My first challenge for 2010…will I succeed!?
This was too unique and crazy NOT to try!
It’s certainly ORANGE to the nose with a slight peppery aroma. The coloring is somewhere between a light brown, reddish, orange.
I ended up infusing for 7 minutes – they suggested 5…or between 5 and 7…I chose 7.
After infused it still smells like Orange, Pepper, but with a more Rooibos and Floral Scent added in.
I’m slightly afraid.
I can taste the Orange but not as much as I thought I would based on the scent. I can taste the pepper a little at first sip, not so much in the body of the sip, and a little again at the end of the sip. I guess I can ‘get’ the chili part…I can certainly pick out the Rooibos taste. and the cinnamon comes in as an afterthought.
It’s very interesting, indeed!
But…you know what??? I like it! WOW! Just goes to show you…try something different…you might like it!
