I actually tried the loose version of this tea rather than the sachet, but the product page is the same as linked here.

I enjoyed this! I got two good steeps out of it. It has a nice, smooth feeling. It’s definitely a nice flavored rooibos.

Bonus: My son also loved the sunflower on the packaging.

I got this on sale and, as of today, it's still on the sale price on their website. Hence, this one gets a better "value" rating from me than most Teavana teas.

I love the aroma of this tea. I always enjoy lavender, and the caramel adds just the right kind of sweetness. In fact, when I noticed the caramel bits in th...

It's not bad, but it isn't the tastiest blend I've ever had. The rooibos, the spice, and the vanilla are all there, but I think the black tea chais tend to be preferable. The sweet and spice are indeed nice, so it's certainly worth a shot. It also holds up decently well to repeated steepings.

I like this herbal tea. The rooibos is solid and smooth. The lemon blends well with it, though fairly subtle. The stronger flavor, which I notice after each sip, is of marshmallow. Hence, it's more sweet than citrusy. It's able to get a couple of quite good cups.

This is a solid herbal tea. I like the mix of flavors with the rooibos, though orange isn't my favorite flavor to have in a hot tea. For this reason, other flavor mixes work better for me. This is fruity, floral, sweet, and refreshing.

Mmmmmm, now this is tea! If this was available loose leaf, it'd be perfect. The smell is delicious and the flavor is perfect -- a lovely balance between the spices and the rooibos. It's good on its own, but a cup of this is amazing with just a pinch or two of stevia added. It adds a smooth sweetness without overpowerin...

Zesty! Not as complex or interesting as it could be, but quite nice. Then lemon and rooibos flavors go well together. Pricier than what I would like, but a nicely refreshing blend with a nice aroma.

EXCELLENT flavor combination. I love the fruitiness and the slight astringency (not bitterness) from the hibiscus. Both complement the rooibos very well. This sounded very good to me, so I'm glad that Rishi doesn't disappoint. If the ingredients list sounds good to you, you'll love it too.

Feb. 27th, 2015

Quite good! It doesn't quite reach perfection for me, but it's among the best chocolate teas I've found. It also is *strongly* reminiscent of red velvet cake, with a vanilla accent. Naturally, this is a sweet/dessert tea.

It's hard for me to put my finger on how it could be improved, though I have a feeling it could...

Really good! An excellent balance of lightly tart and lightly sweet flavors. The first cup was an enticing, and therefore quite quick, drink. I had it at work at the beginning of the day. The second cup isn't as strong as the first, but is still pleasant.

No loose leaf version of this one is available, unfortunately...

Ooh, another well done herbal tea. Rooibos proves again to be an excellent base for flavors. Strawberry, rooibos, and vanilla--simple, but wonderfully balanced. The level of sweetness is perfect and there's a touch of creaminess. It's a bit like a not-overly-sweet strawberry cream hard candy that I could absent-minded...

A decent, keeps-it-simple vanilla rooibos. Loose leaf would definitely be better, but this is solid for a tea bag. You definitely need to be in the mood for a dessert tea, though. Good if you want a substantial, rich, after dinner drink that won't give you a buzz.

I tried it with milk added for the second cup. This ...

Better than I expected! I have a sore throat as i drink this and it's satisfying my craving fine a drink that tastes healthful in a citrus-spice siry of way. The rooibos adds body rather than flavor. Cinnamon and orange are tge tastes present. They are prevailing without being overly intense. I'd definitely recommend t...

A nice chai! I enjoyed the spices and thought they blended well with the rooibos. I didn't try it with milk, but I suspect it would be great with the creaminess that would impart. I particularly notice the cardamom and the cinnamon, though neither is overwhelming. I think this tea could be particularly lovely if they h...

Highly enjoyable tea. This is basically a chai with rooibos as the base. While the flavors are pleasant and well mixed, I would appreciate a stronger flavor. At times, this one comes off a little thin. No bitterness or anything else problematic; I would just love to get even more of a good thing. :-)

Oh wow, now this is my kind of tea! (Okay, herbal tea, but still.) In both aroma and taste, a perfect balance of flowers and citrus. It's tart, but not excessively so, and sweet, but in a way that works for me. The tea brews up to a lovely pink and amber color. Despite the lack of caffeine, I find this tea invigorating...

Slowly but surely, I'm realizing that rooibos may be my favorite base for flavored teas. The aroma of this one before being brewed is intensely of blueberry, which I love. The flavor of the drink is both more subtle and more balanced. For me, this makes it a solid anytime tea. I brewed it fairly long, six minutes, but ...

This isn't a bad tea, but it would be more impressive if the flavor felt fuller. A more robust rooibos taste might make it feel more substantial. Or, perhaps I need to try this using two tea bags instead of one. I may try that next time.

Still, with a bit of spice and no sweetness, when you're craving something that...

I really like this one. It's sweet, smells nice, and has a robust flavor mixture that complements rooibos very well without overpowering it. I only wish the flavor was even more robust or even creamy. I bet this would make a lovely dessert tea if it was more creamy.

I'm still making up my mind about this tea. I think I may have over-brewed it slightly. Also, I added a little sugar, but think it may benefit from a little more. Also, I think it might be better cold, but this time I tried it hot.

Regardless, the apple smell isn't quite as strong as I was expecting/hoping, but it's...
