This smells sourly smoky. I was a little afraid to drink it. But while it tastes a bit smoky, it isn’t near as strong as the smell. I did add sugar and I think that helped the bitter smoky become just normal smoky. As it cools a bit the mint taste comes out. Not ever going to be a favorite, but not the punishment I was expecting based on the smell.
Honest to goodness this tea sang to me! I made a cup in my office this morning, and while it was quite, I heard something that sounded like an Indian sitar. I moved closer to the tea, and though still faint, I heard it more loudly! I moved the tea to another room, and still heard it there. I verified with a coworker, and still the sitar. After more experimentation, we verified that it was the mug, not the tea bag. After a few minutes, the song went away.
So, next up, another type of rooibos in the same mug, the same rooibos in another mug, and other combinations to see if I can replicate the music.
What a strange, but fun, start to the work week. Thanks to this Rooibos Vanilla tea!
The strawberry is a bit overpowering. I can taste a little of the green tea in it but barely a hint. I want to taste more of the green and have it be less of a strawberry tea that it is. I want the whole tea to taste like the aftertaste does, which is a nice light strawberry-flavored, instead of the tart taste of just strawberries, which is how everything but the aftertaste tastes.
