I'm not super crazy about the aroma of this tea, it has that weird turmeric smell. But the smell is very mild and it's really the taste that matters most. I've never had a turmeric tea before, but this one tastes pretty good to me. It is rich and smooth and has a unique flavor from the turmeric. If you've had turmeric before you'd know what flavor I'm talking about. I also taste the rooibos in the tea which is really nice. I was skeptical about turmeric tasting good in a tea but it's actually really good and the flavors are balanced and pleasant. To my surprise this was really good and one of my favorite teas now!

In the roller-coaster experience that is the Numi variety pack, I've hit a deep dip again. At least, unlike some literal roller-coaster riders, I didn't retch.

For the most part, the teas I've tried so far containing turmeric have been underwhelming, at best. This one strikes me as a randomly conceived herbal vector for turmeric delivery -- let's spin that drum, pull out some ping-pong balls with herbs' names on them, and toss 'em in there! -- as if supplying turmeric were the primary mission, all else being of lesser concern.

I do fancy cardamom, cinnamon, and vanilla bean a lot as individual tastes, as well as in most combinations, and can tolerate rooibos and honeybush, especially when well-flavored. Maybe turmeric just isn't a good match for all of the above, because the whole is less appealing than the sum of the parts implies. The dry-bag and wet-bag aromas at least match the flavor, which is not common in my experience; you'll realize most of what you're getting before you take a sip. I didn't find the taste awful, just devoid of much character, as if the ingredients were terms canceling each other out from the opposite side of some herbal-tea algebraic equation. However, the aftertaste lingers in a rather bitter and stale form that grows more moldy by the minute. I drank this rather quickly to avoid giving the aftertaste time to build, then rinsed my mouth afterward.

Addendum: curiously, this was the only tea in the multipack that came in a free-standing pouch, instead of being like each of the others that had bag with string and paper label. As such, it was in a flatter, wider wrapper, positioned off to the side in the box. Did marketing experts suggest to Numi a different packaging for the turmeric-consuming audience?
