From The Tea Table

Sweet Sin Rooibos Tea offers a refreshing raspberry vanilla taste that is the perfect summertime tea! Superior grade rooibos with freeze-dried whole raspberries, rose petals, vanilla pieces and flavoring. Caffeine-free. Use 1 tsp. per cup and steep in freshly boiled water for 5-10 minutes.

Rooibos (pronounced “roy bus”) is made from the needle-like leaves of a caffeine-free bush native to South Africa. It is oxidized like black tea, and is a popular alternative to decaffeinated black tea. Good both hot and cold, it has a mild flavor and won’t turn bitter with extended brewing. It is reputed to be even higher in antioxidants than green tea and is known for its soothing properties.

Somebody sent me a whole bag of this tea and I was about to give it away, untasted, untested, untried. But for some reason I hesitated. I don’t like Rooibos but the other tea I had from The Tea Table was remarkably good. The Tea Table has a nice web site proclaiming that “I believe it is customary in polite society to take some slight refreshment at five o’clock.” (Oscar Wilde)

An Oscar Wilde quotation. Good. And it just morphed into a Thomas De Quincey quotation! Better! Best? This tea could be a solution to my rooibos hate. I really liked it. The vanilla raspberry taste seemed fresh, smooth, and authentic and even though the tea does look like wood shavings, I didn’t pick up any of the tell-tale taste of sawdust. It looks as if I have another tea company to order from.

Tee-hee! Just added it to my “Tea Favorites” tab. I really need to start making subcategories ;)

This is one of the other companies I got a tea of the month club membership in on the recommendation of a friend who has been buying from them for years. They have excellent service, in my experience. I’ve yet to actually taste much of their stuff, though.

I’m down for solutions to rooibos hate, definitely saving this company for when I have money to spend on tea again…

Fantastic dessert tea. Rooibos is the perfect base for the sweet assortment of flavors.
