Last night I decided to try a cup of Rooibos tea at my local tea shop. (Now, as a caveat, in the past the teas I have bought there have been prepared quite well and appropriately.) I went for vanilla because that is what the proprietress suggested.
And well, I just don't get it.
It was okay. Nicely vanilla. But it tasted, well, bland. Like weak tea. Yet, I don't think it was weak, because the vanilla part wasn't weak.
Just definitely not something I would order again.
So, did I just miss something? Is my palate not sophisticated enough to pick up on the wonders of Rooibos? Was it misbrewed (see caveat, above)?
Or is it just meh? An okay solution for those trying to avoid caffeine?
