Steeped 10 minutes per instructions.

I was not impressed with the smell of the dry tea. I guess I was expecting it to smell like a graham cracker. The brewed tea smells yummy! It tastes okay. I don’t think rooibos is for me. This is the second one I’ve tried (the first a blend from Persimmon Tree) and I am not very impressed with either.

I can see this possibly working iced with some sugar but fresh-brewed without any sweetener just isn’t doing it for me, which is a shame because I could really use something caffeine free to drink at night. I guess I’ll go back to a cup of regular tea at night, and just hope I can still fall asleep.

Bio

I’m a tea-aholic. I’ve always loved tea. It is soothing and warm and comforting. I always had it when we went out to eat as a child so my first association is with rich and delicious food.

As an adult, I’m learning to enjoy tea on its own merits, and bask in its subtleties and varieties. The ritual of making a cup of tea is instantly relaxing.

I prefer oolong and white teas, followed by greens, and then blacks. For the most part I do not like flavored or blended teas, and I never add sugar or cream to tea from the actual tea plant.

I’m slowly learning to appreciate rooibos blends, which I drink for its anti-inflammatory properties.
