The first thing you notice is that this herbal tea smells amazing; once steeped, it stays very tasty and relaxing. The rooibos – and lack of coconut – make it less sweet than Jessie’s Tea, another lavender tea from DAVIDs, and definitely floral. It took me a while to taste the berries, but it’s hard to ignore the fruity aftertaste once you start noticing it.
Like all my rooibos, I love it very hot, and steeped a long time – to me, as soon as it get a little lukewarm it loses a lot of the flavours, leaving only the sweet rooibos (which isn’t bad in itself, but definitely a little bland). It’s one of my favorite teas to drink at night; I let it steep in my room while I shower, and as a small bonus, the entire room smells heavenly for the whole night.
