I’m revisiting this one today and it is yummy. There isn’t a list of ingredients yet as it’s still COMING SOON and yet to be released! :)

BUT…here is what I can say about it from my experiences…

I can see Green Rooibos, some sort of citrus peel or peels, rose, and MISC dried fruits. It smells like Citrus…like Orange, Lemon, Grapefruit all mixed into one. I can also smell something that smells like Apricot and Pineapple, almost…at least that is what it smells like to me.

The color once infused is bright and vibrant. The taste is juicy and candied-like. I can taste orange, maybe apricot, maybe apple, maybe papaya and/or mango or peaches, perhaps!? As well as a few other tastes…it leaves a slight lemon aftertaste and is very nice.

I really think this is great!

Dry, this is a very visually appealing tisane … and it smells incredible. Very fruity with floral notes. It brews to a golden color, and while the aroma softens quite a bit once it’s brewed, I can still smell that lovely fragrance that I noted before it was brewed. Sweet, fruity, and a whisper of floral tones.

The flavor is very pleasant. I like that this is a green rooibos blend, as I prefer green to red rooibos. It makes for a lighter, fresher tasting cup. The fruit flavors are the strongest here, I taste tangy citrus, sweet peach and a hint of apple. The rose notes are softer at the start, but develop by mid-cup.

Overall, a very enjoyable late-night cup.

Ah, this tea smells tasty. The aroma of the dried leaf is very fruity, if also a bit floral. There are some spicy tones as well. It would appear the mixture is composed of rooibos, rose petals, and perhaps some dried citrus, among other things.

For my first infusions, I steeped a teaspoon and a half of this for five minutes in a cup of just-boiled water. The Shanti Tea website does not give many details regarding this tea, but judging by the fact that it has rooibos, I decided on the tea measurement and steep times. The steeped cup smells of sweet fruit, with big hints of apricot and citrus of some sort. The impression of the first sip is…subdued. Quite a bit of lemon and orange flavours, but not a lot else that stands out. More sips bring out the rooibos and mixed fruit flavours. They blend quite well, and the tea makes for a pleasant evening cuppa.

On my personal enjoyment scale, I would rate this tea a 68/100.
