From Teavana

This delicious chai is made from Aspalathus linoaris, a South African plant that gives it a rich, red color. The red Rooibos is naturally caffeine-free and filled with vitamin C, minerals, and proteins. And combined with cinnamon, vanilla, ginger, and lemongrass, it makes a wonderful herbal tea.

How to Prepare
Use 1.5 teaspoons of tea per 8oz of water. Heat water to 208 degrees and steep for 5-6 minutes. 2oz of tea equals 25-30 teaspoons.
Red Rooibos with ginger, cinnamon, vanilla, lemongrass and cardamom.

Smooth Rooibos with the taste of chai spices moderated with ginger and lemongrass! Really refreshing and thirst quenching not too medicinal of chai teas

Edit: 2011-2012 batch of this rooibos chai is profoundly weak in the chai department and worst the lack of taste of the rooibos! Its brewed in the usual 200 plus degree range, filtered water with 1-2 teaspoon depending on the level of strength of taste. No matter what adjustments made its still weak…disappointment but expected. The popular this tea and importantly its cheap price of 3.80 per 20z in teavana is all the more attractive to stock up, but prone to changes especially with teavana. Price hikes and lack of quality ain’t gonna save their fortunes!

One of my staples. I love the lemon grass. To me it is not too strong but just right. I love drinking this with a little honey and a dash of cream. Its a nice treat at night.

This is my least favorite Rooibos Chai. Even though lemongrass is the last listed ingredient, it’s all I taste. Not a fan.

Oooh! This is so great with some toast and fruit at breakfast. This Rooibos Chai has moved up the list to one of my top 5 daily teas

This was my first taste of rooibos tea after I asked the barista what Teavana had in the way of decaf flavors. Done the traditional way (milk and sugar), it comes to mind of what (I have built up in my mind) I think coffee should taste like, considering the way it smells. I love the spices, but it gets a few points off for being a very mild blend (vanilla), instead of a spicy one (pepper). Nostalgic favorite.

Interesting combination. The rooibos is prominent, and the chai taste adds an interesting background to the tea!

This was my first taste of Roibos, bought it mixed with Matevana. I was surprised at how strong the flavors are. This will be a nice change from my black teas.

SO GOOD. I usually like my tea caffeinated, but I love how this chai tastes so I make an exception for it.

Teavana guy recommended this with the Rooibos Hazelnut Dolce (equal parts) and milk. I sweeten it just a bit and have it instead of regular chai when I don’t want the caffeine. It’s kind of my dessert treat when I want a change from pure tea.
