Enjoying a cuppa courtesy of derk, bag-in. It’s been a while since I had straight up, unflavored rooibos. This iteration from Five Mountains is nice and rich, and I’ll concur: almonds and cedar wood.

The canister mentions this is a ‘long cut’ organic rooibos. It’s the best rooibos tea I’ve had. Steeps dark with a rIch, sweet aroma that moves to a full flavor in the mouth. Smooth notes of cedar wood, pipe tobacco, almond and honeyed currant. It doesn’t taste medicinal or boozy like so many others, nor is it too drying – just a bit. If I had realized this was $11 for 15 sachets, I probably wouldn’t have bought it; I thought it was a full canister of loose leaf. Rooibos doesn’t capture me enough to bother paying 75c per cup. Recommended if you’re okay with the price.

Flavors: Almond, Black Currant, Cedar, Honey, Mineral, Smooth, Tobacco

Apparently pricey; but as well apparently very tasty one! I like the visual of the canister, but I wouldn’t pay that much as well. Shame they don’t have it loose.

derk

It is available loose online.

Ah, my fault. I have overseen it. Won’t order though :P and who knows if they even ship overseas.

Interesting! Rooibos is on my list of “I like it, but the cheap stuff tastes about the same as the expensive stuff” varieties. (Chamomile and peppermint fit that qualification, too.)

I drink rooibos as a remedy for tension headaches and not for the flavor as it tastes like decaying shrubbery. I tend to go for vanilla or chai flavored.

Curious. I’ll have to try it next time I get a tension headache.

gmathis: To me there’s a difference. The cheap stuff is terribly drying (rooibos and chamomile) or muddy (peppermint).
