drank Vanilla Rooibos by Market Spice
4843 tasting notes

I’ve had this for a while, but I keep forgetting to log it when I drink it. Mostly because when I am enjoying it, it is later at night and I’m not sitting at the computer … but I was determined tonight to write the note!!!

This is one of those teas that tastes better than it smells. When I first opened it, it kind of had a tobacco-y kind of scent, and I like the smell of tobacco (so long as it’s not burning in a cigarette) but, not to drink … you know? I mean, it’s a pleasant smell, but it’s not something I’d think “mmm…that’d be good to drink.”

But, like I said, it tastes better than it smells. It tastes of vanilla, first and foremost, with a hint of apple-y chamomile. I taste a bit of the woody tones from the rooibos, but it melds nicely with the vanilla notes. Overall, it’s a very pleasant tisane – and it’s really nice to have on hand for those evenings when you want something smooth and easy to sip.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
