First time I’ve ever thrown away a tea. It was just sitting in my stash smelling artificial and chemically. I was never going to drink it. I can’t seem to trade it away/sell it. Everyone I’ve given samples to has disliked it. I can’t even like it mixed with other teas or cold brewed. It can’t be saved.

So this is a “sipdown” in that I got to delete it from my spreadsheet, but I couldn’t bring myself to drink it down. I used the tin for my new fabulous milky green oolong. #noregrets

Tastes a little bit artificial. I’m not a huge fan of the strawberry flavour they used, but I do like that it isn’t acidic or tart. That being said, the flavour was apparent (but not strong), even on the second and third steep. This tea tisane was pretty good with milk and with honey added.

I still have 5 ounces of this (along with three other rooibos blends from Granville) that I’m never going to get through. I’m hoping I end up with a travelling teabox soon because I just have so much of it!

Overall, blueberry rooibos is a bit plain, but I like the sweet, woody rooibos and the dried blueberries. Nothing really stands out for me in this blend, but it makes for a good cup when you are craving rooibos.

Never again will I buy 400g of rooibos in one purchase. I still have all four rooibos flavours I bought from Granville. They are getting older, but 100g of each flavour takes a long time to drink.

I made that mistake a few times. So I started blending it with other things to make nice iced drinks. Lemonade, wine, fruit punch etc. Brought it to a few parties as part of my potluck contribution. Still getting through it all haha

Yup. I drink them all the time, give them away in sample trades, put some in travelling tea boxes, and I still have so much.

It turned me off rooibos! Couldn’t touch the stuff for almost three years

Raspberry and vanilla flavours could be a bit stronger, but overall a very tasty and sweet tea. There is a creamy, dessert-like quality to this tea, which I very much enjoy.

This tea is very sweet and rooibos-y but there is not a lot of apple flavour or apple pie spices. It smells like sweet apple pie, but I wish the flavour was a bit stronger. The nice thing about this tea is you can keep the tea bag in and it never gets too strong or bitter.

Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Fruity, Rooibos, Spices, Sweet

Preparation
