My new housemate works at Peet’s Coffee, and they recently bought Mighty Leaf Tea Company. So, he sometimes brings home free tea!
This was his first gift to the house, so it will be the first one I try.
It’s been a while since I have had a rooibos based tea, so I am a bit excited. Although, it is blend with many other flavors, but that’s OK.
The first smell is really good. Very fruity, very tropical. I don’t smell much of the rooibos base, but maybe it will come out in the taste. Smells like a great hot weather, Summer tea.
The flavor confirms that. This will be a great dog days of Summer tea. The tropical fruity overtones dominate the palate, hiding the rooibos base. I would like to get more of that base into the mix, so I will experiment the next time I brew it.
Overall, a very good tea. Just wish it had more rooibos and less fruit.
Flavors: Fruit Punch, Fruity, Tropical
