From Twinings of London

A naturally caffeine-free herbal tea expertly blended with authentic Rooibos or herbal red tea which has a distinctive reddish colour and pleasantly sweet flavour that naturally contains antioxidants.

Authentic Rooibos (pronounced roy-boss) or Herbal Red Tea comes only from the Cedarberg Mountains in the remote area of central South Africa. This herbal tea, made from the leaves of the Rooibos plant, has been enjoyed for countless generations by native South Africans. The plant is harvested in summer, fermented and then dried in the sun until it reaches a deep mahogany red colour. Twinings Pure Rooibos Herbal Red Tea has a pleasantly sweet flavour. Great to drink with lunch or in the afternoon, this tea is best with a little milk or served plain.

Ingredients: Rooibos

So the little man has been struggling with eczema. He’s been itching and it’s been affecting his sleep which of course makes for long nights for us. My wife and I have been reading how putting rooibos in a baby’s bath can help with eczema. We’ve been trying everything until we can get him into a pediatric dermatologist. So this was on sale at the grocery and wife asked “you’ll drink it too right?”…..but of course. So we put a few bags in with Mr. Zeke’s oatmeal bath, and one in a cup for daddy :) I really like the fact that since it’s rooibos this one is full leaf and not dust. You can see it through the bag. Smelling the pure rooibos here I understand better why David’s tea did have add too much to make the Oh Canada blend. The dry leaf has a sweet woodsy maple aroma. Same with liquor in the cup. A cedar like woodsy flavor almost even wine like. There’s a little sweetness too without any sugar. This is really good and I hope it’s helps t the little man too.


I have eczema on my right hand. Its terrible. I watch to scratch it all the time. I don’t know about tea helping it though.


watch meant to be want


I’m also from Ohio. :)

We figured it can’t hurt. Cheers to being a buckeye :)


You can drink it, bathe in it … just like Vitameatavegimin! (Cool…have used chamomile/lavender often for bath purposes, but hadn’t heard the rooibos trick.)


I will have to buy rooibus. Thank you.


I really think the Rooibos tea is working. I’m drinking some tonight. Thank you.

For a bagged tea, this isn’t half bad. Presumably, it’s easier to get things “right” when it’s a straight-up tea, unflavoured and not a blend. This is your run of the mill rooibos: pleasant enough, but certainly nothing to write home about. I love rooibos in all its woodsy glory (maybe I was Elven in a previous life—my ears seem point enough for it), and I wanted something simple and caffeine-free, so I’m happy. (I’d have been happier had I not burnt my tongue, but hey, that’s not the tea’s fault. Clumsy Smurf, me.)

My favorite teas are black teas, but this is a pleasant tea when you wanna mix things up. This is the second rooibos I’ve ever had and it wasn’t dissapointing for me. I prefer this one in the afternoon than any other time of day.

It’s palatable enough. It has a pleasant smell when brewed…a little medicinal. Initially it tastes hay like but I’m getting a definite undertone of something medicinal. Something like cough syrup…underneath and definitely as an end note. I wanted to get the pure herb/plant by itself before I began acquiring other flavored rooibos teas so I knew what to expect from the rooibos. I wanted to get a couple more caffeine free teas that weren’t just for bedtime. Oh! I also drank this straight up…no sugars…I don’t like to add stuff to my tea to make it taste better.

I had to struggle through this tea. This is the only Rooibos I have tried (and likely the only one I will), so I don’t know if it is the brand or if I just don’t like Rooibos. It was like drinking watered down cough syrup with some earthy notes. The real problem for me came afterward though, I think I am possibly allergic to this as I ended up with breathing difficulty and a flushed face. My rating reflects the flavour only, as for me personally it was a 1 and I think it’s best I never try Rooibos again.

1) Initial Impressions: Full red color and aromatic bush taste make this something I a excited to try. I like Twinings because their Earl Grey is among the few bagged version I don’t hate.
2) First Taste: There’s a bit of saltiness I get first. And earthiness. Not at all what I was expecting.
3) Second Sip: I don’t know if it’s actually salt water in the brewing process or just crappy bags? This is not good. Like…it’s bothering me how much it’s not good.
4) Final Thoughts: This might smell similar to rooibos, but it in No way tastes like it. It’s damn near awful. I doubt it is a dud bag too. Bummer.

Interesting damp, woodsy taste and aroma. Beautiful red color. Would like to let this one grow on me. New to herbals and rooibos.

Intense busy day at work, after sleeping only 4 hrs. Anyway after downing a much needed energy drink earlier today (don’t judge!) I wanted something…calming…relaxing in the last hour or so before leaving work and this was perfect – no cleanup being in a teabag and in the mood for something on the sweet side. I don’t know if one rooibos is really that different from another, but this seemed great to me especially for a bagged tea – slightly sweet with woody, warm, honey apple flavour, something I would repurchase. Rooibos also doesn’t seem to oversteep, left it in the cup for a good while, and I also took the bag with me in my travel mug for a 3rd infusion all the way home and it was just fine.

A nice rooibos, not too much earthy taste. Scent is light and lovely. I would definitely steep at least 4-5 minutes next time.
