To be honest I think rooisbos is one of my least favorite tea types; not to say they’re all awful or anything, but I tend to dislike them more than the rest. That being said, I’m not particularly a huge fan of this tea when brewed by itself; somebody had mentioned honeybush giving a fairly soapy aftertaste, and I definitely agree with that. It does, however, serve me very well for mixing! I combine it with some dark spicy chais to sweeten em up!
