This is a nice sweet and fun tea. I drank it as “dessert” this evening, and that is kind of what it’s perfect for.

I usually try to avoid bagged tea, but this one intrigued me so I figured I’d give it a try. One bag per 6 ounces of water is recommended, but since I was using a larger mug (around 9-10 ounces of water) I threw two bags in for more flavor. I think one and a half bags would have been sufficient, but two bags was nice and robust.

There was not too much of a medicinal flavor that can sometimes happen with rooibos. Not to mention that, plus the beet bits, gave the tea a lovely deep red color. The added flavoring gave sweetness without tasting too artificial, which is always a gamble. While I drank it plain, adding a touch of milk or cream and sugar would make it pretty decadent.

I love oolongs (especially milk oolongs), floral teas of all kinds, and the well done fruity tea blend or tisane.
