I love vanilla rooibos teas and I enjoy trying out new ones from different brands. There’s something about the woody rooibos and the soft, creamy vanilla that I adore. I realized that I am not the biggest fan of honeybush and so I was pleased to see that this was just a rooibos tea and not a rooibos & honeybush blend. This is a nice and smooth cup. I’m not sure if this particular rooibos is like this on its own or if it’s the addition of the vanilla flavoring that helps make it soft on the tongue.
This is sweet and has a nice vanilla flavor. I wish that there was something more creamy and silky about this cup. It’d be nice to see more complexity in the flavors, but it’s vanilla and rooibos, so I suppose that I can’t expect all that much. It’s a solid cup of vanilla rooibos, but I wish that it had something more.
