This is a very chocolaty rooibos. I chose this onew tonight because I am avoiding caffeine. I really wanted to brew up some shou in my new teapot but that will have to wait. I’m letting it soak in the tea water overnight to finish seasoning anyway.
This tea falls short of what a really great rooibos should taste like. So far I am only 50/50 with my teas bought from The Pleasures of Tea. They did sell me an incredible gaiwan though. I can’t describe what it is I don’t like about this tea, I just don’t think that much of it. Its not bad enough to throw out, I just would not buy it again. There is somoething slightly off putting about the taste, don’t know what.
I brewed this once in an 18oz teapot with boiling water and 3 tsp leaf for 5 min.
