This tea is a staple in my cabinet. I started drinking rooibos when I was pregnant with my second child 14 years ago, mostly for the health benefit and lack of caffeine (I'm typically a coffee drinker but didn't indulge when pregnant).
Like good rooibos teas, this is rich and smooth. I love the freshness of the aroma. It's complex and flavorful with a silky mouthfeel. Combined with bergamot for that classic Earl Grey flavor it's bright and refreshing, but the depth of the rooibos gives it a warming balance that makes this cup perfect for any time of day.
I particularly like to drink this late at night before bed when unwinding for the day. I also like to keep my tea bag in the cup to maximize its strength. Being free of tannins, it won't release any bitterness with extended brewing times. It's kind of the equivalent of sipping port at night... well, almost!
