This is the tea that made me realize that there was more out there in the world of rooibos than typical red rooibos. There was green rooibos and it was pretty darn good!
Fruity fruity fruity! Just let the scent beat you with mango for a moment, okay? You know you like it. Sweet, super-ripe, almost musky mango that turns into sweet, perfectly ripe mango as the cup cools. Come on, take another sniff. :smack: Mmm, mango.
Sipping though? Ah, that’s a whole different fruit. Sure, sure, there’s some mango in there. But the citrus, yeah, it’s gonna get in a few hits. Sweet, gentle, sweet, fresh and oh yeah, did I mention sweet? Not bergamot or tangerine. Maybe sweet kumquat skin or the mild but sweet Barnfield orange. And not a single hint of nasty, sour wood to be found.
Basically, this is like a ripe tropical fruit salad in a cup. And not even a wooden cup.
