I was concerned that this tea would be a bit strong for my tastes but I was very wrong. This herbal blend is sweet, tangy, and spicy all at the same time. It keeps you on your toes and is extremely refreshing. It’s a wonderful pick for an iced tea. The rooibos remains mellow in the background, allowing the various spices and additional flavors to shine through. I brewed mine a bit strong and thought it really helped bring out the full-bodied flavor in this tea. It’s well balanced and smooth, reminding you why Simple Loose Leaf is a tea vendor you can trust.
