Smooth, rich, and robust. I added one ounce of Silk coconut milk and now it’s just as good as a fancy coffeeshop drink in my opinion. Something about a good vanilla rooibos is so soothing to me. This seems to be good quality. I already like it better than the CS Madagascar Vanilla Rooibos (my previous fave bagged vanilla roobios), and even better, these bags are individually sealed, which should keep it fresher!
Drinking it plain this morning, alongside Pumpkin Spice bars with brown butter frosting. I’m not sure that the vanilla is as strong as in the Celestial Seasonings Madagascar blend after all. It definitely seems to pop with some dairy/substitute, but without it I get just a smooth even blend of rooibos and vanilla — not that that’s a bad thing! The vanilla is just not as in-your-face as it may be in other blends.
Someone recently suggested that rooibos and Irish cream go well together, so I added 1 Tbsp Bailey’s to a small, strong mug of this. I must say, I agree!
