I had three cups of this, and even though the pot went cold after cup 2, I still went for it. I tend to dislike rooibos in its many incarnations, however the mint really mellows it out for me. Not that rooibos isn’t mellow by nature, I just taste a sweet earthiness to it that I find unpleasant without some mint. The chamomile rounds out the entire blend and doesn’t compete with the rooibos for the base, and compliments it rather well.
The scent in the tin is more or less the characteristic apple scent of chamomile and sweet mint with the warmth of the rooibos coming through as well. Perfectly balanced as all things should be! Scent in the cup is more of the same.
All in all, this is certainly a tea I reach for at night, especially when I’m feeling a bit under the weather.
