Dry, this is a very visually appealing tisane … and it smells incredible. Very fruity with floral notes. It brews to a golden color, and while the aroma softens quite a bit once it’s brewed, I can still smell that lovely fragrance that I noted before it was brewed. Sweet, fruity, and a whisper of floral tones.

The flavor is very pleasant. I like that this is a green rooibos blend, as I prefer green to red rooibos. It makes for a lighter, fresher tasting cup. The fruit flavors are the strongest here, I taste tangy citrus, sweet peach and a hint of apple. The rose notes are softer at the start, but develop by mid-cup.

Overall, a very enjoyable late-night cup.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
