Ok, this is my first Rooibee Red Tea. I bought a mixed 12pk, mainly for the flavors, but I am starting with the plain unsweet one.

Pros:
*It’s very refreshing, goes down easy. I had to force myself to savor it instead of chug it.
*No calories, sugar, etc, and it’s organic
*The natural sweetness of rooibos, plus the citric acid, makes this just as enjoyable as actual “sweet tea” in my book!

Cons
*The citric acid is a bit strong – this tastes like lemon tea, and seems more acidic as it gets warm
*No iron or vitamin C (or any other nutrients). If I made my own iced plain rooibos w/ lemon, it would be healthier because it would at least have those 2 things…

Verdict: Undecided. I do like it, but expect to like the flavored ones better. I wouldn’t go buy a case of this on its own, but I would rather drink it than water or overly sweet black iced tea. I’m giving it a 55 for now, may go up when I try the second one (I did forget to shake this bottle first, so there was some settling which may have affected the flavor)

Hey there! So glad you gave Rooibee Red Tea a try. Definitely do try some of our flavors. The Watermelon Mint is my personal favorite. In fact, I’m drinking one right now (no lie). All the flavored varieties do have 100% of the daily value of Vitamin C and while they do have sugar, it is organic cane sugar. Red tea is not only naturally caffeine-free, but it is higher in antioxidants than even green tea. We hope you’ll continue to drink Rooibee Red Tea and thank you for taking your first taste!
