From the GCTTB. Yet another DT tea that I’ve been meaning to try, I was a touch uncertain of this one given the amount of lavender in it but as I’m still looking to flesh out my caffeine free options it was certainly worth a shot.
The dry tea is filled with lavender and coconut scents, it’s a lovely, soothing combination. There’s also a nice undertone from the honeybush which gives a bit of sweetness without being too heavy. The flavor is very different; creamy and soothing, the lavender gives a nice subtle flavor that in combination with the honeybush ends up tasting a bit like wildflower honey (without being super sweet). The coconut gives an interesting bit of freshness, complementing the honey/lavender combination in a very flavorful way. I actually don’t get too many notes from the rooibos, those that do come through blend well with the rest of the flavor profile.
I really enjoyed this tea, it’s quite different from most other rooibos blends that I’ve tried. I think I’ll end up picking some of this up for myself some time soon.
