This has been tempting me for a while, even if I really do not trust this brand – it´s actually a supermarket´s own brand, which is not a problem except I do not usually like this supermarket´s own brands. But almond rooibos, pretty packaging and quite affordable I had to try it.

Sadly it´s a no-go for me. The almonds were there, visible but the taste is not noticeable. It tastes mostly of orange peel , too much of orange peel to my taste, and cardamom. Perhaps because so much of this tea is flavourings and other ingredients, the rooibos is not intense and hardy noticeable. But at the dosage i used the cardamom is piquant and almost overpowering, not sure I could dose this differently to bring out the rooibos.

Way too much wrong stuff going on this. For a rooibos with some almond done right (even if it does have hibiscus, in a miraculously subtle ammount) try Yumchaa´s Adventure.
