Ah I like this! This is one of my first green rooibos blends, and I am very impressed with it. The smell is dead on peaches and cream porridge to me, which I quite like for breakfast!! The scent just makes my mouth water.

The taste is definitely quite a lot of peaches, with a papaya-mango flavoring added in to make it a touch exotic. The rooibos is an excellent base here, not overpowering, just mellow and delicious. I am anxious to add milk and sugar to see if it actually tastes like peaches and cream even more than it does now! The taste is a bit muted compared to the smell, but it is still very good.

Overall, this is going to be a repurchase. I also can’t wait to try this iced, it will be very refreshing in the summer. This maybe have taken the second place spot for favorite rooibos over Jessie’s tea, definitely the best green rooibos I have tried! Love that it’s caffeine free too, I can see this as a morning staple for class.

Hello all, I am an electrical engineer (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it was excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte, or decent decaf haha)

I enjoy a variety of teas – current favorites being ripe and raw pu’erhs, chinese black teas and herbal/green rooibos blends. I also enjoy white, green, and oolong teas, although I tend to drink them more in the warmer months. I have also tried matcha and guayusa, but I don’t drink them too often as I am a bit sensitive to caffeine. As a result I don’t drink black teas as often as I used to, but in moderation I can still enjoy a wide variety of teas.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I have tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.
