Drinking this right now before bed with a chocolate yoghurt! On Monday I’m doing a shop in London (Covent Garden again, yay!) since I happen to be visiting for other reasons, so hopefully I’ll get some new, intriguing flavours to try. For now, an all-time favourite.
First thing I noticed about this before buying it is the distinct scent of strawberry laces from the rooibos itself, before brewing. I kid you not, it smells EXACTLY like strawberry laces sweets. If that’s what you’re riding on then you may be a little disappointed to find that it does not in fact taste as sweet as a strawberry lace, but if you’re like me and are very keen on finding great fruity combos with rooibos, this is one for you.
The rooibos is very malty and somehow that just works perfectly with the strawberry- rather than overpoweringly sweet the strawberry blends into the rooibos and takes the edge off the original pungency that rooibos tends to have, and the tea definitely makes the strawberry sweetness wind down some. And oh, it’s just so fruity! Leaves a strong taste in your mouth after each sip, and just warms you to the core.
