I drink a fair amount of this, it's probably the Mighty Leaf tea that I drink most often because I tend to visit a cafe that serves their teas in the evening, and it's by far my favorite of their caffeine-free herbal teas.

I sometimes compare it to the African Sunset which is sold by Two Leaves Tea, similarly a flavored rooibos or rooibos blend where the rooibos is dominant, but there are other flavorings. These teas are also both in a similar price range. However, besides that they're pretty different; whereas Two Leaves' is a little edgy, lemony, and crisp, Mighty Leaf's African Nectar is smoother and fruitier, also with a floral scent.

The flavoring is not overdone in this tea, I think it blends very well. I appreciate too that the flavoring is primarily aromatic too, the flavor is more like rooibos and is not overly tangy.

I recommend this one, it's one of my favorite tea bags yet, sold by Mighty Leaf.

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 neither overwhelm the rooibos nor are dominated by it, achieving an ideal balance. I suspect this was recommended by taste tests undertaken at the behest of marketing consultants, but such endeavors have misfired before when offering new products (remember New Coke?). Regardless, the body is rich and robust, the color deep, and the taste sweet and smooth. I'll be on the lookout for more of this pleasant blend.

Firstly, let me preface this by saying that I HATE Roiboos. But for a roiboos-based blend this one is tolerable (so most people I bet will like it). Smells very sweet - and has a vanilla taste to it that makes it palatable.

I had this at an event and would never purchase a box. Blargh!

This is one of my go-to rooibos blends when I need to take a teabag with me somewhere. I have always enjoyed rooibos on its own, but this blend adds a nice fruity flavor that rounds out the rooibos quite well. This also makes a superb iced tea and a great intro to the world of rooibos.

Aside from this tea smelling like cough syrup, I thought it was pleasant. While the taste was sweet, it was not overwhelming, and I actually liked the fruity flavor (I'm not usually a fruity tea fan!). I'm also of course a big fan of this tea being organic. Overall I liked this tea, I just wish it smelled a little nicer!

This is a nicely mellow tea. I like it as an unwinding tea. It is very smooth with absolutely no tartness or bitterness to it. A great red tea for me, and I'd recommend it to others wanting to experience red tea.

I am a fan of Rooibos. I love all teas, but there is something about Rooibos that is more appealing to me. Perhaps it is my sweet tooth, which appreciates the natural sweetness of Rooibos, or perhaps it is because Rooibos tends to blend with so many “sweet” flavours such as Caramel and Vanilla. Whatever it is, I am a fan....
