This was oddly sweet, and not as woodsy as I’d expect a rooibos to be. Maybe I didn’t steep it long enough (I’m a chronic shaver of steeping times because I just hate the bitterness that comes from oversteeped tea). The smell of the spices was nice, but didn’t particularly remind me of autumn.

Thanks to LiberTea for passing on a sample!

With a rooibos tisane, though, you don’t need to worry about bitterness because it lacks the tannins of a regular tea (tannins is what makes a tea bitter when oversteeped). So as long as there are no tea leaves in the blend, you can steep it longer. :)

Bio

I grew up drinking masala chai and fell into the tea world a couple years ago. Black teas are probably my favorite, with Darjeeling and Earl Grey on the top of the list. Recently green teas and oolongs have been growing on me, and anything with mint or a citrus flavor is good in my book.
