Rooibos was one of the first types of loose leaf tea I tried when I first started getting into tea. It’s often flavored — I’ve tried several flavored rooibos blends here — but thanks to Numi Organic Tea, I’m able to try it all on its own.
Rooibos has a gentle, natural sweetness with hints of vanilla and molasses. On it’s own, it’s a nice robust cup, and it’s smooth and easy to drink with no bitterness. It almost seems wrong to flavor it since it’s great on it’s own, but this would taste really great with a touch of cream. Mmm!
