This coughing, it’s getting old. And my Christmas calendar posting system has gone completely out of whack. The 13th is a chai blend which I haven’t even got around to trying yet. Fail. And the post about the 14th is also a day late.

Anyway. December 14th.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen this combination before. I’ve discovered that for me rooibos is best when it’s fruit-flavoured so I had a hard time imagining what a nut-flavoured one would be like. Actually, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a rooibos flavoured with any sort of nut before. I’m sure they exist, but I’ve never had one. I do have an almond flavoured black tea which is quite nice, so I was never completely worried about this one. In fact, I was rather curious.

Therefore, it was my Before Bed Beverage last night (see, at least I drank it on the correct date!). I tried to make sure to pay attention to what it was like so I could write it down but I must say I failed somewhat in that department.

It had a wonderful aroma. Very marcipan-like indeed. I think the scent of the rooibos actually enhanced the whole marcipan idea in it, because it seems so close.

The flavour wasn’t as overwhelmingly sweet as one could fear from such an aroma, but actually on a well-balanced level of nutty. I found that the nutty flavour actually went really well with the rooibos because it didn’t just temper the flavour notes of plain rooibos that I don’t like. It seemed to cover them entirely with nut and take them out of the equation.

So a rooibos which has had all the unpleasant notes stripped out and replaced with lovely almonds? Yes indeed.

I thought this one was wonderful. I could easily see myself buying more of that (once we get the choice of Before Bed Beverage Blends whittled down somewhat. I’m suddenly finding myself with loads. How did that happen…?)

I love almond and rooibos, great combination!

I agree. I hadn’t expected that at all. :)
