The dry leaves of this smell really lovely- I could instantly detect the notes of peppermint, rooibos, and rose. As stated before, I’m not the biggest drinker of rooibos tea, but I will always try something once.
Steeped, the taste remains very similar to the dry nose scent. The peppermint was much milder than I had expected, so I kind of feel like the title of this tea is misleading. I definitely did not feel like I was drinking a candy cane. Nevertheless, I was impressed with how well the rooibos and peppermint and floral notes blended together. Overall, I wouldn’t buy this for myself personally, but it is a nice tea. Just not a personal “must have.” Thanks to MissB for sending a sample my way.
