I’m not a fan of red rooibos but this green rooibos is not as astringent. The fruits also make this tea more to my taste. Not a favorite but good enough to recommend to other tea lovers :)

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.

I think I have overdosed on peach tea and now I can’t stand peachy flavouring in my tea. Darnit. I was a little hesitant about the mango in this blend as well. Very happy I only bought a cup and not a bag. If this was “green & citrusy” instead, I’d probably like it a lot more.

For someone who has never drank tea before this was a nice start, I had a sample in the store and was instantly hooked. I enjoyed it after dinner when I felt it was to late in the evening to have something else to eat but still felt I needed something. Can see this being a staple in my new tea cupboard from now on!
My very first tasting note! Upon first whiff of this the first thing that comes to mind is Juicy Fruit chewing gum. Upon first sip, same thing! I just had some Juicy Fruit gum yesterday and the taste is definitely similar. The fruitiness is mild which I like as I don’t like strong flavoured teas. I like that this tea is not overly sweet. I can’t handle a sickeningly sweet tea. I enjoyed it hot and cold. Not sure if this is one I’d always have to have on hand but I will enjoy what I have of it. Quite pleasant indeed!
Backlog from this weekend.
This one smells fruity and tropical in the tin – it’s not overpowering, but it’s definitely there. I steeped this one and, unfortunately, got so sidetracked that I didn’t end up drinking it after it had cooled down to room temperature. This one is bland at room temperature, I got absolutely no fruit flavor. Actually, I didn’t get much of any flavor.
After I bought this, I thought I’d be disappointed because there’d be too much papaya flavor, and I’m not a huge fan of papaya. I didn’t expect this to have no flavor at all.
Reserving my rating until I can have another cup of this, preferably while it’s still hot.
Not sure how I feel about this… it’s nice enough, but I don’t love it so much that I want to buy more. It’s fruity – I can definitely taste peach and papaya. I like the chunks of candied fruit; I don’t like the “artificial flavour”. I liked the mix of red and green rooibos as a base, though it was pretty overshadowed by the fruitiness of it all. Meh, decent as fruity rooibos blends go, but nothing to write home about.
Flavors: Fruity, Peach
This tea matches its name: green rooibos and fruit. The light green rooibos has quiet tones of honey and grass, but is mainly a carrier for the bold fruit flavors. Mango, peach and papaya make this flavor juicy and tropical, though I will say it would be hard for me to tell this apart from mango fruit punch. As with most David’s Teas, this blend is very sweet and strongly flavored. I will say that this was very tasty iced, and would be a nice caffeine-free alternative to fruity green tea blends this summer. Simple, sweet, green and fruity.

A sample from ashleyelizabeth. I thought this was a green tea for the longest time, so I was quite surprised to find it was actually a rooibos blend. It pays to read the pouch, right? I’ve been drinking this one as my pre-bedtime cup over the last couple of nights, and it’s certainly a fruity treat!
I gave 1 tsp of leaf about 4 minutes in boiling water. No additions. The main flavours I can pick out are mango and papaya. When hot, it’s a very fruity, refreshing cup. As this one cools, the flavouring does pick up a slightly over-the-top, almost artificial kind of flavour. I usually detect this most prominently with peach, as it tastes kind of plastic-like, but I’m getting it slightly here too. It’s not a huge problem — it just means I need to slurp it quickly! I do like the fruitiness here, and how it’s the main flavour rather than the rooibos base, but it’s not my favourite fruity rooibos because of the slight chemically bent to the flavour. The green rooibos is a good base here, though, and it definitely ticks more boxes for me more often that red rooibos does. Food for thought.
