Three simple components to this tea: rooibos, coconut and almond and they are perfection. The balance of each is just right! Although the package says there are rose blossoms, they are purely decorative because there aren’t enough in the loose-leaf tea to add any flavour.
The loose tea smells very sweet, almost syrupy but don’t let that put you off. Once brewed this tea is nutty, smooth and delicious. The colour is a vibrant brick red and the brew is actually a bit cloudy, which I attribute to the coconut and almond oils.
Be sure to give your pot and strainer a good wash with soap afterwards! I left this tea in a vacuum flask once and the oils went rancid – it was not a fun task to clean afterwards.
I believe 80g is the smallest bag that Nikaido sells.
