9 Tasting Notes
You can’t expect much from a gift shop tea, and it’s clearly not for people who are used to tea. Blended with ginger, apricot and other fruits, the aroma is spectacular but the flavor is dull and confusing. Bitter tasting for a long steep,and not a very pleasant tea in general.
I don’t really get any medicinal flavor from this tea, however it is herbal so it would make sense why some say this. The berry flavor and aroma is very slight but enjoyable and the rooibos itself isn’t half bad. You really have to steep it for a while (10 mins or so) to get a real, bold flavor out of it. Aside from that, it tastes great mixing with lemonade, adding some sugar and milk or blending with black tea.
