From Tea Forte

From the soul of South Africa, naturally caffeine-free, antioxidant-rich rooibos herb blended with the taste of berries, blossoms, and a wisp of sweet vanilla. A smooth and delicious cup.

Ingredients: rooibos, elderberries, rosehip, blueberries, mallow flowers, rose petals, natural flavoring (vanilla and berries)

Steeping Guidelines: Steep for at least 5 minutes in boiling water. Unlike tea, rooibos never grows bitter from steeping. Steep as long as you like.

Caffeine: Naturally caffeine-free

Definitely one of my favourite teas from TeaForte!! They’re an.. okay tea company. I LOVE their tea pyramids since they’re just so darn cute, but they do tend to run on the pricier side so I very rarely purchase from them. But this is one of my favourites, and I have to thank my sister for sending me some of their teas. That tea trio that she got me is all finished up now! Goodbye African Solstice, you will be missed.

Another from the GCTTB

I’m really liking this one. Nice fruity, vanilla rooibos. The rooibos is not in your face, it’s sitting well in the background. This isn’t fake like the other Tea Forte I was drinking earlier. Nice juicy fruity – well done. Happy to be drinking this tonight.

I believe this came from Ellen. I apologize if I am wrong.

When I first opened the little sample package, it was just rooibos. I was a bit disappointed but I went through and tried it anyway.

It was pretty good. I initially thought it was a great, high quality rooibos, it was sweet, slightly spicey. Astringent in the aftertaste.

Then I came here to do the review and found out that there was much more than rooibos in the blend. I didn’t have any little berries or flowers in the sample packet I had. Now that I know what is in it, I think the sweetness is vanilla and the spiceyness is the berries.

The blend was good, but no flavour really distinct from the other. Reminds me very slightly of rooibos de provence.

Good balance of rooibos flavour and fruity sweetness. Flavour is slightly thin.

Thank you to Ellyn for letting me try this!

Tasty vanilla rooibos with a hint of berry. It reminds me of the berry flavored Creamsavers hard candy. It’s very nicely done, well flavored. A nice, soothing cup to sip whilst listening to the operations folk plot Monday (apparently, we’re supposed to be getting a nice, good-size snow Sunday/Monday).

ETA: Thanks, LiberTEAS, for sending me this one to try out! I don’t love it nearly as much as I love the Flora, but it’s still delish!

I think this tastes almost better cold-brewed than hot-brewed.

I haven’t been having good luck with Tea Forte as of late (with their herbal sampler), this is one I got in the Exotic gift set that was in a way re-gifted to me. There is an odd vanilla/berry aroma that I’m smelling as this steeps. There is a beautiful amber liquid in my cup, but the true test will be in the taste…which isn’t half bad. Still that odd mix of berry and vanilla flavor that I’m not sure go together well. It was worth a try, right?

Absolutely awful. Tastes artificial and the sweetness is sickening. I think it’s the combination of berries and vanilla. The liquor is a dark reddish pink, and it tastes just like it’s color.

EDIT: I gave this another shot. My opinion remains unchanged. My mother and friend beg to differ though. They love this tea. Maybe I just don’t like berry teas.

A nice flavored rooibos. Nice creamy vanilla, nice earthy rooibos, and a nice non-overwhelming taste of berries, yum.
