Tea type: pure green rooibos Brand: Cape and Cape
How to prepare it: 5 minutes, 90°C (195 °F)
Truly gentle. It opens on woody notes - dry shrub -; really uncommon, prickly. It show a sweet background which reminds me yellow fruit, pear in particular. Really sugary. However there’s also a darker sweetness, sometimes bitter, like sour cherries, At the end herbal notes.
Really different than before: now it’s closer to a black tea. Still sugary pear notes and dark sour cherries in the background, with slightly herbal hints.
More consistent to the dry scent: no bitterness, neither tannins. The main flavors is pear - ripe pear -, sweet and sugary. Follow herbal notes. At the end it leaves an enjoyable bitter taste, which reminds me sour cherries rather than tannins.
A complex rooibos, unexpected. It starts from pear and it arrives to sour cherries passing through herbal notes. It’s a not flavored green rooibos, which is really hard to be found: truly a good surprise. 8.5/10
