Love it with drop of stevia & milk!! Smells so good too! Like a good dessert without the claories!

“Last two bags!! Yay for decupboarding! And on a side note: there was no tea at conference (yet, I'm hopeful about the morning). And my first cup of this today did not last.” Read full tasting note
“This went down the drain. The rooibos was just too strong (and kind of medicinal) in this cup. There was a hint of strawberry but it took a lot of searching to find it. Into the swap box with this...” Read full tasting note
Seductive chocolate married with a hint of strawberry in this amply amorous cup. Rooibos, or red tea, provides the base in which these two flavors mingle.
Rooibos is also known for its super antioxidant powers – sipping this delicious dessert tea together may inspire a long and loving life for you and your sweetheart.

Not sure about this one.
Got it in a swap, so I don’t know how fresh the bag is. But I second the dusty/musty smell to it. It wasn’t bad when drunk, it just was kind of lackluster. I did add milk/sugar in the hopes to give it a bit more body, but it was weak at best.
Hmm….warrents another sip but who knows?
Not impressed. This sample came free with my RoT catalog. They’re out of the normal black tea in the breakroom at work, so I figured I’d try this. I must admit, seeing Rooibos on the list was NOT a plus for me. It did smell good when opened, like chocolate covered strawberry candy. I was a bit surprised at how small the bag seemed. Brewing it smelled ok too. You could definitely get the scent of the chocolate behind the strawberry note, but there was an odd musty sort of underscent. I presume that’s the rooibos.
It steeps quickly to a reddish-amber and the color of the bag indicates there probably isn’t a good second steep in it. Which is not a problem, as this isn’t very good. You can taste the chocolate and the strawberry, but they’re almost artificial in some way, overly sweet. The musty rooibos aftertaste isn’t very appetizing either. Now that I’ve had this, I’ll know to refuse a cup in the future. Poor taste, unappealing stamina, and severely overpriced. Bleah.
