Hi Tea Friends!
What will I be drinking on the 15th day?
All the super powers of matcha BUT with caffeine-free rooibos tea!
Ingredients: Organic Rooibos powder, ground to Japanese Matcha specifications
In raw form this bares a subtle, sweet herbal scent. Noticeable as Rooibos but not thick as I was expecting.
Steeping Parameters: Whisk two scoops with 100ml of 80C water. Top with hot water.
I will be using the mini Matcha whisk that came with the kit.
Once steeped it’s thick with foam and bares a thick, sweet, herbal, pure Rooibos scent. More of what I was expecting.
Flavour isn’t too bad actually, it’s Rooibos sure but not as thick as the scent. It is a little dry and you get a refreshing, clove like after taste. Honestly it’s difficult to describe the details of what Rooibos tastes like. It’s an unusual flavour, herbal in a woody way that’s also sweet and refreshing.
Yeah I think it’s alright; and I’m not a fan of Rooibos per say but it’s easy and pleasant to drink in this light, frothy form. Not as dry as I expected either. I consider it a triumph.
Join me tomorrow for another Matcha sip down.
