Taster’s Review:

Oh wow!  This Red Maple Spice Tisane from Shanti Tea is seriously YUM!  I didn’t think it would be this good – I tend to be apprehensive when it comes to rooibos blends – but I’m happy to report that this is a very tasty rooibos blend!

That might have a little something to do with the fact that the spice and maple notes dominate and I don’t really taste a strong presence from the rooibos.  But I’m just fine with that.  I do taste very subtle hints of a nutty taste from the rooibos and the flavor unites seamlessly with the maple and spice.

The cardamom and fennel offer a flavor that is warm and comforting.  I taste hints of licorice from the fennel and hints of citrus from the cardamom, a flavor profile that is further accentuated with the addition of orange peels to the mix.  The citrus-y notes are delicate and most noticeable toward the end of the sip.

The maple is sweet and tastes amazing with these other flavors.  Everything is very harmonious.  It is a sweet yet spicy treat that I find very cozy to sip on when it’s cold outside.  I think I prefer this as a hot drink, although it tastes good when it cools too.

A really thoughtfully crafted rooibos tisane.  This is one I’d highly recommend.
