I would describe this as having a gentle sweet woody flavor. It tasted quite good.

I steeped 1 tsp of the red rooibos in 12 oz. of boiling water for about 15 minutes and it made a fairly strong cup of rooibos.

After I was finished I decided to try and steep another (8 oz.) cup with the same used rooibos. This time I started with the water at only 85 C (182 F) this second cup was not quite as strong but was still strong enough and it tasted even better.

Maybe next time I will try and start with only 1/2 a tsp and see how that works.

I did enjoy this but I liked the green rooibos even better.

Flavors: Sweet, Wood

When I smell the bag of loose tea it smells grassy and also reminds me a bit of green (camellia sinensis) tea. Like the name suggests the dry rooibos is quite green but when it is steeped the tea brews up to be a rose/yellow color. Looking at the used leaves after steeping the tea they still look green.

I used only 1 tsp of the dry rooibos for 12 oz cup of tea and I steeped it for 11 minutes in near boiling water and it turned out to be a good (medium) strength cup of tea.

It tastes a lot like green camellia sinensis tea, in fact the taste is much closer to green camellia sinensis tea than to red rooibos tea.

This is the first green rooibos I have tasted and I really liked it so I plan to make this regularly.

Today has been AWFUL. Rude people, drama with coworkers, phone is ringing off the hook. At least this tea is delicious. A calming, chocolatey, minty-fresh, delicious oasis from the insanity. Prepared and consumed in my “Don’t Tell Me to Keep Calm” mug.

Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Creamy, Mint

drank Chocolate Mint Rooibos by Téga

Oooooooooo damn, this is one delicious tea!

The chocolate is so rich, and then the mint is like a light gauzy shawl wrapped around it. The rooibos is very fine quality and not too aggressive.

The longer it steeps, the better it is! It has a decadent, creamy mouthfeel.

So, so so so so gooooooood…. I am gonna be so sad when this cup is gone. I will definitely make a second.

Once again I’m trying to cut sugar out of my tea drinking experience. It’s really hard! Sugar is one of the toughest addictions to quit you know. Anyway, I drank this tonight without sugar and it’s better than how it tasted last time I tried it sugar-free. I must be getting better. I think rooibos tastes best when you let it steep for a really long time. It has a subtle sweetness to it.

Good luck with the sugar. It’s a tough thing to quit.
