Pulled from TTB 2022, shared by Skysamurai.

I don’t smell lemon here, only mint. After steeping, even that goes away and I’m left with a thin, somewhat sour rooibos. Maybe the sourness is supposed to be the lemon? Not sure, but I don’t think I can finish this one.

Skysamurai’s TTB Thank you!
Actually, today I didn ot wanted to reach the TTB and drink other teas instead. But in the end I had only morning cup and this time it is family pot tea.

Tea #6
Red rooibos combined with lemon and peppermint sounds intriguing. However, when I have opened the pouch, I just saw small pieces of rooibos and peppermint. Nothing much else. Later, some other flecks appeared and I dare to say they were black. Are those promised lemon pieces?

But I have decided to brew it anyway, as I wrote, in a family pot. I was asked for caffeine-free tea as it was already the evening and noone wants to stay awake till midnight as tomorrow is Monday. I get it… although I am not that much sensitive to caffeine at all.

The flavour is pretty good, as I hope a good rooibos base is used. I remember one tea bag with same flavour, minus the lemon and it was so bad. That one was very woody and peppermint was musty and overall it felt very old and dusty.

This one wasn’t like that. The base is almost sweet, and peppermint is very refreshing and fresh. It is not pure menthol as some mints are. Sadly, I do not notice much of lemons. No sourness. No lemon peel note. There is some flavour, that could be from the lemon. But not sure what is it and overall, it is almost non-present. It is noticeable only if I am thinking about it.

So, sadly, it does not live up to its name, The name suggests more lemon… this is not lemon rooibos. At least it isn’t musty and dusty…
