Whoa, all these new features to play with! So many teas to add to my cupboard! And right when I don’t have loads of time to devote to all this! I know what I’ll be doing this weekend. In the meantime, have a tea review…

This tea is a really rare beast: a rooibos tea that I can drink happily. I didn’t mind the underlying taste of the rooibos, and that’s pretty much a first. It’s green rooibos, which I hadn’t had before, and perhaps that makes the difference. I liked the fruit flavour a lot. It was almost all in the aroma, but since it was present in the brewed tea and not just the dry leaves I breathed in that scent with every sip and the two blended really nicely in my mouth.

Another find to add to my growing collection of night time teas. Whee!

I pretty much had the same impression of it – a rooibos I like! Yay! It makes me want to try unflavored green rooibos.

I’m on Steepster sensory overload!!!! Glad you liked this one. My Peppermint Rooibos from this morning was/is so good.

drinking this complex tasting liquor with my boyfriend tonight. I love how everything is blended into this inseparable experience of taste and scent that can only be described as Jardin Sauvage. It really plays true to its name; I feel transported into a truely wild/overrun garden. :)

This is a nice, green rooibos. It tastes similar to RoT’s Plantain Coconut Raw Green Bush Tea. Similar but not really. I think it is because of the green rooibos has a starchy but sweet taste to it. I’ve never tried it alone, however. This is tropical in flavor with some mild fruity flavors. It isn’t tart or overly sweet. This has a nice balance. Good tea overall, but not my favorite.

Although this tea is NOT creamy and contains NO vanilla, when freshly brewed it reminds me of a cake fresh from the oven – hot and sweet-smelling! After it has cooled a bit, the various fruity notes gradually stand out. Mango is the dominant flavour (you know, mango as in Body Shop’s mango body wash… this doesn’t mean I don’t like it, though), and the fragrance of orange peels is unmistakable. There’s a bit of lemon too I think. I can’t say much about the green rooibos base because it is very light and the bright fruity flavours have totally stolen the show. If you love fruit juice you are going to love it, but look elsewhere if you are a fan of rooibos!

I was a little apprehensive to try this tea. I saw the word “rooibos” and expected to hate it. But I found this to be a surprisingly pleasant cup of tea!

I can definitely smell the mango and citrus fruit in the brewed cup. It has a lovely sweet undertone I wasn’t expecting. It’s not artificial or overly sugary. It’s quite nice. Maybe the perfect balance of sweetness I’ve ever had in a cup of unsweetened tea!

This was a pleasant surprise! I found this to be a very good, easy-going, light-bodied tea. Now it just needs a more appropriate name than savage garden. I’m thinking: Secret Garden or Mango Paradise. And I bet this would make a pretty awesome iced tea too.

Sample that came with my first ever Lupicia tea newsletter (yay!), and I was happy to try.
Is it weird that the first thing I think of is pineapple upsidedown cake? When, as far as I know, there isn’t any pineapple in it? That’s what I get, something fruity and hot, and the mango really does come through (mango upside down cake?)
I’m not a huge fan of tropical flavors, I must admit, but this is nice. Still, I think this sample will satisfy me.

The flavor of Jardin Sauvage is very zesty and energizing. There was a familiarity to each sip that tantalized my curiosity. I recognized the taste; it was a flavor I’ve encountered before. But what it was, I am not sure. When I asked my brother, he tasted and declared the tea tasted of white/clear gummy bears. He tasted again, and said maybe a lime jello.

I don’t know that either of those is quite what I’m tasting, but it’s definitely a sweeter citrus-like flavor.

I’ve never had green rooibos before, but I really liked this blend and I’m normally not especially fond of red tea. Jardin is extremely refreshing and fun – I love it!

I just got this this past weekend and am currently in love with it. The color, the smell, the taste, everything about it is wonderful. It has enough flavour to stand alone, yet it is mild enough to eat with a meal. I really enjoy the smell that comes off it while brewing. I am having it as an iced tea for lunch and really find it a good way to wind down, having a hot cup before bed.

I don’t have as much to say about this one as I do some teas – I generally don’t like rooibos, and even when I do, it’s not exactly the most complex and nuanced of things. This blend is made with green rooibos, however, which I definitely like a lot more. The green rooibos base provides a subtle, springy, faintly tea-esque base, without the strong rooibos flavor steamrolling everything else – it lets the other components take the lead.

The aroma of this tea, upon opening the tin, is intense, explosively citrusy and fruity, beyond delicious. It’s also beautiful to look at, flecked with blue flower petals and crystals of sweet freeze dried mango. Once brewed, the fruit mellows out over the green rooibos base, but it still pretty much tastes like it smells, just not as strong.

I can tell this would be absolutely stellar with a touch of sugar over ice, but it’s good hot too. It’s a refreshingly bright and fruity spring blend, candy-delicious without tasting like a “flavored tea”, likely due to the actual mango and flower bits. The mango lends it an actual sweetness, due to the fraction of a gram of sugar it likely imparts, and it really makes the difference – this doesn’t need added sugar to be just-right sweet.

This is definitely the best rooibos I’ve had, and by far one of my favorite herbals (rooibos isn’t tea, people). It has a classy, high-quality freshness to it, that signature Lupicia touch. When I want a bright, refreshing, fruity tea, and it’s too late in the day for caffeine, or I’ve already had too much for the day, this hits the spot just right.

Green rooibos is relatively new to me, but I’ve come to the conclusion that I much prefer it to its red counterpart. Given that, I’ve been exploring green rooibos blends lately, and I’ve already found a bunch of enjoyable options – including Jardin Sauvage.

The dry leaf smells very fruity. It’s making me think of orange soda – not the artificial neon kind, but something more along the lines of San Pellegrino Aranciata.

Taste-wise, the green rooibos base is dominant – it has a pleasant sweet flavor that always reminds me of honey whole-wheat pretzels. The fruit flavoring isn’t terribly strong, but it is present. I’m mostly getting citrus, although there’s something else I can’t quite pin down. Someone mentioned dried mango in another review, and I think that might be it. I’m definitely not tasting fresh mango. The flavoring works nicely with the rooibos, I think.

As others have noted, Jardin Sauvage seems like a funny name for such a light, delicate tea. But regardless, this is a really refreshing caffeine-free option. I bet it would be good iced, and I know I’ll enjoy having it in my stash this summer.
