Raspberry Pecan Rooibos from Zhi Tea

Zhi Tea Raspberry Pecan RooibosI recently coordinated a tea advent calendar swap on a popular knitting website, and this was the first tea I received in my package. What a treat!

A mild, fruity aroma greeted me from the beginning, along with warm, nutty notes a midst a red tea with pecan pieces.

I heated water to 208 degrees and steeped the tea for 7 minutes. While steeping, this tea gave off the most lovely raspberry and pecan aroma.

The liquid was dark amber in color, and I could smell mostly raspberries at this point. The taste was pure raspberry but with an intriguing nutty aftertaste. It was slightly sweet; I did not add sugar, but some might prefer to do so if they like a sweeter tea. No creamer or milk was needed here either (and it isn’t typically used in mild Rooibos teas).

I really enjoyed this new-to-me tea and would definitely consider buying it for myself.

Zhi Tea describes this tea as:

Organic real Texas pecan pieces, organic raspberry extract, and organic/Fair Trade red rooibos. Aromatic, seductive, and rich and flavorful. A healthy treat that is so addicting!

Overall I would describe this tea as a slightly sweet, mild rooibos tea.
