Organic Blood Orange Rooibos Herbal Tea Blend from Trader Joe's

Style: Flavored Rooibos – Region: Blend

71 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jun. 17th, 2021

With a name like this, I certainly didn't expect anything but orange flavor. However, this is the rare tea I've tried where the dry-bag, in-cup and wet-bag scents all were *much* stronger on the main flavoring than the actual taste. That's not necessarily a bad thing in this case, as all three modes of inhalation yi...

It's hard to rate this product because it doesn't sit still, even though it has just three stated ingredients: rooibos, vanilla flavoring, and vanilla bean. The quality and flavor seemed to vary a lot over time, within a given cup. Overall, it's a decent representative of flavored rooibos, and at times presents itse...

Jan. 1st, 2020

Chocolate and peppermint are two of my favorite flavors in all this mighty land. As such, I'm a major sucker for trying such teas, even expensive ones like this or Harney & Sons. So I grabbed a tin* of the R of T version at a local World Market, as a minor Christmas present to myself.

The dry-bag and wet-bag ar...

Apr. 14th, 2019

Too bad this tea has been discontinued, because it's an acceptable (not great to the point of blowing one's mind, but pretty decent) take on rooibos/herbal blending. As with other rooibos teas I've tried, the first impression wasn't anything to brag about, but it grew on me after a few bags, and I came to appreciate i...

Rooibos Vibrations from Allegro

Style: Rooibos Chai / Spiced Rooibos – Region: Blend

74 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 14th, 2018

The dry-bag* and in-cup scents were robust and screamed "chai", which is great since I enjoy such tea. Cinnamon and cardamom stood obvious, cloves and black pepper being apparent with some concentration, the other ingredients a good deal less so. Even though ginger is the second ingredient (behind rooibos), I only co...

Mar. 5th, 2018

My first impression of this tea's flavor was shockingly wretched: an overwhelming impression of stale coffee and mud, with some orangey/cinnamon hint buried beneath. I asked, "How can this tea possibly be so nasty with such a delicious-looking ingredients list?" It contains: rooibos, cinnamon, ginger root, orange pe...

Coconut Macadamia Herbal from Hawaiian Islands Tea Company

Style: Flavored Rooibos – Region: Blend

55 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 10th, 2018

Being a big fan of that taste, this is the third coconut-flavored tea I've tried and reviewed, and the weakest of them all.

All I saw in the dry bag was rooibos, no evidence of real coconut or macadamia pieces. This steeps up like every other decent rooibos: a nice reddish color, with rooibos itself being the over...

Sep. 25th, 2017

A savory-looking roster of ingredients (rooibos, chicory, "natural flavor", rose hips, cinnamon, lemongrass, peppermint, chamomile, ginger root, anise seed, orange oil, orange peel) persuaded me to buy a box on sale at Wal Mart. Immediately upon extracting the bag from its wrapper, I wondered if someone had left open ...

86 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 24th, 2017

For some reason, I've had a hard time assigning high values to teas lately, being on a remarkable run of sampling products hovering within +/- 20 percentage points of mediocrity. Not anymore! This one's a clear winner, folks.

While not the strongest chai I've had, it's more than potent enough to offset straight ...

This is quite close to Murchie's "Cozy Caramel Rooibos" for the tastiest African redbush tea I've had so far. I got this earlier today from a kiosk in the Portland airport, where the clerk dropped two decent-sized sachets of this in a large cup for me. Never even heard of it before...

The floral and vanilla levels...

Cozy Caramel Rooibos from Murchie's Tea & Coffee Ltd

Style: Flavored Rooibos – Region: Blend

87 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 4th, 2016

As noted in my review of Trader Joe's rooibos, its earthy, haystraw-like flavor was something of a turn-off at first, but grew on me with time. This strongly flavored rooibos from Murchie's, which uses apple pieces and calendula petals as well as caramel flavoring, bypasses the "grow on you" stage and thrusts itself s...
