Leia happens to be my favorite character! Strong and feisty, not whiny or reliant on men like most female characters. This blend smells quite feisty too! It reminds me of ginger ale, but with a bit of orange and vanilla added in. I overleafed a bit, as I pretty much always do with rooibos blends. Steeped 5 minutes!
Brewed, it smells quite gingery! There’s that orange fruitiness there too. I didn’t expect to like this tea much, not being a huge fan of ginger. Luckily the ginger is much milder than I expected, though it is still the main flavor. The sweet vanilla and fruit round out the spiciness quite nicely, and the orange just adds an extra element and melds well. There is a definite peach aftertaste, and the ginger lingers at the back of the throat, warming and feeling a bit odd. I drank this with a half teaspoon of sugar and found it quite nice actually. Didn’t taste black tea or rooibos at all though! I would consider this a good evening option since there is very little black tea in it.
