So – one of the remaining rooibos blends that I got from Angrboda. This one is a little exotic… the leaves themselves are interspersed with many twigs, small berries, and other oddments. Rather reminds me of a forest floor, or possibly the insides of a vacuum cleaner. ;-)
Smell and taste-wise, it’s a bit of a riot. The orange definitely comes through, as does some bite from the pepper/chili, which dominates the aftertaste. Not sure where the rooibos itself has got to, possibly quivering in a corner somewhere.
All in all, it’s interesting, but probably a bit too interesting. Perhaps one or two of the flavours on their own could work well, as it is, it’s a bit overwhelming. Anyway, it’s certainly not boring ;-)
