2 Tasting Notes


Assuming this is the loose leaf Davidson’s rooibos: I may not be brewing it right, but I get little flavor from this. Adding honey definitely enhances the flavors present, but it still seems rather weak.

I’m new to loose leaf teas and this is one of the first I tried (1 lbs = A LOT of tea). I had some trouble at first trying to find the right brewing time/temperature, but I’d say around 5 minutes for the first steep at around 165-170 degrees. If the water is too hot, you’ll damage/burn the leaves. It has a nice, sweet taste to it with a little vegetal flavor, but nothing as strong as green tea. I’ll keep looking for good white teas, but I think this was a good choice to start with.
