183 Tasting Notes
I expected this to be sweeter than rooibos, but instead I got the “woody” and “medicinal” flavors that I’ve always read about in rooibos, but never experienced myself. I’ll give it a few more tries, but I wasn’t thrilled.
I was afraid the taste would be too strong after smelling the dry leaves, but it turned out much smoother and tastier than I expected.
Smells amazing, but I’m not tasting much caramel flavor. (Perhaps I’ve spoiled myself by adding real caramel syrup left over from a baking project to rooibos on several occasions?) It was sweet and lovely, but not noticeable different from vanilla rooibos.
Bought this as a loose-leaf alternative to Celestial Seasonings’ Sleepytime or Tazo’s Calm. It is somewhat similar, but I wasn’t thrilled. Maybe my tastes have changed.
Mixed with Realli Vanilli Rooibos from Herb + Ginger… Smooths it out nicely.
I bought a sample of this to try out as a morning “get psyched!” cup of tea… I very much prefer the red-hot version of cinnamon to the true-to-life type, so this one’s OK in my book.
