Rooibos tea is something that I haven’t tried a lot of, though the stuff I have had has been quite enjoyable. This is a strongly vanilla-flavored tea, though it still has a lot of the woodiness and just a pinch of smoke that I’ve come to expect. The body of this tea is full, round, and smooth. Plus, since it doesn’t have any caffeine, it’s well suited for drinking at night or in the afternoon. I wouldn’t recommend steeping for more than 5 minutes, not because of any astringency or bitterness, but because otherwise the vanilla really takes over the drink and makes the taste a lot simpler and sweeter.
I do enjoy this plain, but drinking this with just a hint of milk or cream makes an extremely cozy beverage, perfect for cold winter afternoons.
