Watermelon and Mint Rooibos Tea

While in South Africa I just had to buy some Rooibos Tea. I was first introduced to Rooibos when I visited there 17 years ago. I have since enjoyed it in many places around the world and of course I always keep some at home.

I was curious to see how much watermelon taste the tea would have and was pleasantly surprised. The watermelon taste is a bit subtle, but is definitely there along with the mint.

Another reason that I like drinking Rooibos tea is that it always brings back memories of my South Africa friends.

Have you ever tried Rooibos tea?
