From Vintage TeaWorks

Inspired by Pinot Noir, we
 blended natural ingredients to create a rooibos herbal tea blend that is 
light, fruity and fun, with hints of mango, blueberry, raspberry and
 hibiscus. (3.0 oz. / 85.05g- about 30 cups)

About Pinot Noir – Pinot Noir is often called the Heartbreak Grape because it breaks many a winemaker’s heart in their quest for its nectar. A light bodied, red wine that can be high in acid, it often has low tannins and is oaked. Pinot Noir’s aromas and flavors have been compared to fruits like strawberries, cranberries, and black cherries. One of the things we love about Pinot is the undertone of spice, smoke or incense that expresses itself in each sip.

Tea and Food Pairings – Our caffeine free Rooibos Noir is the perfect pairing with chicken 
or pork dishes. Try it iced with fruit slices as a tea-inspired sangria.

Ingredients – Organic rooibos, organic mango fruit, blueberry fruit, hibiscus petals, cornflower petals, rose petals, natural flavorings.

I like this a lot. It’s really quite good. The fermented grape flavor comes through but tastes a bit more like currants than strong wine, and there is a sweet/tart flavor from the blueberries and raspberries, and a delicious, smooth sweetness from the mango. And might I add … next to NOTHING from the hibiscus. I steeped this for 10 full minutes, and I do not feel the syrupy texture from the hibiscus. I barely taste the tartness from the hibiscus, and what little there is, it is there to accentuate the flavor of the berry and currant, rather than detract from the flavors.

I don’t taste much rooibos either… only hints of rustic woody notes and nutty tones, none of that funky, sour wood or weird sweetness or aftertaste.

I’m very pleased with how this one turned out. Very nice.

I said to myself…self, I said…I’m in the mood for a Rooibos…this one called to me.

This is Vintage Tea Works Fruity and Fun Mix and it is just that. It’s Fruity – more notably the grape/currant type flavors. It’s sort of reminiscent of Sangria – and that is a welcomed comparison – in my book.

This is a well-done flavored rooibos. The Mango and Blueberry work with the Rooibos nicely. The rose gives it that little bit of floral without it being too perfumy. The Mango seems to linger with the Rooibos and Hibiscus a bit more than the rest of the flavors. The Hibiscus is at an acceptable and appreciated level of tartiness and not overdone.

This is well thought of and to the point but still fruity and fun.

Many thanks to Brandon of Vintage TeaWorks for the sample. We had an amazing chili tonight (using a lot of the leftover turkey – thankfully) and I was well, stuffed. I didn’t realize it was pushing 8pm until my husband asked why I was making a black tea so late. He has been taught well. So I opted to try this one out instead.

The dry leaf smells a bit like wine and of course rooibos. But with a hint of something more. So I waited for the water to boil and the tea to steep and as it did boy did the Pinot Noir flavors come out to play! I’m not normally a fan of reds…but if all reds tasted like this…well I might be sold. There is a hint of sweet to this (which I think is the rooibos, but I also taste fruity notes too), with undertones of tart with a little bite! I like it.

I think this would make a great Sangria! A really nice sipping tea. Look for more on the blog by Tuesday…I’ve got more to try!
