When I smell the bag of loose tea it smells grassy and also reminds me a bit of green (camellia sinensis) tea. Like the name suggests the dry rooibos is quite green but when it is steeped the tea brews up to be a rose/yellow color. Looking at the used leaves after steeping the tea they still look green.
I used only 1 tsp of the dry rooibos for 12 oz cup of tea and I steeped it for 11 minutes in near boiling water and it turned out to be a good (medium) strength cup of tea.
It tastes a lot like green camellia sinensis tea, in fact the taste is much closer to green camellia sinensis tea than to red rooibos tea.
This is the first green rooibos I have tasted and I really liked it so I plan to make this regularly.
