11 Tasting Notes
Very strong hazelnut scent on the loose leafs, with a very slight note of something almost medicinal smelling. Some of the notes listed by other drinkers include cedar, that seems to be it. I love the hazelnut flavor, but the cedary-ness is unpleasant. Kinda reminds me of the way paint thinner can smell sweet/floral sometimes. I do like honeybush better than rooibos, so I will keep playing with the steep or other flavors.
Flavors: Cedar, Nutty
Tea has a strong coconut scent before brewing, with hints of jasmine. Too floral for my taste, but while brewing it smelled more complex and the black tea came through. Tea is pale golden and still has a strong creamy coconut scent. Flavor is light but full bodied.
Flavors: Coconut, Floral
Wonderful pick-me-up with a splash of milk. Brewed the lazy way with 1 tsp (not weighted) of tea in a basket right in my m-f-teatime mug. Lots of bits left in the cup, paper filter would be been better. There is some astringency that builds up but it is tolerable.
