Tasty. Easy to drink. Nothing terribly complex about it, but should bush tea be complex? This has a little bit of sweetness to it. The vanilla is ok. Overall a good tea to have on hand.

This is definitely a good tea to have in your arsenal. It has a mild flavor that doesn’t need any sweetener unless you’re used to that sort of thing (I’m a Paleoist, so my taste buds have adjusted to need less sweet than most peoples). Without sweetener, you can definitely pick up the creamy vanilla at the end of your sip. Delicious. Definite repurchase.
I had a couple of rooibos teas that had turned me off, so I bought this to give it another chance without spending much.
I was surprised by the strong vanilla smell for a supermarket tea. The box does list vanilla bean in the ingredients (another reason I bought it).
I don’t care for it much on it’s own but it’s lovely mixed with other teas. I like to mix it with Adagio’s White Tropics. It’s also great with peppermint tea and some sugar. The vanilla really balances out the mint.
