Red Headed Stranger
Originally By: Willie Nelson
Cover By: Clint Black
Quick Comments about this song…I’m note usually a country music fan but I do like select songs…not that this is really one of them, nor is Clint Black one of the artists I “dig”…only because I saw him LIVE and thought he was incredibly boring. Now…I realize that if there are die-hard Clint Black fans here they will probably trample me for that statement…perhaps he was having an OFF NIGHT or something…but he wasn’t very disconnected with the audience when I saw him and I thought he was incredible boring. However, looking back, Wynona opened that evening and I thought she was excellent! Anyhow…I am choosing this song for this tea because of the RED HEAD connection…I have Red Hair so am interested in Red Headed Pop Culture – haha – and Willie Nelson is a legend in his own right. I wonder if he’s into TEA…since he’s into other herbs!? LOL
Anyhow…on to this actual tea tasting review, eh!?
I also chose this song for this tea/tisane because I was thinking RED and STRANGER…I mean, this is RED…Rooibos…AND it’s a powder or a matcha powder…I’ve had 2 other Rooibos Based Matcha Powders and I have enjoyed both of them. This one is just as good! It’s a plain rooibos base into a powder so there is no flavoring to really comment on other than it DOES smell and taste exactly like Rooibos and what you think it would and should smell and taste like.
Having said that…
The real notable item here is the QUALITY. It’s top-notch as far as Rooibos quality goes…
In matcha form the rooibos is very clean tasting but semi-murky in the water…it looks like a latte, however, and that makes sense!
It’s smooth and sweet and I think it’s very good!
