1621 Tasting Notes
I made this cold. I thought it would taste better that way, but it tastes a tad better than hot, but not that much. From the tin, it smells like caramel. When i cold brewed it, It tasted like very sweet, minty, creamy caramel. I didn’t enjoy the creamy caramel part of it so much. It makes me want to gag just a little. I do love how there were bits of candy cane in there though.
I can’t wait until I’m through with this. I hate to have tea go to waste…
Boy am I really milking this one! I have enough for one more serving, and I’m going to be resteeping the leaves I’m sipping up now. I have completely and utterly fallen in love with you, Peppermint Rooibos. I love everything about you! You are so versatile. You love cold and hot. You are still great room temperature. I changed my rating from 92 to 100!
I bought some Peppermint from Adagio in the hopes of recreating this in some way.
This blend, however, has “natural essential oils of bergamot and peppermint” so I’m assuming that enhances the flavors. Anyhow, I have this strange idea about trying to add a dash of MILK to this! I’ll try it on my second steep! >_
I drink this so often! It soothes my throat, especially on a day like this! I mixed a teaspoon of Lemon Grass with a tiny scoop (half a teaspoon) of Rishi’s Peppermint Rooibos. Excellent combo! Well, lemon grass blends so well with a lot of teas and herbals.
I am enjoying the cool feeling in my throat.
I have more to add, but initial impressions:
Smells like cardboard but tastes a lot better than that! By far there are more rooibos than black tea leaves in there. I think thats why I smell the cardboard. Plain rooibos smells like cardboard to me. I added a cube of brown sugar and enjoyed this! Not something I’d reach for often though.
