I like the fact that even though I steeped it for quite a while, the rooibos didn’t turn woody-tasting. I tried a few sips unadulterated, and while ok, it didn’t knock my socks off. I added 1 tsp of cane sugar, and it helped bring out a few of the flavours and some sweetness. Verdict – very drinkable, but not something I would go out of my way to drink.
I had some left over that I drank cold a few hours later. What a difference. I much prefer this one cold (ironic, as they market it as a tea to help you stay warm) as it had a nice, clean taste to it. Very refreshing and not marzipan tasting.
