I should preface this with the fact that I’m not the biggest fan of rooibos ever. I mean, it’s okay as far as tea goes, but it’s never going to impress me more than a nice “proper” sort of tea…and I’ve been really spoiled by 52Teas’ Dreamsicle blends (both the darjeeling and the puerh).
With all of that said, though, this isn’t a bad tea. The orange flavouring is a bit reminiscent of orange soda – not exactly true tasting – but it harmonizes well with the rooibos.
It’d feel disingenuous to rate it poorly based on how much I dislike the base tea, so I’ll be rating this one based on what I think a rooibos-liker would think of it. :D
