Rooibos Noel @adagioteas #teaadventcalendar #adventcalendar2021

Today’s tea from my Tea Advent Calendar is Rooibos Noel. I’m not a huge rooibos fan, but other rooibos teas from Adagio have been pretty good, so I’m looking forward to trying this.

The tea contains rooibos tea, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, apple pieces, orange, natural spicy cinnamon flavor, rose petals, natural almond flavor, and natural orange flavor. When I opened the packet, it had a strong cinnamon scent, and reminded me a bit of mulling spices.

I steeped it for 5 minutes in 8 ounces of 212ºF hot water.

Unsweetened, it tasted okay. I could taste the cinnamon, and maybe a bit of the orange, but it also tasted grassy, maybe because of the rooibos. I added sugar, and it improved the flavor—I could taste more of the cinnamon, but I still tasted the grassy aftertaste that I didn’t really like.
