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.
