From The Republic of Tea

In the world of tea, red means rooibos. This caffeine-free herb makes a rich, red brew with full-bodied flavor. We’ve gone a step further and deepened its character and health benefits by blending finely ground rooibos with the leaves. Delicious on its own or swirled with milk and honey.

I’m a fan of rooibos, mostly I get rooibos teas that are already flavored, but this one is pure – and love!

The rooibos taste is really strong which makes a very strong flavorful tea on its own. I like adding milk with my teas, and this tea compliments perfectly.

This is probably my favorite just-plain-rooibos tea that comes in bags: It’s a very nice tea! It’s a great, basic rooibos without any other flavors. Would I recommend you buy it in its usual 36-bag tin? Sure. Would I recommend that you buy 250 bags of it in bulk, like I did? No, my friends, I would not — having finally completed that sipdown, I can assure you that it is not 250-bags-worth of amazing.

I think this is my last tea from my swap with Mina. Thanks for everything!

I wonder what makes this ‘double’? I expected a strong rooibos based on the name, but really it’s no stronger than any other rooibos. The woody, almost floral at times, notes are perhaps stronger than I’ve experienced in other rooibos blends, but the tea itself isn’t stronger. I drank it with milk as I rarely drink plain rooibos any more, and it was a pleasant enough cup to sip on while not really thinking about it.

This was a nice and flavorful, even strong, rooibos. The scent was pleasantly herbal but also sharp and slightly tart. As with other teabags from The Republic of Tea, they cut portion size down to the bare minimum for a single steep, but it’s a good steep for an inexpensive rooibos, and I’d recommend this. My only reservations are that this is a bit too average, too one-note, and if I’m going to drink a rooibos, i’d rather taste some earthy, caramel undercurrents. However, that’s just personal preference.
