Trying to figure out how to rate this one. Even though I’ve had it twice, I just don’t know where I stand on it. I like the flavorings, but that stupid rooibos is throwing me off. This time I’ve gone a little heavy on the not-leaf, made a larger cup, steeped it at boiling and added no sugar.
Yeah, all I really get out of this is sweet, rich rooibos. If I slurp, I get a weird pear thing – canned pear (which I love) and rooibos (not so much) – which almost works but ends up being too rooibos for me. The caramel isn’t overly strong for me but I think that’s because the rooibos is so strong.
I’ve finally made a decision for this one. Ultimately I think this one is really just for those that like rooibos, which just isn’t me. That being said, it’s actually pretty good for being so obviously rooibos. But I’m still going to be the lone voice with a not-that-green number. Ah well.
