I was a little worried about brewing this single steep package in my KATI tumbler because I thought that the rooibos leaves would fall through the mesh on the strainer, but, surprisingly, it did not.
Prior to infusion, this smells like lime and kiwi fruit, with very faint notes of ginger. After infusing, the liquor has a slight medicinal scent to it … but not so much that it’s off-putting. It almost smells like eucalyptus.
But it doesn’t taste like eucalyptus. The ginger is stronger in the flavor than it is in the dry scent, and while it is quite a dominating flavor, it isn’t completely overpowering the lime and kiwi flavors. I like the way these flavors are working together. The honeybush and rooibos taste nutty and sweet, and provide a nice backdrop.
I like this one.
