redleafroobiosbourbon.jpgI initially perceived the title as a reference to the flavor of the tea. Bourbon conjures images of hardened gentlemen, cowboys, and wounded soldiers. It promises a kick to the tastebuds followed by a smooth, deep warmth. Based on the fact that this is a tea, one might expect more of the latter and less of the former.

In actuality, the title refers to the geography rather than the adjectives associated with the whiskey. Nonetheless, the aforementioned smooth, deep warmth finds its way into the consumption process. Everything proper about a rooibus is present, from the texture to the flavor to the emotional blanket attached to the gentle swallow. Furthermore, the flavor brings that thick brown wash of an aged liquor with it.

This is a solid choice for rooibus sippers. It may not be the pinnacle of perfection, but it is definitely a solid choice.
