Type: Flavoured Red Rooibos: a mix of red rooibos, rosebuds, safflower petals, peony petals, cherry flavouring, chilli pods and carrot flakes

Dry appearance: a bright colourful melange of orange safflower petals and tan rooibos with pink peony petals for good measure

Infusion – aroma: a powerful wall of aroma hits you as you pour the liquor off the infusion – so cherry, so rose floral, so almondy (though there’s none in the blend). This one begs to be tasted.

Liquor – visual: a deep clear intensely burnt orange liquor colour

Liquor – taste: at first sip on the tongue this one is a pussy cat – so sweet and fruity – but begin to swallow and the chilli explodes; blasting sweet cherry taste before it. This could wake Rip Van Winkle.

Summary: this is a most powerful and unusual drink – anyone who dismisses flavoured rooibos blends as “all tasting the same” will surely change their mind after tasting Rooibos Chilli Cherry

Warming and refreshing

Not normally a Rooibos fan but I like this one. I see some people have complained about the lack of chilliness so I brewed it for 4-5 minutes. Pleasant cherry aroma, clear amber colour, warming chilli burn on the back of my throat afterwards. An excellent winter warmer.


Simply divine

This tea is divine, the cherry flavour goes well with the rooibos and there are chilli to warm you up as well. Amazing.


Sweet cherry but no chilli

This tea was pretty sweet with cherry being the main flavour. The other flavours didn't come through as well as I'd have liked. In particular the chilli didn't come through at all for me, which is a shame as I love hot things.


Promised a lot, delivered little

The smell of cherry was overpowering on opening the bag, when brewed it was all I could really taste. The rooibos did not come to the fore and the chilli did not come through at all. There are many fine ingredients listed on the label but the whole is, unfotunately, less than the sum of its parts.
