Steepster Traveling Teabox Tea

I like rooibos, and usually find it a strong woody sweet flavor. This one surprised me by being so meek and mild.

Although I am amused and happy I got to try a tea from Denmark, I won’t be trying to get my hands on this one again.

Post-Steep Additives: none

Rooibos with the ever-so-slight hint of smoke prior to steep. Fairly smooth going down. Pretty average, but not bad. REALLY glad I got to try this one all the way from Denmark!


It’s even a danish company. :)


That’s sooooo cool!!!!
