Green rooibos is seriously a totally different animal from the red stuff. I wouldn’t cold steep red rooibos on its own if my life depended on it. Green rooibos on the other hand, this makes for an amazing drink!
I bought this to mix with a Teavana tea that needed much more rooibos, but ended up blending it with another so I’ve been too scared to try it on its own. It came up in my randomizer, however, so I figured I’d cold steep a pitcher.
It wasn’t stored in a way it could get a flavor from anything else, so I guess this is just how green rooibos is! There’s honey, it’s a bit fruity, it’s just really good, and there’s no medicinal taste to it. It’s just a bit grassy tasting, as would be expected from its color.
I won’t have any problem finishing off this pitcher (or the rest of my 2oz for that matter)!
