Having a pot of this with the housemate and a side of almond milk rice pudding with cardamom and rose that I made a few nights ago.
Housemate says the dry ingredients smells like a mix of Juicy Fruit gum with peppermint gum. I think it smells like vanilla-peppermint cream with pistachios and rose. The rosehips give the brew an appropriate color for the name. The tea smells fruity with apples and something else I can’t parse…, creamy nougat studded with pistachios and almonds and peppermint. The taste is like a mixture of herbal tea on the sip followed quickly by a very prominent vanilla-honey-caramel nougat flavor, an intense nuttiness of (I can’t shake it!) what smells like rubbery Barbie doll legs, a hint of red rooibos. It finishes mineral and lightly drying along with tangy rosehips. Lingering perfume of sweet apple, bittersweet rose and vanilla-honey nougat, some clean peppermint cooling but overall body warming. Housemate says it tastes kinda marshmallowy like those orange circus candy peanuts.
This tea is really very strange.
