I definitely had my doubts about this one; it was a free sample with an order, and for the past few months I haven’t really been digging the taste of rooibos. The smell isn’t anything special, either, so I figured this would be just like Adagio’s barely-flavored rooibos sample pack. But… it’s good! It’s really good! The rooibos flavor is for the most part covered up by a really surprising creaminess. I was pretty shocked with the first sip, since it tastes just like someone added a lot of creamer. The almond is there, too, but much more subtly.

This is a nice pick if you, like me, want to love rooibos but aren’t a fan of it without flavoring.
