This is the first rooibos tea I’ve tried. My wife is an EMT and a gas station attendant gave her a few packs of it to try (he recommended it). She doesn’t really drink hot teas in the warmer months, so I became the beneficiary of the two sample packs.

I took my first sip, after steeping per the directions for 5 minutes, and it had a familiar smell I couldn’t quite place…but other than that it was like drinking hot water. Went and got the tea bag out of the plastic container I had placed it on and dropped it back in the water.

All of a sudden it just hit me like a ton of bricks. I KNOW what this smells like!! It smells exactly like the old pipe tobacco my dad used to smoke, ACK. Definitely not tasty, and I’m seriously considering this being a drain pour…I can’t do it.

I will try a loose leaf Rooibos one day, after the memory of this swill fades from memory.

Flavors: Tobacco

Boiling 8 min or more 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Quit a bunch of bad habits and replacing them with tea drinking!

My new hobby begins, one box, one filter, or one scoop at a time.
