Flavored or not, there's a taste to it that I can't get used to - I wouldn't say cough syrup exactly, but certainly not too far off. Next time she has some I'll sneak a bit and try to figure out what aspect it is that I don't like. If I do, I'll post it here.
Maybe it's an acquired taste, not sure. I've tried it close to a dozen times, and it's not getting any better for me.
I HATED the rooibos I got at the grocery store many years ago now. Cough syrup wouldn't be a bad description. Fast forward to 2012, I got to have some while in South Africa and discovered what it's *supposed* to taste like. Now I love it during the evening when I'm not willing to risk the caffeine that comes with oolong. So, where does your roommate get hers from?
