Ok, this is my first Rooibee Red Tea. I bought a mixed 12pk, mainly for the flavors, but I am starting with the plain unsweet one.
*It’s very refreshing, goes down easy. I had to force myself to savor it instead of chug it.
*No calories, sugar, etc, and it’s organic
*The natural sweetness of rooibos, plus the citric acid, makes this just as enjoyable as actual “sweet tea” in my book!
*The citric acid is a bit strong – this tastes like lemon tea, and seems more acidic as it gets warm
*No iron or vitamin C (or any other nutrients). If I made my own iced plain rooibos w/ lemon, it would be healthier because it would at least have those 2 things…
Verdict: Undecided. I do like it, but expect to like the flavored ones better. I wouldn’t go buy a case of this on its own, but I would rather drink it than water or overly sweet black iced tea. I’m giving it a 55 for now, may go up when I try the second one (I did forget to shake this bottle first, so there was some settling which may have affected the flavor)
