Teabag sipdown take 3… This also came as a free sample with the RoT catalogue, although I can’t remember how long ago, but I’m pretty sure this is 2-3 years old.
Four years ago I drank the heck out of this tea at work, although it took me a long time to acquire a taste for it. I loved it because it was pretty much impossible to over-steep which is great for when I got caught on the phone and forgot about my tea. I generally understeep it a bit so the vanilla flavor stays strong and I don’t taste as much of the rooibos. Just a personal preference, I’m still trying to acquire a taste for rooibos, even all these years later. Even when steeped properly this is heavy on the vanilla and really sweet.
This does remain one of my favorites from RoT, but isn’t one I’ve had in a long time. It was nice to revisit an old favorite and see just how my tastes have changed over the years.
I used to drink SO much RoT! I still really like a few of their blends, even though most of their stuff is underwhelming.
