I’ve heard of this tisane few weeks ago. I stumbled upon it last week and purchased 1 Oz, just to give it a try. I’m really not fond of tisanes, but I really can’t drink any C. Sinensis in evening, or I’ll be staying awake for couple more hours than usual. Anyways, this cuppa has cooled enough for sipping, so let’s get to the point.

Liquor reminds me of rich red wine in color, and aroma rising from the cup is somewhat fruity with a dash of honey. Taste itself reminds of rooibos, it has that earthy body and tobacco-y finish. Besides that, it derives from rooibos with some short lasting sweetness culminating to freshness in the end. There’s a certain fruity aroma that lingers about, that I just can’t put my finger on. And as I strain my brain cells to reach for it, it slips away. I don’t want to bother about it right now, I pretty much enjoy this cuppa.
Few sips to finish this one, and I notice that liquor slightly changed color, looking more like Ceylon than rooibos.

To wrap it up, this is pretty neat cuppa, like rooibos on steroids (lol). But seriously, I don’t fancy drinking plain rooibos, only in blends, but I could hang out with this one for quite the time.
