Years ago my mom got a tea called Rainbow Rooibos from a place called Green Goddess Herbs in the San Diego Area. We were coming to the end of the tin, so we started searching for replacements. This was the first one we opted to order and try because the dry tea looks identical.
The tea has a nice smell when it was dry, the sweet amaretto smell.
Brewed it is a pretty red-amber color. Taste without milk or honey is a little sweet, but nothing real exciting. It is an okay cup with milk and honey, but nothing I would go out of my way to drink. My mom likes it, which is good because the tea we were trying to replace was her favorite, but I was sad that she mixed the old tea with the new, because the old was a whole lot better. So for me, the search continues.

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 30 sec

I am on a quest to try 175 teas in the next 366 days (yay leap year!) and review them all on steepster as well as in my blog. If you would like to help me out by sending a sample or two, send me a message!

My Ratings:
90-100 My Favorites! Keep in cupboard always.
70-89 Pretty Good! Would not mind drinking, would not mind having
40-69 Various levels of drinkable, would not buy again, but if it was given to me, I’d accept it.
20-39 Might be able to choke it down, many shortcomings, trade it away!
1-19 Gross. Pour it down the sink. Flush it. Give it away. Just get rid of it.
