Raspberry Vanilla Rooibos

Raspberry Vanilla Rooibos from TeaDesire

Ingredients: Redbush Tea, raspberry pieces, raspberry-vanilla flavour and taste

This tea has a little bit of everything I love. Vanilla, raspberry, and tea!! So, it was obvious that I had to try it.

I definitely recommend a high steeping time for this tea (even longer than five minutes) to get the full potential of the flavour. And it is a pretty awesome flavour.

Judging by the smell, I was expecting it to taste mostly of flavouring and gunk, but no. The flavour high-note is the natural woody-ness of the rooibos. You definitely still taste the creamy raspberry flavouring, but the tea is the centre-piece of the flavour, which is always excellent.
And vanilla just works with rooibos!

If you are a rooibos fan, it is definitely worth giving a try. 

 The only downside is that the raspberry and vanilla totally could have been natural and made this tea taste even better. More raspberry pieces, please!

Happy Steeping,
