This tea has a nice mix of rooibos and vanilla, with the vanilla flavor not being too strong or commandeering. It is a great late afternoon or evening tea when you do not want or need caffeine.
Flavors: Rooibos, Vanilla

Also got a swap package from the lovely, Rosehips! :D She sent me some teas I’ve been wanting to try for a while, such as this one! :D
I haven’t been able to find this anywhere, other than the seller’s website. So I couldn’t resist the opportunity to try it.
It wasn’t as strong as I hoped it would be, but the vanilla is definitely there. I didn’t think it tasted too artificial, but I really wished that it had been stronger. Then it would have been the perfect vanilla tea before bed!
But since it wasn’t, I’d say it’s an alright tea. Not the best. But I’ll finish the sample. I’m really really glad this was only a sample, and that Rosehips gave me the opportunity to try it! Thanks again! :D
I had this tea last night for vanilla week! Its something another guest bought looking for something without caffeine. It was never opened though so when I unsealed it I got a strong aroma of vanilla. Rooibus is something I tried to like but never really did, in this tea it plays a supporting role to the vanilla but I think I need it stronger. I had 1 bag in 10 oz of water. I’ll try it again with 2 bags before I rate it. It does remind me of a sugar cookie.
This is quite an awesome bagged tea. I love a vanilla rooibos for nighttime comfort, and sometimes day comfort. This is my (current) jam. It’s warm and rich with that slightly earthy rooibos awesomeness. As far as bagged rooibos goes, this is delicious beyond reason.
If I add creamer, this is still great and super-rich. Until I find a better quality option with this great flavor, it’s on the top of my vanilla rooibos list.
I was thinking one day, while on my break at work, “Man! I need some new tea!” Even though my tea cabinet is full of several kinds, and variations of teas.So, I went to Price Cutter, thinking, they’re not gonna have what I want. I was browsing, and a red box caught my eye. I picked it up and looked it over. I put it up to my nose and the aroma had me hooked. I got back to work and opened the box,my mouth starting watering the instant I smelled it again. A coworker asked for a couple of bags, and we would compare tea notes the next day. I eagerly went home, and started the tea pot. The wait was killing me! Finally it had steeped to perfection! I added a couple of teaspoons of sugar, and I was hooked! I now have like 3 boxes of this stuff! I love it as much as I love my chais! Sooooo gooooood!!!
This is a nice, sweet smelling tea. I will drink it at night when my normal caffeine laden breakfast blends just won’t do. I like it with sweetener and a milk (type) product (depends on whether I have lactose free milk in the fridge, or if I have to go with soy).
I have been serving it to my kids since they were about 7 and 9, and they love it as much as they love hot chocolate (I fill the mug 1/2 with tea, and 1/2 with milk and then add a sweetener).
It is not TOO cloying—I don’t like most fruity or other flavored teas—this allows you to sweeten it up or down based on your own personal taste.
