289 Tasting Notes
Dry leaf nose: Refreshing ginger with slight orange notes.
Liquor: Very bright, greenish-gold, clear liquor. Nice ginger aroma.
Flavour: Sweet with ginger and licorice, the green tea tempers the sweetness and adds a note of its own. The orange is present in the cup but not prominent. The peppercorn adds a zest. Rosehips finish the blend with a fruity afternote.
Dry leaf nose: Aromas of fennel and anise, with a light sweetness and a hint of chili.
Liquor: Golden clear.
Flavour: Very sweet and medium bodied. Strong fennel and anise flavour with a sweetness added from the licorice. The chilies make the liquor hot and spicy, especially if you get a whole one in the steep. Very interesting: feels soothing, yet hot on the throat and palate.
Dry Leaf Nose: Sweet cinnamon with a hint of citrus and lightly scented clove.
Liquor: Deep reddish-brown and clear, with a strong aroma of cinnamon.
Flavour: Very sweet, with a bit of spice. The cinnamon notes prevail, with the rooibos smoothing and sweetening the cup. The orange peel adds a refreshing mouthfeel
