48 Tasting Notes
I am not a huge fan of red rooibos, yet, this is one of the better teas. Sweet smell but the mixture of honey and rooibos is creating some odd flavours. I once tried some honey red rooibos tea from South Africa and this far surpasses it because it doesn’t have that cardboard rooibos after taste.
It is an interesting tea because of the chestnut flavour. Too bitter on its own even if I brew for 2.5 mins. With some sugar, it is sweet and slightly bitter. Great aroma.
Smells bad, tastes bad. This is my first Irish breakfast tea and I wonder if they are all like this? I love English Breakfast and don’t mind a stronger tea but the sewage aroma is difficult to stomach.
