Rooibos is not bad as far as tisanes go. This particular one is sweet and comforting with tropical flavors (passion fruit, peach, etc). A perfect evening uplifter.

Strong herbal, sweet, “weird” smell. Surprising bland taste. Very pungent flowery and fruity aftertaste that lasts forever.
The taste is pretty benign, but there’s something about the smell and lingering aftertaste that makes my stomach turn. I think that rooibos just isn’t for me.
This was part of the variety pack in a tin I’d purchased at Nordstrom’s. It brewed up well, but didn’t seem to have much of a scent. I took three sips and had to pour this out. There was a strange taste that I can only say reminded me strongly of the sweetness with the bitter under-flavor you got from cough syrup as a child. I don’t know if it’s the “tropical” flavor or what, but it was horrible.
