2 Tasting Notes
I am not a fan of rooibos, so I was apprehensive about this tea; my partner bought it earlier today, they’re not a fan of rooibos either but was intrigued by the fact its green (unoxidised) rooibos rather than the more common type. Its delicious! My partner said it tasted more like apple than pear, though I think the pear and vanilla are very clear over the malty green rooibos. I added half a teaspoon of Rowse organic clear honey to my second cup which made it slightly more mellow, though I dont think it needs it.
I tried this tea in Tea On The Green in Exeter (UK). The tea was served in a pitcher with a built in infuser, and an accompanying cup. The menu described the tea as having a light jasmine flavour but I found it to be pretty strong and somewhat bitter; I steeped it for about 4 minutes so it may have tasted better if I’d steeped it for a shorter time. I’m not a big fan of jasmine teas, and while this was one of the best I’ve tried I dont think I’ll bother with it again.
