Thanks Laurent for this free sample with my last order. I am not a huge rooibos fan, but I am glad Laurent added some rooibos samples to my last order, because I am enjoying them.
This tea smells of rooibos and also of strong sweet mint. Mostly spearmint smelling. The hot tea tastes of light, smooth, sweet rooibos and strong mint. Seems to be a mix of pepper- and spear- mint tasting. Underneath the mint, there is an unsweetened cocoa taste. The rooibos seems to give the tea some sweetness. I do not normally like chocolate teas, but this one seems to be well done. It has a chocolate taste to it but is not trying to mimic chocolate. Like I have found with some of Nina’s other rooibos teas, the taste seems best after it cools a bit, but before it becomes luke-warm.
