Sipdown (97)! I’ve been hesitant to try this one because I do not like rooibos. However, I thought after a few other flavored rooibos teas that turned out okay, I could venture into this sample. I can’t remember who sent this one to me, but thanks!
I’m pleasantly surprised that I could not take the rooibos at all. The raspberry note is the most prominent in this cup and it almost has a heavy, syrupy texture to it as well. I can tell that there is another fruity flavor other than raspberry, so I’m guessing that’s the pomegranate? It’s hard to tell. Considering the rooibos base, it’s not so bad. I probably wouldn’t buy this for myself, but it was a pleasant afternoon tea for today!
Edit: As the cup cooled down to lukewarm temps, the rooibos suddenly jumped in and said, “Here I am!” That medicinal taste was not a pleasant surprise. In conclusion, piping hot, this tea is decent. As soon as it cools a bit, my dislike of rooibos takes over and refuses to keep drinking.
