Recent Tasting Notes
The aroma is a sweet reflection of marzipan, so accurate you can practically taste it. However the taste has more similarity with toasted nuts combined with a slight burnt finish. When milk is added this diminishes a little, allowing the almond notes to become a tad more prominent.
Flavors: Almond, Burnt, Nutty, Toasted
The dry aroma is fruity, yet sharp, with a mingled whiff of aniseed. Once steeped the aroma turns to sweet cinnamon notes and a liquid of deep yellow, whilst the flavour is an elixir of prominent cinnamon and aniseed, with a subtle hay note. This isn’t necessarily the prettiest looking blend and the combination of ingredients is a little unusual, but the notes are warming and tasty, capturing the essence of Christmas well enough. A bit of an oddball, nothing extravagant, but nothing to be overlooked either.

I enjoyed this: Friday mornings. I have a weekly Friday meeting that starts first thing, so I get up extra early. Despite not liking actual coffee, the similarity in essence was the perfect kick in the morning.
Flavors: Coffee, Grass, Nuts, Smoke, Toasted
An incredible spiced smell with deep chocolate notes. The Rooibos element takes a back seat in the flavour, letting the spices take control to envelop you in their warming magic. A credible chai alternative for those wanting to stay caffeine free. Easily enjoyed with or without milk and sugar.
