Chilli Rooibos Tea
Handle our Chilli Rooibos with care! The chilli highlights are built on a base of classic Rooibos tea and vivid wild cherries, rosebuds, safflower petals, peony petals and carrot flakes. This tea has serious attitude.
To Enjoy: Use 1 tsp per cup, add freshly boiled water and brew for 3-4 mins. We recommend holding off on the milk, but whatever floats your boat.
I tried this one mostly for the uniqueness of it. I guess it intrigued me.
This smells like cherries and chilli! And orange-ish brown color is pretty neat, indeed! I under infused…on purpose because I was a little worried about the Chili. I have had Chili Teas before BUT haven’t had the best luck with them. This one surprised me!
My first impression was that I could taste carrots first with a little bit of chili followed by a lingering cherry. WOW…this one is VERY unusual but oddly pleasant. As it cools I could taste more floral notes at the beginning of the sip and then it morphs into a carrot and cherry combo – not so much chili – but like I said I under infused. I am thinking the chili will get stronger as you infuse but I kind of like it under infused.
