The taste of this tisane reminds me of warm blueberry pie filling! It is sweet and loaded with blueberry flavor!
For those who may be wondering what the difference is between red rooibos and green: green rooibos is the raw version of rooibos, while red rooibos have been oxidized. Kind of like the difference between black tea and white tea. As far as taste goes, the green rooibos has more of a fruit-like quality to it, while I find that the red rooibos has sort of a nutty/woody kind of taste. I personally prefer the green rooibos, especially for fruit blends such as The S. S. Blueberry.
The green rooibos base provides a very crisp and unmuddled taste to the warm blueberry flavoring. It is sweet and juicy and there is very little tartness to the overall cup (just a bit of tartness at the finish).
I prefer this tisane warm (probably because it tastes more like warm blueberry pie filling when its actually warm). I steep it in my Libre Mug! I put the rooibos directly into the mug before screwing on the filter cap, and I allow the tisane to continue to steep as I sip! The tisane never gets bitter, the flavor just gets better and better!
This is also quite tasty chilled too. This is a tisane that kids would LOVE – and because it’s naturally caffeine free and loaded with antioxidants, it is one that you’ll feel good giving them.
An awesome rooibos blend from Compass Teas!
