after seeing my actual sample of this, i’d say it is a rooibos before a black tea, which is honestly a little off-putting – i’m not really a fan of rooibos and i can’t imagine rooibos + black + mint being good. but… we’ll see.
i suppose the rooibos is in there to add a touch of natural sweetness, as it DOES smell minty and sweet. surprisingly it’s not overpowering on the first sip. i don’t know that i’d like this one iced – minty iced teas just don’t do it for me, but as a hot tea, it is quite refreshing. the mint lingers and the black tea sort of bullies out the rooibos until the end where there’s just a hint of lingering sweetness.
dang! another winner!! this is going to be an expensive summer for teas! hahah
