This tea had always interested me whenever I saw it at the store and I finally got to try it. The dry leaf is very pretty: little bright petals in a bed of pretty rooibos. The scent was rooibos with a TON of apricots. I didn’t smell a bunch of caramel or honey, but pure apricot fruits. Steeped, the tea smelled equally as fruity. It even retained the juicy character of the apricots. Each sip had a nice balance of apricot and rooibos, and the slightest bit of honey flavor. As much as I wanted to love this tea, I just couldn’t. Something about it didn’t taste RIGHT to me. Maybe I had imagined this tea to be something beyond delicious – I think I wanted apricots dipped in honey & caramel. It’s not a terrible tea, just not as good as I wanted it to be.

Organic and fair trade certified. Loose leaf. Smells lovely from the tin, smells lovely after steeped. Goes down smooth with a perfect rooibos flavour, and a hint of apricot. Love this one. I believe it’s limited edition, so if you want to try it, get it now.

I’m a huge fan of Rooibos tea and was intrigued by this one when I saw it in the store. When I first opened the tin and took a sniff it burned my nose, it has a very strong scent. I had expected this scent to be weaker after it was steeped, but even the steeped tea burned my nose when I tried to smell it. It has a nice deep red color when steeped. It seems to be very dry in my mouth with only a hint of apricot and a slightly sweet ending. Overall, I’m not a fan of this tea at all. It isn’t very pleasant to drink and every time it gets near my nose it burns.

This is a nice rooibos with a nice, not-too-strong apricot flavor and the characteristic body of the rooibos. I like a warm cup of it in the evening to relax.
