Now that’s fresh.

When it comes to rooibos, some say green is the new red. Because while red rooibos tastes great, some say the new wave of unoxidized green rooibos is even better. What’s so special? The production process, which is similar to that of green tea, gives it a smooth, fresh taste. Here we’ve topped it up with the tropical flavours of papaya, apple, mango and peach.

Ingredients: South African green and red rooibos, apple, mango, papaya.

So its my first day of work at my first totally full time job! O.o I am hiding away at my cubicle on lunch break because I’m too shy to talk to Ppl still haha :( and I brought this tea with me to work in my timolino! Very tasty and refreshing this morning :) i’m unsure how I’m going to brew my tea at work, there a keurig that everyone uses, but I saw a kettle, so maybe I’ll use that? Or just bring travel mugs lol, i’ll figure it out when I’m not so nervous! See previous notes on this tea!


Oh yay! Congrats! I’d say use the kettle if you have a reliable water source. Or bring a water filter. Everything made with a Keurig tastes like stale coffee. And you’ll get to know your work mates eventually. Maybe make them some tea. :)


Congrats on the new job!!


Thanks guys :) yeah I’ll probably check out the kettle this week, I also will probably get over my shyness in a week or 2 haha i usually get really chatty after a while lol

I prepped this to cold brew for tomorrow and that left me with one serving left. Made hot it is not bad. I think papaya is the most prominent element. There is also a hint of rooibos but I think it works as it is neither woodsy or medicinal, just a subtle base for the fruit to stand on. I wish there was a touch more fruit flavor but I can still enjoy the cup.

Reminded me a lot of orange juice.


Really? I definitely didn’t get that. I guess that is the beauty of steepster – everyone experiencing teas differently.

I like Main Squeeze better ;)


^ THAT’S the one that reminded me of orange juice! I get them both confused, haha


You might get more fruit out of the cold brew, I did. :)

I have to admit after I steeped this (twice) I picked the fruit out and ate it. I’ts kind of nice when your tea can also provide you with a snack. I am fruity, perhaps.

I have eaten the fruit from my tea more than a few times myself. Why waste it, right? :)


I do that all the time!! esp with my Whisky White :P


I’m glad I’m not the only one! :)


I once ordered a White Macadamia Nut black tea from Stash Tea yrs ago & the nuts tasted bitter to me then. ://

mmmm…I’ve been trying so many types of delicious rooibos teas lately that I’m not sure why I didn’t like it not that long ago. I think this is my first green rooibos, although technically this is a red and green blend. The mango is such a beautiful aspect in this rooibos, slurp, so tasty. I’m not sure why but I tend to confuse peach and mango flavored things, although in reality, a peach and a mango don’t taste at all alike to me. I enjoyed this tea hot and as it cooled it remained tasty. I wouldn’t say it knocked my socks off as much as some of my favorite honeybush teas, but it’s well on its way…hmmm…maybe just one sock :)

First in trying new things is drinking everything from previous swaps. Thank you Krystaleyn for this one!

I used all I was sent to make some iced tea so I could also remove it from my spreadsheet (it was #100 which is rather…scary). I’m enjoying the steep hot and pour over ice method with rooibos and this is no exception. I let it steep longer than necessary first since I’m finding it necessary to complain a lot about gerrymandering.

Did I mention I have a test on Foreign Policy tomorrow and a paper on the Vietnam War due Friday? I still feel the need to rant about another realm of polisci entirely, haha. But really I am annoyed to find I have been moved away from a really awesome congressman into the dungeon of the northern suburbs.

So yes this tea. It is probably one of the best green rooibos blends I’ve had to date, although that hasn’t been many. It just really lacks the grassy herb flavor that’s stood out to me in some others. I remembered this time to use a t-sac instead of trying to strain to no avail.

In the first few sips, I taste a lot of papaya. The aftertaste is very sweet (probably the apple), although it still has that green rooibos flavor that I’m not sure about. As it’s cooled a bit more with the ice, there’s peach joining the papaya. I’ve become a peach snob after the ones I had from the farmer’s market so this isn’t up to par, hahaha. I think that the weird aftertaste I get with the peach comes from the green rooibos though.

I would possibly get this again. I love papaya but I never really get anything papaya flavored. It reminds me of my brother’s hamster he had about 6 years ago. His name was Mr. Nibbles and he absolutely loved yogurt covered dried papaya chunks. This tea reminds me of him with those dried pieces in here!


Good luck on your tests!!


Hmmm, I’ll have to revisit this one myself. My last experience (a to-go cup of it) was pretty gross, but I think it was a steeping problem…

Sorry, this isn’t about the tea, but you’re a poli sci major? What do you like about it, and what do you plan to do with it? Curious because my current field of study isn’t working out (I’m very inclined to think at this point that I have an undiagnosed math LD, and it makes the chemistry and physics portions of my degree murderous), so now I’m torn between poli sci and business management.


I’m both an economics and polisci major, polsci originally was just going to be a minor but it wasn’t much more to do both. They’re so intertwined anyway, but really I enjoy polisci a lot more. I really enjoy classes on comparative analysis, my favorite so far has been comparative political economy: who spends what differently and on what, etc. I’ve also been really interested in monetary/fiscal policy sort of things, which was another reason to also get into political science at a higher level than just a minor. Eventually I would like to work in some kind of international economics organization like the OECD in the future, or a central bank.


Mr. Nibbles! So cute! XD

Iced green and fuity and barre class – a match made in heaven. Did wonders during my Boxing Day class, and was easier on the stomach than red rooibos which I’ve tried before.

I had this a long time ago, and I think I fell in love with Swampwater after this so I haven’t had any in a while, but I opted to try this again because of the green rooibos, and having been told by a friend that I am dehydrated, and green rooibos supposing to be good for that sort of thing. When I opted for some caffeine-free options, I had wanted to make sure they would be just as good hot, as iced, as I do find many herbals are better suited for iced only. This one is definitely suited for both, and since it is still periodically chilly and rainy here, hot is good.

In terms of a rooibos, green is way better than red in my book. And the fruits in this one are super yummy. I used too much sugar though…this is one I can definitely cut back on, cuz it is pretty sweet to start with.

Although I did source more Swampwater locally, I might opt to keep this one in rotation for a bit.


I’m going to have to try this one. Maybe I’ll stop at Davids tomorrow (pay day!!!) after work and get 20g.

I would have never EVER bought a tea called “green and fruity”. But since someone generously put a bag of this in the cupboard at work, well, why not?

I drank it hot and then lukewarm. Basically I was busy and couldn’t finish a cup while it was still hot. It was surprisingly good! I got papaya at the beginning and then as it cooled off I got more peach than other stuff. Maybe mango. It should only matter to you if you dislike one of the two (peach or mango)" otherwise you won’t care. It’s a nice, ripe fruit taste. Really, really good. As in, I’m going to buy this for an iced drink instead of Coco Lemon Thai good. I couldn’t believe this is Rooibos.

Green rooibos and I are new best friends. Especially this one. It’s very fruity and sweet with big chunks of dried fruit. I can definitely taste the peach and mango. It’s the candy version of these fruits but I’m ok with that. It adds to the illusion of sweetness even without sugar. There is a bit of flavor after taste that leaves me feeling like I just finished some candy. And of course my husband loved it because it was sweet and fruity. Yay. I have just enough left after my pot of tea to make a large pitcher of cold brewed yummy. That’s the fella’s favorite way of having tea. Cold, fruity and sugared up. Hopefully, I get a taste of it before he sugars up the whole pitcher. I also love that it’s caffeine free. I wish I wasn’t so sensitive to caffeine.

Perfect cold steep!

I like this much better than steeping then pouring over ice, because my ice tends to have a slight freezer taste, no matter how fresh they might be.
Cold steep it is!

Used one perfect teaspoon for a 12 oz container.

Iced 8 min or more

Loooooove this tea, should probably buy more.


Ugh, freezer taste! I know exactly what you mean and prefer cold brewing for the same reason.

Daisy Chubb

Freezer taste ruins everything ; 3; popcicles.. hamburger soup.. grandma’s cabbage rolls.

But green and fruity makes everything better ^^


I really loved this iced, so I will definitely try cold brewing
