From Shanti Tea

Light, vegetal taste, with a hint of vanilla

A light, fresh tastin rooibos which is quickly withered and steamed to prevent oxidation. This allows it to retain its green color. It has a grassy aroma similar to sencha, and tastes mildly sweet. Studies have shown that green rooibos has more anti-oxidants than red rooibos, bringing closer in line with green tea.

Very nice. Lightly sweet. I prefer green rooibos over red rooibos and this tisane reminds me why. The sweetness here is much more natural tasting, like it’s been derived from sun-ripened fruit as opposed to that saccharine-like sweetness that I taste from red rooibos. No funky aftertaste either.

The flavor is slightly vegetal, not quite grassy like a green tea kind of grassy, but, more like a sweet/fruity kind of vegetal, and notes of nut and wood in the background. It is light and crisp. Enjoyable.

I’ve never had a green rooibos, but the way you differentiate the sweetness between the green and the red makes me want to try it!

Oh yes, I know what you mean. Green rooibos is so fresh and bright tasting, very fruity and refreshing with a palate cleansing/cooling effect. I think red rooibos for the most part is just flat and odd tasting.

@SimpliciTEA – you should try it. I like some red rooibos, but usually it is blends where the flavorings tend to mask much of the weird taste of the red rooibos. The green rooibos, on the other hand, is much lighter and even seems to sparkle when you sip it. It’s very refreshing.

Well, with that enticing description green rooibos is now at the top of my list of new teas to try!

Actually for me, although I haven’t tried that many herbal teas, I do really like red rooibos.

You can get a pound of it from Davidson’s for $14.65 on Amazon.

Wow. I’ll look into it. Thanks!

A nice standard Green Rooibos…a very little sweetness paired with a little nutty-vegetal taste but quite smooth.

Drinking only Rooibos and Honeybush for the rest of today…
