A few days ago i had my first rooibos experience, it was a good one!
I heard loads off good opinions and health benefits for this rooibos herb/tea from South Africa but i didn’t mind trying it out until now. The dry rooibos looks like very tiny shaved pieces off wood and smells a bit like tabacco. I’m using a pretty large teaspoon for my first few brews and i’m going with a 3min mark for my first cup.
The color off the brew turns out to be a deep golden brown liquor and smells very malty. When i’m tasting this i’m noticing very different taste’s in my mouth. Its soft and strong at the same time. Malty, but not like a black tea… it reminds me off assam but different…
My second cup is almost equal in quality but i steeped it for almost 10min and it didn’t go bitter at all!
Overall i’m finding this a good herbal tea to drink when i’m not in the mooth for a caffeine ritch drink.
