I like it. The vanilla comes across a bit strong and drowns out the rooibos a little, but the key word there is ‘little’, with some other vanilla rooibos tisanes I might as well have drunk vanilla extract and had done with it. It definitely one for when I fancy something sweet, and I’d definitely reach for it over the spendy teapigs rooibos blends.
When Mom first brought this tea home, I thought “these flavour combinations can’t work.” Then I tried a mug, with a drizzle of honey. Oh, it works. (“It’s twue!”) It hasd a great smell, a lively colour and goes well with food or just by itself. A nice tea to drink while reading.
This is one of my Mom’s fave teas. When I first tried it with real honey as a sweetener, I thought it had a strange artificial-sweetener-like aftertaste. But a couple of nights ago I had it with brown sugar and steeped in a larger-than-usual type mug. Wow. What a difference! Much nicer than CS’s regular chamomile.
Not really a fan of the scent of this as everything about smells fake and phony. I’m steeping now…let’s see what this is all about!? Never tried it before but thought I would pick up while ransacking the local herb store for a bunch of boxes of candy cane lane! LOL
OH WOW! I’m not sure about this! It’s nutty, and vanilla, and cinnamon…but they aren’t playing nice – at least not with me. The Cinnamon is more powerful than the other flavors. It’s not sweet at all…
I will finish the cup but I will not buy again…don’t think it’s for me.
Bright side…at least I am not dumping it down the drain…
This is an herbal tea with lemon. Since I am still suffering the cough/sore throat affliction I figured lemon tea might help. I brought the sample (3 bags) to work to share a pot with a co-worker. We brewed two bags hot with no sweetener in a larger (32 ounces I believe) pot at work. The first cup I had after it steeped for about five minutes. This was a dark amber honey color. The lemon flavor was mild, but enjoyable. I had the second cup after about 20 minutes. The color was now a deeper amber almost red color. The lemon flavor was much more powerful and had a slight bitter aftertaste.
The two cups did seem to help my throat, but again that could have been the fact that it was warm soothing liquid. Overall a tasty tea, but I would probably enjoy it more in the summer months when I feel better and just want to relax with some tea.
I am going to use up the rest of this (about 10-12 bags) to try to make Thai Iced Tea for a potluck tonight, using this recipe as a guide: http://www.arborteas.com/teablog/tea-preparation/how-to-make-thai-tea-aka-thai-iced-tea-a-thai-tea-recipe-from-arbor-teas/
Will report on the results. Wish me luck!
