I noticed the same odd, overwhelming scent that I can’t place with this tea as I did with the Lavender Earl Grey, so I’m going to assume that it’s something that has to do with Epi Tea’s sachets rather than the tea itself.

Unlike the Lavender Earl Grey, that smell is reflected somewhat in the taste. It reminds me of… bad coffee? Yeah, let’s go with that. I feel like that’s due to either how weak the actual rooibos is and/or how little is included in the sample — a combination, most likely. I like to be generous with my rooibos portions, since it’s not a very strong tea unless you steep a lot! But since I could have used less water and probably gotten a better taste, I’m not docking points for that.

I the little bit of berry rooibos I can pick up. The berry-to-rooibos ratio is spot on, and the tanginess of the berries is really nice. It’s just… barely there.
