From Numi Organic Tea

Grown in the high desert regions of the Cederberg Mountains, the shoots of Rooibos have been hand gathered by South Africans for generations. It is prepared like a traditional tea, undergoing meticulous drying (oxidation) and cutting. Organic Red Mellow Bush has an earthy vanilla taste and pleasing orange color with hints of autumn straw. With an anti-oxidant level comparable to green tea, Rooibos has no caffeine, is rich in minerals, very low in tannin, and is relaxing to the nerves. No wonder they call it the miracle tea. Discover the wonders of Rooibos!

Well, as soon as I poured the water on this one I knew there had to be some vanilla flavoring in there, because for whatever reason, teas with vanilla always seem to stink during brewing. At least to me. However, they usually taste pretty darn good, and this was no exception. I liked this tea as well as I’ve liked other red teas. Quite nice when you want an herbal with a little more flavor.

Received a box of this as a gift — I normally can’t stand the rooty flavor of rooibos, but this one was quite tolerable with a dollop of honey. It may be too weak for an actual rooibos fan, though.

I need to buy some more of this! I have specific rooibos cravings because the flavor is so unique. It’s not too sweet, so it’s a great break from all the fruity teas I have in my stash.

This was the first rooibos I tried. I really like it and so do my co-workers now.

It was good and very mellow on the flavor, good for a once in awhile. I’ll give it a thumbs up.

Blended this iced with Rishi Blueberry Rooibos, Adagio Pi Lo Chun, Mighty Leaf Organic Spring Jasmine, Numi Rooibos. I definitely added this to use up the last bag I had since it doesn’t taste good alone IMO.

Consistently one of my favorites. I found it in an NYC hotel room a few years ago and have enjoyed it ever since.

I was on the verge of ‘neutral’ rating on this one but it’s a tad better than neutral so I gave it a thumbs up but barely. Not that it’s bad just not wonderful. It does remind me a little bit of the African Autumn by Harney & Sons tho…or reminiscent of. The pre-steep aroma had me thinking I wouldn’t care for it…it smelled to sweet for me but it mellowed quite a bit after steeping. The color is a nice reddish brown. The taste is a little sweet and a little Rooibos but on the light side…almost like it’s missing something or needs to be stronger. I did over steep so it’s not that I didn’t give it enough time…got this in a sample pack so I don’t think I will be buying large quantities of it anytime soon.

I steeped for 6 minutes. It’s not a very strong rooibos. It doesn’t have the rich flavor that so many do.

Earthy vanilla flavor. No sugar (I don’t really like the taste in this kind of thing). I might have steeped it a bit long, but it tastes good.
