I just received my order today, but I couldn’t resist trying just one more of the samples before bed! At first sip I felt a bit of déjà vu. I recently reviewed Aries by Nina’s Paris, and they taste nearly identical, despite the fact that one is rooibos and berries and the other is rooibos and cherry. Yes, I looked it up – cherry is a fruit!
There’s a surprisingly big difference between the dry smell, which is kind of woodsy, and the taste, which dives straight into cream and something fruity and ambiguous. With rooibos I always seem to taste a slight hint of caramel flavoring, but I think that’s just because I’m a little weird!
Overall, this was enjoyable. Like its sister tea, I’m not going to go out of my way for it, but it is a nice change of pace.
