PARTY IN MY TEA CUP
Tea type: Flavoured Rooibos Brand: Leaves and Water How to prepare it: 3 - 4 minutes, 100 °C ( 212 °F)
At first there is quite a strong balsamic/prickly note, which sometimes can be found in some rooibos tea, wich recalls to pine and euchalipt. Then, sweet hints of fruits - orange - arise both with a spicy background - maybe cinnamon? -.
Sweeter than before, with strong orange notes in first place, while the initial balsamic aroma disappears. At the end, some woody and spicy notes typical of rooibos tea.
Unexpectely smooth and gentle. I would expected a stronger and pricklier taste, but it's really sweet, with sweet orange notes perfectly mixed with that background spicyness - like cinnamon and orange -. At the end, few hints of red fruits, maybe strawberry. It leaves a short and clean aftertaste.
Truly an intersting rooibos tea, with an uncommon flavouring. It loose something in the taste with respect to its scent, but extremely enjoyble, especially during the evening.
My score is : 8.5/10
