The smell of this tea is more appealing than the actual taste of this one so far. I had gotten the tin and there does not appear to be any jelly beans to be found.
“Well, no jellybeans for me! in the bag I bought anyhow. Oh well. I dunno if it'd have made the tea any better. It was so generic. You're basic fruity rooibos. I liked it, but I did not love it....” Read full tasting note

A smile a sip.
One sip of this sweet, rich rooibos blend and you’ll know spring is right around the corner. It could be the sunny taste of pineapple, or the exotic creaminess of coconut. It could be the pretty calendula and cornflower petals. Then again, it might just be the jellybeans. You heard us right, jellybeans – that’s what gives this tea its irresistibly sweet and fruity kick. So why do jellybeans remind us of spring? Because they make us happy. Why else?
Ingredients: Red rooibos, coconut, pineapple, calendula, strawberries, cornflowers, and jelly beans.

My thought process through this tea experience:
That’s a wimpy jelly bean
Surely there’s more than that pathetic little guy in here
Oh! Look at all the jelly beans!
I wonder if I can eat them???
This tea smells like puke!!!! (while steeping)
Hope it tastes better than it smells
Bland smell/no more puke! (after steeping)
Tastes like honey (with two tsp raw honey)
This tea is pretty disappointing. And for anyone interested…yes I ate the jelly beans! :) This tea has no taste to it. I picked this tea to try something different, but I got nothing. No aroma no smell…nothing. The only thing saving this tea is the fact that I have some honey. Wish it would have been better.
Have I mentioned how much I hate rooibos? This particular rooibos tea is neither sweet, nor creamy, as the bag suggests.
As well, I had expected more flavors with jellybeans mixed in, but all I could taste was bland terrible rooibos.
I couldn’t even finish my first and only cup, I had to dump it in the sink.
So, I ordered 25g of this and I also got a small sample with another online order that I made. I decided to try this one at work, so I brought the small sample with me.
This one tastes like Swampwater. When I smelt it in stores, I didn’t even put the two together, but now that I’ve tried it, it is amazingly similar. I love swampwater too, so that’s good. I didn’t end up getting any of the jellybeans in the sample that had, but I’m going to go ahead and buy some from the bulk barn and add them to my tea. I want to know what it tastes like with them. I bet I definitely wouldn’t need to add sugar after those things disolve. haha
Hoping they keep this one around for a while. I might have to order a tin of it at some point.
Loved this seasonal tea. I found that the jellybeans add a different kind of flavour to it. I did steep the jellybeans, instead of eating them, and found that it put just enough sugar in the tea and made it good. Though I did find that the bottom of the cup was not the best cause it had all sunk to the bottom and had gotten cold. But I love the coconut and pineapple taste perfect for spring.
