Like someone below, I was surprised by the deep color of the initial steeping; it looks more like a black tea after steeping than a typical red rooibos. But it tastes delicious, smells wonderful, and is an easy tea for a newbie to rooibos. My first vanilla rooibos was the RoT Good Hope Vanilla, which I also liked a lot. But I think that this is a bit better: it does well with 2 or 3 steepings, it’s rich without being bitter, and it has a creamy quality that I really enjoy. My only complaint is that the “chips” leave a lot of debris in the cup, which cuts the beauty.

My sister doesn’t like tea much, and she commented that it tasted slightly chocolate-y to her (I think people associate vanilla and chocolate a lot).

This is available on Adagio.com and also in the Fresh Market Stores, which is where I got my can. Good stuff!

Well, I hardly ever have rooibos (like the last time was probably 5 years ago when I was rummaging through my mom’s tea cabinet and found some random redbush tea), but this tea came as a surprise sample the last time I ordered from Adagio. Although it is different, I think I like it. It is pretty nutty and while the vanilla smell is overpowering while steeping, it mellows out nicely in the cup. I might look into these a little more to find some nice late night drinks.

Rich flavors, big body, big aroma. Definitely recommend this one.

One word: rich. Rich rooibos and rich vanilla make me feel the same. Easy, too: the only way to mess up this cup is to understeep, which (for people like me who forget that their tea is steeping) is a definite plus.

This tastes exactly as advertised. The vanilla isn’t my favorite but if I’m sure I’ll make it through the sample just fine.

I bought this tea to make tisane at home for my girlfriend. It is pretty good for a flavored tea. I would recommend it by itself only if you know how to make your own blends at home. (Chamomile, Mint, Cinnamon, etc. are some of the flavors you can play with.)

This is one of my favorite teas! It’s so versatile! I love to drink it by itself, with and without cream and sugar. I also love to mix it with other teas! I particularly like mixing it with some masala chai, but it’s also good with herbal berry “teas”.

I personally like the taste of Rooibos, and I felt that the vanilla overpowered the rooibos taste. Overall it was a good cup of tea, but could have been better.

You definitely taste the vanilla, but it’s not overpowering. It’s very smooth and creamy. I highly recommend this one. I served this at a tea party this past Saturday along with two other teas. Over 100 ladies in attendance; and this was the favorite.

To enjoy drinking this tea, attention to preparation is key. I recommend using a very fine mesh infuser or a good quality fill-your-own tea bag – the rooibos pieces are so tiny compared to your typical loose tea. That said, I prepare this by filling a mesh tea ball halfway, then pouring 180-degree water over the tea ball, no steeping.

This tea has a very nice spicy flavor, wonderfully smoothed by the vanilla. Prepared with no steeping as I do, the flavor is still very full, rich, and satisfying. Would go great with some vanilla ice-cream or light cookies. Heck, even something with a stronger flavor like ginger bread would work, but gingersnaps would totally outpower it. Must be time for some dessert.

That said, that it’s a great tea and I need a better infuser to prepare it properly, I do have a slight allergic reaction to it – my lower lip puffs up immediately after the first sip. Nothing to worry about, but something I’ll keep in mind if I have a presentation to give within an hour or so after drinking some of this.
