The teapees are nice and large with a very see through organza so you can see the quality and ingredients perfectly. It has a sweet and spicy scent with strong cardamom and liquorice notes.

Ingredients: Organic Rooibos, Organic Cassia, Organic Ginger, Organic Cardamom Seeds, Organic Liquorice Root, Organic Pepper, Organic Vanilla.

Steeping instructions: Use one teapee with freshly boiled water for 2-5 minutes.

Sampled with a drop of milk.

Flavour is lightly sweet with medium spice that lingers in the after taste. The cardamom, liquorice and pepper tones are the strongest . I’m very surprised about the Rooibos, it’s so light compared to the strength of the spice that you really don’t taste it’s there. That’s a plus for me because if I’m honest I’m not a huge Rooibos fan. I am a Chai fan and living in Leicester has given me the opportunity to taste many authentic Chai, I am happy to say that this blend compares very well to those. It’s full of flavour from the first to the last sip and it’s vibrancy is beautiful.

I adore this tea. Possibly more than all others. I wasn’t a huge rooibos afficionado when I stumbled upon it in TK Maxx, but it was at a good price considering the rrp and from what I could smell through the box, I already knew I’d like it.

I was wrong. I love it. I add nothing to it. Even the biggest sweet tooth couldn’t possibly need sweeteners of any sort for this! It’s got a rich, smooth and sweet vanilla flavour, and is great at sating my sweet urges!

Will absolutely repurchase.

I bought a box of 80 tea bags of rooibos yesterday as I was looking for just a plain, unflavored rooibos tea. I’m glad that I grabbed this one! The scent of the tea bags is VERY characteristic of rooibos teas: wood, earth, a bit of spice and sweetness. There is also a scent that reminds me of the zoo. I’m not sure I can explain that logic, but it makes me think of animals, dirt, wild plants and grasses. This is a fabulous, basic rooibos. I feel like it offers more than the other one-dimensional red teas out there. I taste wood and a sweetness like caramel or vanilla which fades in and out of the cup. I’m glad that I purchased this brand & look forward to having more mugs!
