I’m one of the few people on Steepster that enjoy plain-ish rooibos. I do put a little sugar or honey and a splash of milk to make it more tea-like. The slightly tobacco-y vanilla flavor (which I enhanced with a cut up vanilla bean) is a comforting evening cuppa. I always turn to this one when I’m in the mood for a plain cup of tea, but can’t have any because it’s too late in the day.

I almost ordered this in my last MRH order.
I am glad to hear that you like it.
I too enjoy a tea like this in the evening, next order I will have to grab this one up.

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
