Tea Sipper sent me a bunch of old herbals from the last round of the Here’s Hoping TTB. This is one of them. This is pretty decent. The rooibos is a little sour and a little smokey, and just a bit astringent. The smoke actually works well with the flavoring, so I like it here even though I don’t always enjoy smokey rooibos. The caramel flavoring doesn’t taste especially accurate – mostly a generic sweetness and a buttery aftertaste. I’ll probably use the rest of this for lattes and/or blending.
Flavors: Butter, Smoke, Sour, Sweet, Wood
