet, milky mocha latte. Boiling water, 5 min, gives a clear, rosy rooibos-red liquor. I added sweetener, but no milk. The flavor seems to differ from coffee mostly in a kind of tanginess, probably from the rooibos, and I’d bet that milk (next time) would mask that. A delicious drink!
