My green rooibos cherry has been broken. ;-)
I love the aroma when you open the package, peaches, mangoes, and a hint of papaya. The dry mix is beautiful! You can see the flower petals and the chunks of fruit. Like a potpourri trail mix!
The tea brews up light, like an oolong, but with a reddish tint to it. Smells like the dry tea. Very fruity.
The taste is fantastic! Rooibos-y, fruity, it does remind me of tropical days, and summery weather. Sweet, but not too sweet. Almost juicy tasting. I don’t really taste the flower petals, but really I’m not sure what marigold tastes like, so maybe I just can’t identify it here. It’s yummy hot and cold! This will be a good one for the warmer days ahead poured over ice. Perhaps a little rum or something else sweet and alcoholic to mix in? Mmm, perhaps….
