My first Rooibos and these bags are very flavorful, different from traditional Camellia sinensis or other tisanes. A very rich flavor and hard to describe, I suppose it is what a “red bush” leaf would taste like. The color is a gorgeous deep red.

Great all-around bagged tea for everyday bagged drinkers or even for loose drinkers. The tea has a distinct taste that only you can interpret, and definitely a great alternative to straight loose drinkers.
The African Rooibos is great for the midday or afternoon. The tea also softens up a touch when just a pinch of milk is added, but it’s all for your preference. Also, the bag is made of some silky material which takes a lot of the baggy taste out of the ordinary cup.
Overall, great tea for any time of day, and great for people just starting to get in to bagged tea, or tea in general.

This is one of my favorite teas of all time, and this particular brand/blend is fantastic. It has an earthy feel to (it is South African after all) and its a nice strong flavor. Fantastic with a splash of milk and tiny bit of sugar, but it isn’t necessary because its just so wonderful. I’ve heard its great for allergies too!
Bought it on an impulse for the first time a few months ago, absolutely fell in love with the stuff. This is the first (and unfortunately, at the moment, the only) rooibos I’ve had yet, but I can’t get enough of the stuff. I steep mine for about 4 minutes, throw maybe a teaspoon of sugar in it, and I’m happy.
Delicious, heady rooibos; fruity, wine-like, and almost sweet. It brews a dark liquour with a strong flavor. It is better than most rooibos.
It is especially good with milk. Adding sugar is unnecessary but does not hurt.
It contains no ingredients except rooibos, unlike most grocery store products with “Red Tea” or “Rooibos” in their name. It is one of the few very good teas that you will have a chance of finding at your local supermarket.
