From TeaFrog

An incredible, yet subtle, lime flavour lend this Rooibos Blend knockout power. Lemongrass and Cornflowers combine with the lime flavor to make the tea a visual and olfactory delight. This tea leaves you wanting another cup every time!

Ingredients: Rooibos, Lemongrass, Cornflowers, Flavour

I’ve never tried a fruity rooibos before, but the description of this one made me give it a chance. I wasn’t sure what to think when I smelled it in the bag. I didn’t smell the woodiness of rooibos at all, but I did smell a strong scent that I couldn’t place at first. It finally came to me. It smells like lemon flavoured Halls (the cough drops). I hoped the taste would be mellower than the smell.

When really hot, it did have a strong medicinal taste to it, that thankfully mellowed out a bit when it cooled. Not horrible, but not one I’ll be reaching for anytime soon. I think the added flavouring is just too strong in this, as lemongrass and cornflowers wouldn’t overpower the rooibos the way this is. I’ll put it on the list of teas to try drinking when I have a sore throat.

I thought I had ordered the LOVE rooibos as a sample from Teafrog and got this one instead. Pretty weird. It certainly smelled good in the bag. I think the name Kalahari threw me off for what I expected in a smell and flavour. It was almost like doing a blind test! I kept thinking there was something slightly familiar to Rishi’s Earl Grey Rooibos but not quite. Then I saw lemongrass in the ingredients and that explained that since bergamot and lemongrass are both citrusy. I like infused1’s comment about how this smells and tastes like Hall’s lemon cough drops. I agree. I think a little too much lemon flavour was added on top of the lemongrass. I always like Hall’s lemon cough drops though so I do sort of enjoy the tea. But would I buy it again? Probably not.

Flavors: Lemon Zest
