From Celestial Seasonings

Rooibos—Afrikaans for “red bush”—is a hardy shrub that grows only in South Africa’s Cederberg mountains. South Africans have been making herbal tea from the foliage of this shrub for generations, and today this “red tea” is enjoyed around the world for both its slightly nutty taste and high antioxidant content. The rich, mellow flavor of rooibos is the perfect foundation for a blend of tropical flavors like coconut, lemongrass and orange. Along with spicy ginger and pink peppercorns, this naturally caffeine free blend is as colorful and alluring as the region that inspired its name.

Ingredients: Organic Fair Trade Certified™ rooibos, organic apples, organic orange peel, organic ginger root, organic lemon grass, organic coconut, organic pink peppercorns, organic cinnamon, organic cardamom, organic cornflower petals, organic currants and natural flavor.

I’ve had it a few times now, and I want to like this tea, but I just don’t. I Should like it – citrus and coconut are favorite flavors of mine, and seem like they would pair nicely with rooibos. I think the problem for me is the spices in this blend. Lemongrass (which I’ve never cared for) , plus ginger and pink peppercorns really make this more like a chai. Citrus chai?! It doesn’t work for me (although it may be good with Thai food).

The citrus dominates, there’s very little coconut taste, and the spices don’t balance well with the rooibos or the citrus. I’m not getting much sweetness from the rooibos either, but didn’t think to add sugar/agave. Verdict: for me citrus + sweet = good, citrus + spice = bad. I’m putting this in my “up for grabs” pile (post coming soon).

I’m not a fan of Rooibos. I usually don’t like citrus in my tea (exception: bergamot). I am particular about how I like my Cinnamon, and I hate cardamom. Never been a fan of lemongrass either.

Having said all that, this tea wasn’t half bad, which is very strange. I don’t see myself buying this myself, but I won’t completely rule it out either. I had a big meal, somewhat greasy, and wanted something refreshing. None of the black or green tea was appealing, and I didn’t really want berry flavored stuff. I don’t particularly like this tea, but it was a very good herbal choice for this afternoon. Thank you, Janefan! It’s always nice to try something new.
