On The Fourth Day of Christmas, Della Terra Teas sent me This Tea!
And I was surprised at how much I liked it. Rooibos is generally not a favorite tisane base of mine. I like it alright, I don’t usually have a great appreciation for it plain, but if it’s organic, I don’t mind it too much plain. So there are a lot of exceptions to my “rule” of not liking rooibos. I guess I shouldn’t say I dislike it, but say instead that it’s not at the top of my list of favorites.
But this is actually really tasty. The cinnamon is strong. There isn’t a whole lot of obvious rooibos flavor to this (which suits me just fine), just cinnamon and a warm, nutty, sweet mid-note. I realize that the nutty/earthy notes come from the rooibos, but, it doesn’t really taste so much like rooibos that it’s an obvious thing.
I like this one. A good winter-y beverage, warms me up!
