I was delightfully surprised by how much I loved this blend! Rooibos is usually something I can take or leave—I’ll take it if there aren’t any good black, white, green or herbal teas around. I definitely didn’t have high expectations for a rooibos that comes in 50-count/container bags. But it had real vanilla pieces, and it smelled amazing, so I had to give it a try.
I never would have thought to pair rooibos and peppermint, but the combination is amazing. The sweet flavors of the orange peel, cinnamon and vanilla come through, too. It’s sweet enough on its own not to need sugar! Each sip ends with a lovely minty finish softened by vanilla. Delicious!
I’ve been drinking it in the mornings and at night. Since it’s caffeine-free, it’s suitable before bed, but the mintiness helps wake me up on a weekend morning, too. Definitely recommended to mint and dessert tea lovers.
