I was very worried about this tea…its pure Robitussin™ smell when dry in the bag. Luckily the smell doesn’t transfer to the tea (too much). This tea is weird…the tastes don’t make sense to me, but here it is: the brew’s smell is pretty neutral…not much there but the faintest of faint Robitussin. I moved away from the bag on the shelf behind me to see if was affecting me..thats how faint. So, don’t sweat it. The first mouth taste/smell is faintly pine tree and pine sap. yes, really. The mid to finish taste is pine sawdust…like you’ve been out cutting up a pine tree with a chainsaw (yeah, I’ve done that) or your walking through a large lumber warehouse with fresh lumber stacks all around. Just that smell/taste that you get at the roof of the mouth. Completely unexpected. Ultimately the tastes are so faint that they don’t distract you, but they do last awhile.
I think I like it…this will get further study (especially since I have a 100g bag) ;-)

In the bag this tea smells almost identical to robotussin. Weird. Besides that start off the tea steeped shows off one beautiful brown almost red shade. The smell coming from the glass is most definitely that of a rooibos but with that added zing of ginger. The taste follows that of the smell. The rooibos stands out a great deal while the ginger faintly pops up. Which to me is just perfect since I am weary when it comes to anything ginger. Overall, even the smell from the bag, this tea is a wonderful pick-me-up!
