The Rooibos is almost drowned by all the other ingredients in the tea. The spices leave a slight tingly sensation and great after taste. Have you ever opened up a package of loose leaf tea and thought, “Wow, what a weird concoction!” So I went to go look up the ingredients and here is what I found: Red Rooibos, apple bits, cinnamon, ginseng root, bean peels, ginger bits, mistletoe, St. John’s Wort, lemongrass, field eryngo, cardamom, clove, black pepper and lemon peel. Not to mention it has a very unique smell. Not bad, mind you, just very unique.
