When I picked this up fresh, it smelled so wonderfully fruity. In the pouch, I can detect the black currant, pineapple, and a hint of papaya. It changes when you steep it though. In the cup, the scent of rose comes through, the tropical fruits disappear, and the berries dominate. I smell mostly raspberry now, and the black currant is very faint.
Now onto the taste. It’s definitely heavy on the berries. Again, it’s mainly raspberry, however, I can also detect the rose. It’s enjoyable for a rooibos but it’ll take me a while to use up my pouch since I always need to be in the mood for all rooibos in general.
