Leaf Type: Rooibos
Where to Buy: Butiki Teas
Ginger Rooibos is a smooth and spicy tisane that originates from South Africa. The light ginger flavor of this tisane finishes sweet and smooth. Rooibos is naturally decaffeinated.
I chose this as an upset stomach remedy this evening, and it seems to be working. And it tastes really good! Much better than that over-the-counter pink stuff, that’s for sure!
The description above suggests that the ginger flavor here is light, and I agree … to a point. The ginger is the dominant flavor in this blend – so in that context, I would say that the flavor of the ginger is strong – but, it isn’t an overwhelmingly potent or peppery ginger. So, I guess I would say that the ginger is light yet prominent.
There is a spicy edge to the ginger, but, it is more of a gentle nudge than a swift kick, if you know what I mean. And it has a very pleasant sweetness to it that is wonderful!
The flavor of the rooibos is not strong, I can taste a subtle nutty taste of the rooibos, but, it’s more of an afterthought than an assertive voice. But, since I’m not particularly fond of the flavor of rooibos, I like that the rooibos is not a forceful presence in this cup.
This is a tea would make a great treat for after a particularly large or spicy meal, because it does have stomach settling properties. It also seems to instill a sense of calm.
A surprisingly delicious rooibos blend!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
