Sipdown! (18 | 507)
Using two teabags for a 16-ounce mug, and steeping a bit less than last time to try to avoid excessive bitterness. Although this blend has rooibos as well, so it’s quite different from the herbal tisane I tried before.
It’s still fairly strong on the chicory and dandelion root though, and the associated bitterness. It’s fairly pleasant otherwise, with a balanced blend of spices – cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, clove, a bit of pepper maybe. I actually don’t taste a lot of rooibos, which surprises me. There’s a nice caramelized sweetness from the dates. I can’t say that I love the blackberry leaf though, it always has a more artificial-like cloying sweet flavor to me.
So not something I would buy, but a drinkable cuppa. I can see it being nice with milk as well.
