My friend and I love drinking tea together. While we share similar tastes, we often have differing views on certain blends. I gave her a couple of teas I wasn’t crazy about and she gave me one of these bags to try. In her words, this tea “tastes like dirt. It’s terrible.” Looking at these other reviews, I can see that she’s not alone! The scent is mostly rooibos (not terribly woody in my opinion) with a hint of something fruity (think Creme Brulee from DAVIDsTEA). Nectar is a very appropriate word to describe this scent. As for the taste, the wood notes are most prominent. There is a fruity bit, but it is quickly smothered by the rooibos. I was expecting something far worse, but it’s actually not that bad. The finish is terrible, however. It almost feels like you are swallowing small wood chips (sounds appealing, I know). I’m glad to have tried this tea and I will finish the cup, but won’t purchase in the future.

I’m not sure what this smells like but I don’t like it. It’s sort of sweet, sort of sickly and sort of fruity. I can’t say it tastes any better. Squeamish people look away: it almost tastes like what I imagine a gangrenous wound might taste like.

But I can’t say how much of this is the fault of the blend or how much might be personal taste; I’m not a fan of rooibos.

Janefan

gangrenous wound, wow… gotta give you props for calling them like you see, er taste, them!

Molly

Lol I like this tea, but it’s interesting seeing everyone else’s review of it! Sorry you felt that bad about it! I had a good laugh at “gangrenous wound” though :) I’m about to go open a bag and see if I can see what you’re talkin’ about!!!

I don’t know what to say about this tea other than that I liked it just fine. I didn’t make it myself. I simply tried it at a tea and coffee shop, so the best brewing and steeping times are still unknown to me. Anyway, I will be purchasing this tea soon and I plan to give it a more thorough evaluation then.

This is one of my favorites and I’ve found that I can usually steep the bag twice and still get a good cup out of the 2nd steep.

Fantastic rooibos! While easy to over steep, this tea has a near perfect balance of hibiscus that leaves a delightful aftertaste. While not a subtle tea, I recommend experiementing with creamer if you’re up for a bolder taste.

It’s really good iced too, BTW. :)

I’m shocked I am the first to log this as I am somewhat new to Might Leaf but – here goes! This smells great. It brews FAST…I was a little worried it was going to be too rooibossy but it’s quite nice. I don’t think of the tropics when I drink it but it’s still pleasant. It’s a bit floral to taste but I wouldn’t have thought about the floral taste if I didn’t read the description first. I’m drinking this hot but think it would be better iced. Still good for a bagged rooibos that isn’t too rooibossy.

Jillian

Actually you really aren’t the first one to log this tea. Everyone else just wrote it as ‘African Nectar’ instead of ‘Organic African Nectar’. XD

TeaEqualsBliss

Ahhh! I wondered!!!! :P Thanks for letting me know…it just didn’t seem right! LOL

Jillian

Well since I drank and logged this tea myself not long ago I knew it wasn’t possibly, LOL! ;)

Okay, this tea is quite mute at some ends but not all for some. The first brew over hot water at 208-210 degrees at ten minutes to fifteen for an extra kick( An experience I have learned drinking rooibos). It tasted quite floral and crisp although the rooibos was found to be lacking apart from its tangyness. A couple mintues into the first brew, the rooibos still did not presently itself much further to my anticipation. Only after when the tea has really cool down to a point being lukewarm is when the rooibos can be tasted but not as much. A good overall, just needs the rooibos to come out a bit:)

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

I was disappointed here. Mighty Leaf can make excellent teas. This one simply seemed to lack any flavor—it was a bit like steeping saw dust. I really prefer bold flavor, so perhaps I’ve missed something here.

I first tried this tea years ago when frequenting coffee shops for their internet access. I remember really liking it. I liked it with cream. I liked it with sugar. I ordered it often. I believe it was my first rooibos. When I saw it in the store recently, I could not resist. Scooped it up, took it home, brewed it, siped it and… huh? I used to like this so much more! It still has that unique blended fruity taste, kind of bubblegum like, that I can’t quite put a good name too, but it is so much less exciting. I’m bothered by the dry feeling left in my mouth after every sip, something I have heard others mention with rooibos. It’s still good a good tea, but it is kind of like a relationship that you try again and it just doesn’t feel right. Not like the first time. Sigh

Love it! I love everything about it, except the price. I can’t track it down outside of a Mighty Leaf sampler pack anywhere other than online, and then the price gets… a tad ridiculous.

I just bought a box today at my local Whole Foods. Maybe try there? I think the price was $8 or $9.

I’ll have to look into that next time I see a Whole Foods! Thanks for the tip. :)

Soft, fruity flavor. I think nectar prescribes this perfectly. The smell is divine though. The hint of hibiscus is quite the nice touch.
