I tried this tea again with a longer steep time (~ 1 minute) and less milk (75% water, 25% milk). I’m still getting tree bark, but I think the candy taste is more throat lozenge. …It’s like menthol without the cold effect. I think this might be the note that throws people off, but I’m starting to appreciate it now that I’m able to pick apart the complexity.

…Considering how much I’m enjoying the tree bark taste, I think I may want to research whether poplar and aspen can be used as tea…

Edit: Aspen bark and leaves can be used as a tisane to treat urinary tract infection, and poplar inner bark tea can be used as a sedative/inflammation reducer. It looks like salicin plays a part in these effects.

I was a little surprised to note that the taste of this reminds me of the iced tea you can get in restaurants around here. Not exact but oddly similar.
I steeped for four minutes because this is my first time drinking it. Added some honey after drinking a little, it was good but I like the teas I drink at night to be a little sweeter. I might have this with breakfast tomorrow without anything added.
(Also, I feel kind of awesome having this. Like I’m helping someone out by drinking their tasty tea that they were paid right for. Very cool.)

I am afraid that I am not a big fan of rooibos. This was one of the first I’ve tried, and I have not particularly liked any of them. It may be an excellent rooibos, it’s just not something that appeals to me.

You and me both. Rooibos is horrid stuff. The (so far) sole exception to that for me has been a flavored green rooibos so I’m planning to try a plain green rooibos sometime and see how that is, but yeah. Rooibos = icky.
