Thank you again EPI Tea for sending along this little gem for me to sample and review.
Berry Rooibos - #2 of 4
Tea: Berry Rooibos (Rooibos Tisane) - Pyramid Bag
Steep Time: 10 mins (As Recommended)
Water: 6 oz at 208F
Review: I found this cup to be spot on. Just that right amount of berry flavor without the fear of being overly tart. As most of you know I don’t generally put in additional additives into my tea with the obvious exception of chai. Happily, I have made no exception here, keeping in mind I often feel temped to add either raw honey or agave to my rooibos. I only take the leap on those rare occasions where the rooibos blend is far too tart and needs a little something to help soften the blow. Point being, I am very pleased that nor did I take the leap and add sweetener but even more importantly I had no desire. Always a plus if you ask me.
Bottom line, a solid brew. It was playfully fruity and had just the right amount of earthy sweetness with a bit of a sweet sparkle as well. A lovely balanced cup. Had I more to play with I would have certainly made this using the “cold brew method.” Never know I may consider more in the future and if I do I will be sure to let you know how it turns out.

A quick post about an oolong I received through my Steepster Select monthly tea subscription. A solid oolong by Harney & Sons but unfortunately, nothing I feel compelled to keep in my permanent tea cabinet.
