MediocreExcellentOutstanding

A strong, Assam-like rooibos, if that's possible. Dry leaf is pleasingly aromatic.

Aroma is rather strong, earthy, and woody, and considerably more peppery and spicy than I am used to for rooibos, less fruity. Rather heavy and thick. Not exactly bitter, but seems to have more bite than a typical rooibos. This is like the "Irish Breakfast" of Rooibos.

The variation in rooibos is usually subtle, sometimes almost undetectable, and this is one of the most unusual samples of rooibos that I've tried yet.

Price is extraordinarily cheap for a fair trade and organic certified rooibos. I think this is quite a steal. I just wish the aroma were more fruity...I like the flavor and mouthfeel of this batch but the aroma is a bit muted. This might be due to improper storage though, I bought this in a co-op where it was stored in glass jars.
