Macadamia nuts are one of those foods that most people either love or hate. Nut flavors in tea seem to not usually be very popular with the exception of almonds. However, macadamia nut, for those who like the taste, blends wonderfully with rooibos. I have tried this blend from other companies, and that from the Secret Garden Organic Herb Shop does not disappoint! To me, rooibos seems a bit nutty anyway, and this blend presents a good overall taste of macadamia without it being overwhelming. In fact, the rooibos definitely takes a bit greater precedence in the flavor profile, though the drinker is left with a great macadamia nut aftertaste. Throughout, one gets a satisfactory level of natural sweetness.
Five minutes of two teaspoons of leaf in two cups of just-boiled water did not quite make a satisfactorily flavorful brew for my liking. I let the rooibos sit for another couple of minutes, and the result was delicious. I would give this blend an 86/100 on my personal enjoyment scale.
