It tastes like exactly what it is – rooibos with almond flavoring and sugar (in the form of candy hearts). I haven’t had rooibos in a while and I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with the stuff. Can’t really decide how I feel about this one personally…

On a more objective note, it brews a dark red-orange like all good rooibos should, and the almond & sugar are strongly present, followed by the more earthy sweetness of the rooibos. Adding any more sugar to this after brewing would be a very bad idea, I think, as it is already about as sweet as a southern sweet tea.

I do think this blend would make a nice romantic gift for valentine’s day or otherwise, since it is red and has little pink sugar hearts in it. I also think the sweetness of this blend would make it a good dessert tea, esp. for evenings since rooibos is caffeine free (as long as you don’t get a sugar rush!).

halfway through my cup and I’m dumping it out – it’s just too sweet for first thing in the morning!
