I didn’t steep this right. I added my water and then got distracted by a shiny thing. I seriously need to start using a timer. That said, rooibos is usually pretty forgiving. I’m trying to decide if the rooibos taste is far enough in the background or not for this one, and possibly due to the longer than average steep, I think it may be further up front than I normally care for. I got a little over 25g because I was worried I might not get enough (or any) jellybeans in my bag if I went for a smaller one.
The smell on this one is pure awesomeness, and it looks pretty effing amazing too. The taste seems much, much milder and less sickly candy sweet than you might think by sniffing it and seeing the jellybeans. Again, this could be my faulty brain-dead brewing techniques from this evening.
Like just about all of the rooibos teas from DAVIDs that I have tried (and liked), this tastes juicy and I think it would be great to make iced tea with in the summer. I think I might prefer this over Green and Fruity, but it has been a while since I had that last (been saving it for the summer). I think I might still prefer Orange Blossom to this, or it is a close tie, though my beloved Alpine Punch is the clear rooibos winner.
