From Whittard of Chelsea

Flavours of fresh sun-ripened strawberries with a hint of cream provide a hint of summer to this rooibos blend.

oh, this is nice. I have a weakness for red fruits in tea, particularly in rooibos. I think a lot of my favorite rooibos blends have strawberry or other berries there in some form or the other. So when Melanchocolate offered to send me some of this I could not resist accepting. And it is not a disappointment at all.

Funny that I seem to get a subtle green apple (granny smith) taste from a lot of things which are strawberry based – Marco Polo for example and this here. I think it is happening on my brain not on the cup!

Preparation

you’re so lucky to like rooibos ! I’ve tried several but it doesn’t seem to be my cup of tea even if I would have like (this is nice to drink something without theine for the evening)

cteresa

Have you tried yet Marco Polo Rouge? Maybe that could be the one for you.

About rooibos, I am picky, very picky admittedly, but I am lucky I like plain rooibos (if good! If good it can be this sort of woody honey like taste. If bad, it can taste like wood in a bad way, that is saw dust!). And you are right, rooibos is lucky to like, it is so much more interesting and cozy-inducing than plain tisanes or nasty hibiscus without messing up my sleep!

Ysaurella

nope never tried Marco Polo Rouge but I will !

cteresa

Don’t buy 100 grams of it! I am now wondering if maybe green rooibos might not be better for you to try – green rooibos is less used but it can be lovely! I don’t have Marco rouge or would send you some, got a couple green rooibos (plain and a spicy one which is not great) that I could send you – with a warning those are not great ! Not bad but not fabulous either

Ysaurella

I think I have some Marco Polo Rouge in a swap with LaFleurBleue (as a mystery blend)…didn’t try ot yet but definitively will

TheTeaFairy

cteresa, I agree with you that, even if it’s not my favourite, I will have any Rooibos over a boring tisane or nasty hibiscus!

cteresa

Do try Marco Polo Rouge, Ysaurella! It might be it – or we should try very different rooibos.

TheTeaFairy, I actually swear that rooibos, a good cup properly prepared can leave me with this warm glowy well-being feeling but the kind which lets you sleep really well and reallt fast rather than a glowy well feeling which makes you organize all kitchen cupboards and finish 2 reports in 3 hours (that is mate for me). But I am picky about rooibos, even if I do like plain rooibos or rooibos where you notice the rooibos itself. I think one thing for sure – flavoured rooibos should almost always have some vanilla, vanilla goes magically well with the natural rooibos taste!

Drinking this right now before bed with a chocolate yoghurt! On Monday I’m doing a shop in London (Covent Garden again, yay!) since I happen to be visiting for other reasons, so hopefully I’ll get some new, intriguing flavours to try. For now, an all-time favourite.

First thing I noticed about this before buying it is the distinct scent of strawberry laces from the rooibos itself, before brewing. I kid you not, it smells EXACTLY like strawberry laces sweets. If that’s what you’re riding on then you may be a little disappointed to find that it does not in fact taste as sweet as a strawberry lace, but if you’re like me and are very keen on finding great fruity combos with rooibos, this is one for you.

The rooibos is very malty and somehow that just works perfectly with the strawberry- rather than overpoweringly sweet the strawberry blends into the rooibos and takes the edge off the original pungency that rooibos tends to have, and the tea definitely makes the strawberry sweetness wind down some. And oh, it’s just so fruity! Leaves a strong taste in your mouth after each sip, and just warms you to the core.

I love great fruity combos on rooibos. This is going on my to-check list next time I am in London.

meliorate

@cteresa, I’d be happy to send you some if you’d like a try! :D

cteresa

Oh, not sure I can resist that offer! If you have enough and do not mind the trouble, I would love to try it. And can I send it something else? Do you know Nil Rouge? It´s not fruity exactly, but Mariage Freres is pretty awesome at rooibos IMO!

meliorate

Ohhh yes please, I’d always love to try more MF <3

cteresa

Ok, I am going to send you a message then!

Great tasting rooibos with a stronger than expected strawberry flavour. The strawberry is pleasant tasting – great in an afternoon with a biscuit or two. Naturally sweet.

My co-workers commented on the nice strawberry scent in our office after I’d brewed this. If you like fruity teas then I would definitely recommend!
