Thumbs up!"The taste, admittedly, is not my favorite, and I believe I've had a few other teas which taste similar, but it is by no means bad. I think it's the almond that stands out a bit more than the other flavors, with just a hint of cinnamon."

specialteasrooiboscountrysideWhen I think of the word "countryside", I usually think of rolling hills, sprawling cornfields, and cows (what can I say, I'm from Wisconsin). So, naturally, when I read the name and description of this tea, these were the things that came to mind.

What did come to mind when I drank it was something a little bit different: rolling hills lush with leaves in all of their glorious fall colors. Not so much with the farms and cows, which is probably a good thing. In fact, I think the actual image evoked by the tea fits the idea of "countryside" much better than my original idea.

But, enough rambling, on with the tea! It is a rooibos, and it shows in the unsteeped tea. Gorgeous red roobios tea mixed the various ingredients matches the idea of autumn leaves perfectly. As the tea steeps, it takes on a lovely red-brown color, again fitting the autumn theme nicely. The taste, admittedly, is not my favorite, and I believe I've had a few other teas which taste similar, but it is by no means bad. I think it's the almond that stands out a bit more than the other flavors, with just a hint of cinnamon. Otherwise, the flavors blend very well together, and the rooibos is suited perfectly for the combined flavors, making for a pleasant, relaxing cuppa tea.

Bottom line: It's a very good blend, even if the flavor is not really my kind of thing. If you love autumn and are looking for a good tea for the season, this should definitely go on your must-try list!
