It's a solid rooibos that isn't very strongly woody (how i usually describe rooibos as tasting). I wouldn't mind in another variety pack but I personally would rather a fruity flavor than floral as flavor in my tea.

Also, I could not taste the hibiscus at all, and I love hibiscus.

Post-Steep Additives: none
