Review of Rooibos

6 of 104 of 54 of 567 of 100
GoodGoodGood Value

I thought this was an unusually high-quality rooibos for a simple, reasonably priced tea bag.

Rich earthy aroma, with some complexity; I detect the faint hint of vanilla and fruitiness that is the hallmark of good rooibos. This is on par with much of the loose-leaf rooibos that I've tried. Full-bodied, strong, and low astringency. All-around quality.

I still would prefer loose-leaf for reasons of sustainability, but I think this would be a good choice if you do want rooibos in tea bags. It is also organic and fair trade certified, and at $5 a box, it's cheaper than other organic and fair trade brands offering comparable quality.
