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.

“I love trading tea and trying new teas. My favourites are oolong (mainly Chinese) and pu’erh.
Will gladly talk all day about tea.”

The above was my bio when I joined five years ago, and I felt it needed to be updated. I still love pu’erh, though I have begun to take preference toward cooked, shou. Oolongs are certainly still a go-to tea for me, but I have expanded my horizons to begin including greens and blacks based upon the weather and how I am feeling.

Still more than glad to talk about tea – anytime, anywhere, anyplace.
Additionally, if fountain pens, books, music, or computers are on the discussion list…

My ratings, this “personal enjoyment scale” about which I talk, are just that – based on how much I enjoyed the tea. I might have enjoyed it immensely, yet do not keep it stocked for various reasons. On the flip side, I have a few teas that are “good” but not “great,” which I keep stocked for various reasons.
