Sipdown no. 60 for the year 2014. Hey, look what I found in my work stash! A little bag of this! I must have got it as a sample when I ordered from LiberTEAS way back when. A nice little surprise to find it again.
Of course, it is ancient. I can’t believe I didn’t drink it when I first got it. I meant to.
I smelled mostly peach in the little bag, and I also taste mostly peach after steeping. I’m also getting the sort of woodsy green rooibos flavor and a bit of tartness that I think must be the orange peel.
It’s a nice, light fruit flavor without too much rooibosiness. I think the fact that it’s green rooibos probably accounts for how well the light flavor comes through without any dustiness or hamster cage that I sometimes get from red rooibos.
I can only imagine how nice this would have been if I’d had it when I first bought it. Rating based on an extrapolation of how it tastes now (nice despite its age) to what it likely would have tasted like if it was still fresh.
Flavors: Orange Zest, Peach, Wood
