Has it really been 4 years since I have drank this?
Thanks to Azzrian I was able to have some more! Thanks so much! See other notes :)
YUM! A perfect combo of rooibos and peppermint. The peppermint is pretty overwhelming, but in a good way (if you like peppermint, that is). The rooibos backs up the taste with its full body of earthy goodness. I’m finding ZERO unpleasantries. No sugar needed. This would be great iced…maybe then I’d add a little sweetener. Super fresh tasting and my mouth is all tingly with peppermint cleanness. Lovely fresh aftertaste as well. This would be great to drink after a heavy meal.
A great choice to start my Friday!
I like mint. I like a lot of mint. I think I like mint that may blow other people’s taste buds out.
I like this tea, but I was hoping for more mint, less rooibos. It’s got an earthy backnote to it, and the light, clean note of the peppermint. However, I am enjoying this cuppa, and will be quite happy to polish off this sample from Lena.
What am I doing drinking a blend with both peppermint and rooibos in it? The word “bergamot” drew me in, much like the glittering windows at Tiffany’s did the other day. Also they were out of earl grey and I was desperate. Anyway, peppermint rooibos. Eh. I think the addition of bergamot is a little pointless to be honest – as per usual the peppermint overwhelms and the rooibos gives it that piney rooibos aftertaste. Yep. Regret in a cup.
Boy am I really milking this one! I have enough for one more serving, and I’m going to be resteeping the leaves I’m sipping up now. I have completely and utterly fallen in love with you, Peppermint Rooibos. I love everything about you! You are so versatile. You love cold and hot. You are still great room temperature. I changed my rating from 92 to 100!
I bought some Peppermint from Adagio in the hopes of recreating this in some way.
This blend, however, has “natural essential oils of bergamot and peppermint” so I’m assuming that enhances the flavors. Anyhow, I have this strange idea about trying to add a dash of MILK to this! I’ll try it on my second steep! >_<
LOTS O’ PEPPERMINT! While it’s very refreshing, and would be pleasing in summer or winter, it’s frustrating how teensy the pieces of rooibos and peppermint are – they seem to seep through any sort of straining device into your cup. So long as you can overlook sediment though, this peppermint tisane is a win.
Great alternative to plain old peppermint. The rooibos adds a little more body, without competing. This is perfect when I’m avoiding caffeine but still want to feel refreshed and alert. No need for sugar even. It also tastes similar to Foxtrot, but lacks the sleepyness inducing chamomile element.
I love Rishi Tea’s organic peppermint tea and also its organic rooibos tea so I thought that this would be a perfect blend of the two. However, I was most definitely wrong. The tea doesn’t have a strong enough peppermint flavor and honestly the blend tastes “off” and a bit bland (even the first steep). I will not be drinking this again and I wouldn’t recommend this tea to others. You’re better off making a hot cup of their peppermint tea!
