As an avid tea drinker, I've had many chais and a few rooibos that I've enjoyed. However, this tea tasted like a cough drop to me. The smooth, warm rooibos flavor was there but there was no spice to it. I like feeling my strong chais in the back of my throat but this didn't do anything for me. I might try it again with less water, longer brew time, or double the tea but while that may make it less bland, I doubt it will change the cough drop taste. If someone else does not encounter the same familiar flavor I did, perhaps they could find it enjoyable.
