Tea Review: Joulu Rooibos (Forsman Tea)

Joulu Rooibos
Forsman Tea
Type: Flavored Herbal
Origin: Not provided.
Product Description:  The aroma and atmosphere of Christmas.

Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaf blend includes rooibos with orange spice, cinnamon, vanilla, safflower petals, and heather.

The infusion is dark red with a buttery and spicy aroma of citrus, vanilla, cinnamon, and a touch of potpourri.  The taste is smooth and sweet with notes of vanilla and citrus, the light tang of rooibos, a pinch of cinnamon, and a hint of flowers.

Aside from a few of the usual holiday spices, I wasn't sure how this could remind me of Christmas and yet it does.  It smells like spiced pinecones, fruitcake and holiday potpourri.  The first two infusions are pleasantly flavorful and smooth.

This tea was received as a gift from a third party.
