This is one of the better flavored rooibos teas I’ve found. It’s simple, but tasty. The vanilla and almond flavors are just right and very natural tasting. I’m very glad I finally decided to purchase this one. Prepared with stevia.

Our blend of naturally caffeine–free South African red rooibos, vanilla, and almond bits is an herbal delight! Rooibos is full of antioxidants and healthy minerals such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, copper, and fluoride. It has a wonderfully smooth flavor, and is a great cold buster as well as thirst quencher. It brews into a dark red liquor and has a naturally sweet, earthy scent, reminiscent of pipe–tobacco. You cannot over–steep this tea (the longer the better!) and it is fantastic by itself, or with cream and a bit of sweetener. Red Rocks is the perfect, healthy, all-around herbal tea – a favorite amongst athletes and as mom’s choice for children.

I really enjoy this tea. I knew I would like it the second I opened the tin. It smelled like cherry tobacco! The smell of it brewed is just as good. This is one of my favorite rooibos blends. I love almond and vanilla together always a yummy combination. It is quite sweet by itself (which is how I normally drink it) but tastes delicious with honey or as a tea latte.
This is so delicious! The vanilla is really easy to smell in the dry leaf, so it’s not surprising that it would be detectable in the brew. There’s a small bit of almonds in the tea, but not nearly as much as vanilla. The natural sweetness in the rooibos and the vanilla just play off each other here; it’s really delicious.

It’s been a while since I’ve found a flavor tea that I’ve liked so much. Vanilla and almond work so well with rooibos, it’s like it’s meant to be. Both flavorings are strong enough to barely overtake the rooibos, but not overwhelmingly so. Yum. Great for autumn, but also seems good for a year round.

Another Tea Sparrow tea from Cheri! I’ve been curious about this tea for a little while, as I always am about anything almond or vanilla-related. There are a few pieces of almond mixed in with the rooibos itself. Dry scent is quite sweet and I can definitely smell vanilla. The instructions recommended a tablespoon of tea (?!) but that sounded ridiculous to me, so I halved it for my 8 ounce cup.
Once brewed, it smells like rooibos (woody, etc.) with vanilla and the tiniest hint of marzipan. Unfortunately, this basically tastes like rooibos to me… Maybe with a little bit of vanilla, but not enough. And I definitely don’t get any almond. Oh almond teas, why must you always disappoint? :(

Oh wow, this is good I mean really good.
Vanilla, almond, creamy.
It reminds me of a shortbread almond cookie.
It’s also really creamy. Surprisingly creamy. Deliciously creamy, especially since I’m sans dairy right now.
I haven’t tried a resteep yet, but the tin tells me I can.
The resteep is just as delicious. Maybe not quite as creamy, but still creamy and delicious.
