Handle our Chilli Rooibos with care! The chilli highlights are built on a base of classic Rooibos tea and vivid wild cherries, rosebuds, safflower petals, peony petals and carrot flakes. This tea has serious attitude.

I got some of this from TeaEqualsBliss a long while back. It was such a generous package I’m still trying to finish it up. :) This one was intimidating for me. Chilli cherry rooibos? How crazy is that? I don’t even like cherry flavored things. They either taste like chapstick or cough syrup. Usually. But I’m pretty low and non-caffeinated teas so I thought I’d finally brave this tea.

Gotta say, I’m not too happy with this. I enjoy spicy foods and chili, but I don’t like it in this. Plus the cherry tastes like chapstick. The is pretty pleasing for a rooibos. It’s a nice smooth base for taking on flavors. I’m going to try and finish this mug, but I’m not sure I’ll be able to. I just don’t want my tea to be so spicy…

I’m not going to lie…this one freaks me out on so many levels!

BUT…here-goes!

This smells like cherries and chilli!

The orange-ish brown color is neat tho!

Now for the taste…I under infused…
I taste carrots first with a little bit of chili followed by a lingering cherry. WOW…this one is VERY unusual but oddly pleasant. As it cools I can taste more floral notes at the beginning of the sip an then it morphs into a carrot and cherry combo – not so much chili – but like I said I under infused. I am thinking the chili will get stronger as you infuse but I kind of like it under infused as is. Not bad. Extra points for surprising me so!

This is quite yummy. Dry, it smells like cherry and spicy chili with a faint woody tone from the rooibos. Brewed, I can still smell the notes of the cherry and chili and rooibos, but they have become more “meshed” together into a unified scent and it is difficult to pick out the individual fragrances.

The beginning of the sip starts out sweet with a carrot-y note. The carrot is so slight that I can only taste it just at the start of the sip, before any of the other flavors have a chance to develop. Once the cherry hits the palate, the carrot disappears. The cherry is sweet and delicious, and lingers throughout the sip, from just after the start to well into the aftertaste. The chili weaves itself in and out, leaving a slight “burn” type of feel on the back of the tongue. This burning sensation lasts well into the aftertaste also. It isn’t an unpleasant burn, it’s a rather intriguing one. The contrasts between sweet and spicy are very beautiful in this blend.

Even though I could smell the rooibos, I can’t really taste much of the rooibos. I’m just fine with that, though!
