32 Tasting Notes
Sweet buttery biscuits, I am in love with this stuff. I’ve been waiting over a year to get it (they don’t sell it around here, and I haven’t had the chance to order it online) but I just finally got it last week and its phenomenal. I already love rooibos, but as far as I’m concerned, this just managed to improve on perfection. God-level hot, excellent cold, I’m going to have to buy this stuff in bulk.
I’ve been eying this stuff for a while now and just finally bought it recently, and I was honestly shocked at how good it is. I steep mine for quite a while, until it gets fairly dark, and (to me) there’s no bitterness to it. With a little bit of sugar, this stuff is absolutely excellent, especially when you’re dealing with an annoying scratchy throat. My only issue with it, and this might be my mugs or something, is that it gets cold really freaking fast.
I would’ve never bought this on my own, my boyfriend picked it up for me (because I’m a fiend for anything raspberry or pomegranate, my head just about explodes if they’re both in there together) but its not as bad as I thought it’d be. I’m usually not big on green tea, and reading chamomile there made me even more apprehensive, but its actually halfway decent. Smells amazing, too.
My only real problem with it is that I feel like I’m always putting too much sugar in, it almost always tastes/feels kind of…syrupy? I usually put two spoonfuls of sugar in most of my teas, with this stuff I’m using maybe half a spoon? its odd to me. I ought to try it with honey next time, though.
I adore the tartness of it, but I’ve always really loved tar/sour stuff. And blueberries, for that matter. I love that when I’m brewing this stuff, it smells like a berry-bomb went off or something. I don’t drink it much, it gets a little too sweet way too easily, but I like it a lot. Its great cold, at least to me, as well.
