The dry leaf smelled strongly of peppermint, which quite overwhelmed any scent of rooibos that might have existed in the dry leaves. Steeping this with normal rooibos steeping guidelines, the peppermint scent blossomed even further with the addition of the hot water.
This tea steeped a lovely deep red, with the aroma of peppermint dominating its smell, but allowing through a bit of rooibos scent. After my first few sips, I am immediately struck by the fact that it really just tastes like pure peppermint tea, with a slightly mellowed undertone. I do not really taste any rooibos, which I was certainly hoping for. Regardless, it is a good tea, and the flavour is not too strong, but this tea has very little about it that really makes it stand out above other teas.
