A new favorite caffeine-free tea flavor! I keep a list of NM Tea Co. teas I have tried, and prefer to go caffeine-free in the evenings. I've tried about a dozen different herbal and rooibos teas from this company, and Cactus Nectar, based on a free sample amount, is a new favorite, maybe my most favorite in this category. The pineapple, orange and spearmint flavors combine in a delightful fresh flavor. This was my first experience with osmanthus flowers, so I'm not sure exactly what they added to the mix, but reading about this Asian tea ingredient on the internet was fun. The rooibos here is green, perhaps explaining why this tea lacked the earthy flavor of some rooibos teas--an omission that was not missed at all. This tea is a little more pricey than the teas I try to select as regular purchases, but I'm already thinking about how it will be worth the extra cost since it is so delicious.
