I picked this up in my first sampler set from Adagio Teas and saved it for last in my sampling. Right off the bat I was a little hesitant due to chamomile, which if I’m being honest I’m not a huge fan of (due to the fact that most blenders over due it). The blend itself looks awesome though. The red rooibos and black tea mixture offers a very unique look while the addition of the chamomile flowers just says “sexy” all over it. I steeped for four minutes as a safety zone, may need to be a little longer. The color of steeped tea is a deep red orange, beautifully classic for those familiar with Rooibos.

Enough about the looks!

This tea is alright. The rooibos is by far the most prominent flavor in this tea. Unfortunately while the orange black tea aspect of the blend desperately desires to be enjoyed by your taste buds, it never fully gets the chance as the chamomile comes in quickly smoothing out the taste for a calming aftertaste. Personally I want this tea to be more dynamic than it actually is, however if you’re a fan of calm chamomile teas this may do it for you. Enjoy.
