The first thing I noticed about this tea, right when I took it out of the packaging, was its scent. It was robustly rooibos, with a little extra hidden in there. My nose is not so keen, so I can’t fully explain it. I really liked the filterbags the tea comes in. They’re quite interesting, and I would actually prefer this kind to the conventional ones.
The flavor is nice, and the aftertaste even better. It’s warm and soothing, but at the back of the mouth, very cooling at the same time. It makes my mouth feel a bit refreshed. Definitely flowery and woody. I can’t say I’m completely wowed, but it is quite nice and relaxing to drink. I wouldn’t say it’s very sweet on its own (as I didn’t add sugar), but it’s not bitter either, more neutral.
Overall impression: Very woody, flowery taste. Nice scent. Cooling but warm.
Flavors: Flowers, Rooibos, Wet Wood
