From Sloane Tea Company

Rooibos, also known as Red Tea, is an anti-oxidant-rich herbal plant from South Africa. This tisane is light and fruity, and will transport you to a summer’s day in the South of France where phenomenal and fresh floral notes abound.

Had a cup of this with dinner. I do enjoy rouge de provence rooibos blends, the berries and lavender go well with red rooibos to make a rich, satisfying blend. I thought I had logged this one before but I couldn’t find the note lol. Anyways, a nice cup! Rating: 82.

Anna

Oooh, have you tried the one from Mariage Frères?

MissLena

No I haven’t tried any MF teas yet unfortunately, I’ve been looking at French companies lately though, I want to try them at some point! When I have room in my cupboard for them that is lol, currently I am out of space for any more tea :( lol

Anna

The only acceptable solution to that problem is to get a bigger cupboard.

…but yes, that sounds awesome. I guess making up fantasy shopping lists from all the French companies you want to try might work as a substitute until you free up some cupboard space. =)

MissLena

Haha yeah that would be the solution, but I think my boyfriend will kick me out if my teas take up more than half the kitchen :P lol

I am on the MF site now, they have quite a few rouge rooibos blends that look really good! I haven’t looked at reviews on here yet, it might get too tempting..haha

Anna

Ah, but I think it’s fair to keep your partner’s weight in tea – I mean, it only makes sense. Weigh the boyfriend and weigh the teas, and then subtract to see how many more lbs you have to work with.

Their reds are lush, really elegant and often very multifaceted. Nothing like cardboardy bulk-rooibos, that much is certain.

MissLena

Haha good thing he is super tall then! :D

Their teas look very good, mmm I would love to find some spectacular rooibos, I would like to cut back on caffeine more and if I had some really good rooibos, it would make it that much easier and better!

This tea comes across as a fairly unremarkable rooibos blend. I’m not terribly fond of the woodsy taste of red rooibos, but the blueberry flavouring alleviates it somewhat. I got this as part of a 4-set of tins that was being sold at my bookstore (staff discount – woot!) but I doubt I would purchase this blend by itself.

Rooibos Provence was one of the first teas I fell in love with. But I honestly think I have only ever tried one brand. After a while, it was no longer my favorite tea but I still enjoyed it every once in a while. I got this one with my Sloane tea sampler pack.

The dry smell is amazing, it smells like black currents, berries, and there is a small amount of lavender in the mix. This makes me a bit concerned because I am sure the last brand I tried did not have lavender in it.

So I have never tried this hot, I decided to cold brew this one. Brewed for about 13 hours. The tea is lovely, slightly floral but not overpowering floral. The lavender is present but very light. It adds a sweetness to the tea. I can taste the currents and berry flavours. I can taste the rooibos but it is very light, very much in the background. There is a slight sweet spice in the aftertaste. This one gives me a slight hint of Coca-Cola taste. Hmmmm… is lavender the secret ingredient in Coke?? I may be on to something…

I am quite enjoying this blend. It is a very well done rooibos. Looking forward to trying it hot.

Sipdown! Yeah that’s right…i’m on a roll this weekend after organizing my cupboard and getting everything sorted out. Of course once i get through these single cup servings it’ll be a MUCH slower process, but it feels good to be getting down….

So this tea? Thanks to indigobloom for the hook up. It pretty much tastes like a nondescript ordinary not very exciting rooibos tea. It’s not bad, but it’s nothing i feel the need to drink again.

Distinct woodsy note from the rooibos. There a bit of a wheat-like mouth feel. Fruity notes in the background with smooth sweetness.

Thanks to Indigobloom for sharing with me!

Mine wasn’t good either, nothing like in the store(to go cup). I don’t think they travelled well at all! one day I’ll compare to the real loose version.
