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.

drank Irish Breakfast by Trader Joe's

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.

Heyes

You mention a sewage aroma, that leads me to wonder if the quality of your water might play a part in your experience with this tea. This isn’t meant as a slam, but I only bring it up because I have had far worse bagged teas (even bagged Irish Breakfast Tea) than Trader Joe’s.

Ha, maybe. This tea was shared at our office ;) But the tea bag itself did smell not so pleasant. I was curious though! :)

Bio

I love all kinds of tea from all around the world. Currently my favourite kinds of tea are pu’er, taiwanese oolong and flavoured tea that tastes great with a splash of milk. I enjoy sharing tea with friends, family and co-workers. I can’t imagine life without tea.
