I have been thrown into a panic to see that Chilli rooibos was sold as end of line tea! Are you to be stopping this one? It is my absolute favourite tea, which I have been using for years and was so happy when I discovered that you also sold it! It has all the flavours you would expect in a chilli rooibos but yours has an added depth to it. The rose comes through beautifully and the chilli kick right in there to flavour the whole tea which all melds together beautifully. Please don’t stop!
Was not expecting to like this tea at all, but it is delicious! Was in the tea advent calendar. A great find.
What a Surprise
I recently tried this as part of the 2022 Advent Calendar. What a lovely surprise, and an unusual mix of flavours. I think this might be my new favourite! It will definitely be in my next order.
Little stunner - we love it
We've had some great flavoured rooibos teas from Shibui before, but this one raised the bar. Warming chilli and fragrant rose petals - not a combination I knew I needed, but I couldn't be without it now. The rose lightens the tone, taking this out of the realm of earthy-spicy and into new, fragrant territory. (It also makes the room smell amazing.)
Not my favourite
This is a very floral, sweet tasting rooibos that gradually develops a peppery kick. The chili gets stronger over time, eventually overtaking all other flavours if left to steep. As a daily driver, this tea is a mixed bag. When you get a good cup (and the chili and rose flavours mix evenly) this is a marvellous blend. Unfortunately, I have now had too many cups where the ingredients are mixed unevenly, and the rose is so strong (to the point of being nauseating) that it overtakes all other flavours.
