This is beeeeauuuutiful. One of the first rooibos infusions I got from work, the loose tea itself smells like— wait for it— strawberry laces! It’s an amazingly sweet scent, as rooibos takes scents and flavours very well, but of course doesn’t have the same flavour as this incredible first smell.

It’s labelled ‘Strawberry’ but this particular product, I’ve seen, has also been labelled as ‘Strawberries & Cream’ although if there is any creaminess other than the natural rooibos heaviness and body, it’s not getting to me as much as the Vanilla version did. The strawberries complement this in a way I’d never thought possible; very well-rounded, a little dry, completely fresh and fruity and, best of all, naturally sweet; unexpected from a malty rooibos base, to be honest!

One of my favourites, definitely. Always drinking this without milk.
