Very citronella. I can’t seem to get past the cleaning product aspect of it, especially when it is just freshly steeped.
Then, it begins to smell great. But lemony of the lemongrass variety.
The rooibos calms down the citronella scent and taste as it cools a bit. Cooling a few minutes allows the flavours to mesh. The citronella mellows into lemon. The rooibos provides a bit of substance. The ginger begins to pop.
A pleasant evening tea. Next time I steep it, I’ll pour in the water, steep, and walk away until the lemony beauty begins. This is a tea that does far better after a bit of sitting.
The second steeping is quite good. Still lemony, but it is still the lemongrass lemony, not real lemon lemony.
Flavors: Ginger, Lemon, Lemongrass
