If the scent of this rooibos was a perfume, I would wear it constantly.

I bothered to steep this twice for once. I detect a bit more fruit flavor in the second steep, but it could still do with about twenty times more.

Love this, it’s a pretty basic mint tisane but sometimes that’s really all you need. Sometimes I open the bag just to sniff the awesomely powerful minty scent! Today I threw in some lavender, which made it even more delicious.

However, it does occur to me that you could recreate this fairly easily if you garden and/or have access to a store that sells the ingredients.

This one is growing on me — I used to hate it so much I couldn’t finish a cup — but I still can’t say I’m a huge fan. I know rooibos often has what one might call a “woody” taste, but this takes things too far and almost feels like I’m drinking unusually flavorful wood. I think what bugs me the most is the weird underlying sweetness that I assume comes from the stevia and doesn’t suit the rest of the tea at all.

I added some rose petals and a generous amount of honey this time. It was a good choice.
