Taster’s Review:

The aroma of this tisane is so delicious.  It smells like strawberries and vanilla cream!

The flavor is quite nice too.  The strawberry and vanilla flavors seem pretty evenly matched.  I don’t really taste one over the other, and I’d say I get an even amount of strawberry and vanilla flavor in each sip.  What I don’t get a lot of is the flavor of the rooibos… but you won’t hear me complain about that.

Oh, sure, I can taste a hint of nutty flavor in the background, and it is a distinctly “rooibos” flavor, but, it is not a strong presence.  The strawberry has a sweet with just a hint of tart taste, and the vanilla is soft and creamy.

For best results with this tisane, I recommend steeping it in a Libre tea glass like my Libre Glass n’ Poly Mug.  I just put a couple of heaping teaspoons of the rooibos into the main chamber of the mug, add the boiling water, and let it steep for eight minutes.  Then I screw the filter lid on tight, and let the fine mesh of the lid strain the tea as I sip (and not ONE of the uber-thin, needle-like leaves of the rooibos slipped through).

Using this method allows the rooibos to continue to steep as I sip.  Since rooibos has very little tannin, it doesn’t become bitter if you steep it a long time.  It just gains flavor!  By the time I was halfway through my cup of this tisane, the flavor was intense and very yum.
