It has a coppery red liquor, light aroma, and fairly light taste. The aroma is not unlike the company’s description, like hay or wild dry grasses. The aroma of the liquor is much weaker than the actual leaves, wet or dry, however. The taste is straight and crisp with little to no aftertaste. The flavor is much like hay as well, but not strong, with a slight sweetness and a subtle roasted characteristic. The mouthfeel is smooth with a slight dryness afterwords.

Overall a good quality tea. Honestly, though, I’ve never really noticed a huge difference in any of the rooibos teas I’ve drank.

I definitely recommend drinking this tea cold.

I drink all of my teas cold.

I’ve been a tea drinker since I was a teenager, and have only gotten more addicted to tea as time goes on. I’m currently at a couple of liters a day.

I love all styles of tea, but as I currently live in Japan I’m checking out many of the teas available here; bancha, kukicha, and houjicha to name a few. I’m also a big fan of Assam tea, and almost all herbal teas including rooibos and mate.

My favorite way to brew tea is using a brew device from Taiwan that is marketed in the US under names like IngenuiTEA, and Perfect Teamaker. The device allows ample room for your leaves and makes cleanup quick and easy. I like the brewer so much I’m actually trying to market it in Japan.
