50g package came in my Lucky Bag. I like rooibos and drinking tea at night, so I was happy to see it.

I can understand why some might be put off by the smell – it’s slightly medicinal and artificially berry. Brewed, the rooibos does come through, so this is not a tea for those who dislike it. If you use about 1.5 teaspoons and steep for at least 4 minutes, the berry and honey flavor develops a bit more and is pleasantly sweet.

I don’t think I’d rush to buy this again, but it did the trick.

I’ve just recently discovered the world of loose tea and am really enjoying myself. I’m still in SAMPLE EVERYTHING mode, and likely always will be.

I love green teas, chai, and citrus flavors. I don’t mind hibiscus. I will drink a bitter green tea, but won’t drink bitter black tea. I’m working on figuring out which black teas work for me.

I tend to drink my tea without milk or sugar.

I’m using Steepster’s Cupboard function to actually reflect my current tea stock, otherwise I’d never be able to remember what I already have.
