Brewed in a big teapot.
Best rooibos I’ve ever tasted, very easy to brew. A taste of vanilla and almond.
The tea is oily and smooth.

“I used to love red rooibos, then hated it, now I rarely drink it. Until now.. this tea is absolutely divine. I’ll seek this out again – sadly, it was just a sample in a RedditGifts “extra” gift.” Read full tasting note
A delicious pairing of vanilla and almond against a delicate rooibos backdrop, for a warm and sophisticated blend. Sprinkled with pieces of vanilla pods, this tea entirely caffeine free may be enjoyed at any time of day or evening.

I’ll add up to my review after a few more pots from this one.
On my bag, it says “A delicious rooibos, enlivened by marigold petals, evokes the tasty perfume of vanilla. Perfect in the evening.”
When opening the bag, it looks nice with the yellow petals. The taste of almond directly came to my mind and I was surprised not to see it mentioned. After brewing, the smell of almond is definitely still there. When drinking, it is actually the only taste that I can think of.
I like almonds. However I have the feeling that there is too much of it and that this overwhelming flavor kills all the others.
I’ll definitely look out for the missing vanilla next time and am convinced after 2 pots that I will have more than enough of it by the time the bag is finished.
Sorry, guys, I thought this one was awful. Very woody and sour, though perhaps slightly a higher quality than the woody sour I’m used to from red rooibos. The vanilla is present, but more an aroma than a flavor. I couldn’t finish this one.
Flavors: Sour, Wood
Almond, not quite marzipan almond, but a sweet almond, vs. a crunchy almond. And oh, is this good. I wish this came in a caffeinated version. This is by far the best tea I’ve had. Vanilla almond love.
Flavors: Almond, Marzipan, Rooibos, Vanilla
This sample came from Sara. I find myself liking rooibos (and caffeine-free in general) blends more and more recently for some reason. It’s interesting how tastes change. Anyway! Visually, this tea is just red rooibos with some yellow cornflower petals added in for flair. It smells vaguely vanilla-esque.
The steeped cup mostly smells of red rooibos, with a bit of an almond extract flavor added in. Hmm… It tastes like straight rooibos. There’s a little hint of an almond flavor at the end/aftertaste, but otherwise it’s just woody rooibos. Since I’m unsure how old this sample is, I’m going to withhold a rating. Sad face.
Flavors: Rooibos, Wood
I have been drinking this tea for a couple of weeks, during my late study-evenings in Oslo. This tea has been a pleasant and regular company which I will not replace under any condition.
While i smell the dry tea leaves, the vanilla scent is dominant but in the background its like a bittersweet scent of almond.
I’ve mostly drunk this tea hot and I think it’s great mix between a sweet vanilla taste and bitter almond. Sometimes I think it’s a bit buttery and all the flavors is rolling on my tongue.
If i drink this one before I go to bed I feel relaxed and sleep very well.
Flavors: Butter, Nuts, Vanilla
