Smooth vanilla rooibos tea is a regular caffeine alternative of mine, though I will admit that red rooibos can be an acquired taste.
If overstepped, it can have medicine-like tones, but in a best case scenario, the rooibos has notes of caramel and nuts. Cloud Nine from Autumn Bear Herbals is driven by its vanilla rooibos base, though the ingredient list boasts a larger variety of flavors: sour jujube seeds, fragrant rose petals, lush chrysanthemum blossoms, and more.
The dry leaf is strongly scented with vanilla and rooibos, and looks bright and beautiful in the bag with rose petals and giant chrysanthemum blossoms. Brewed, the blend is still dominated by vanilla rooibos, though as the tea cools, more of the sour fruit and floral flavors are able to shine through.
This herbal blend will be a favorite for lovers of rooibos or when you need a decaf vanilla cup for a calming evening.

Hydrate from AB Herbals (Autumn Bear) is one of those tisanes that I was drawn to for one very small reason…Chia Seeds! I know it sounds weird but that is the sole reason I was excited to try this blend of herbs! I mean…how many times do you see whole chia seeds in teas/tisanes? Not often. I’m a bit of a chia seed nut! I love the lil guys! They are truly a super food! They aren’t much for taste but I absolutely love what they do! They promote hydration, maintains electrolyte balance, and optimizes body fluids.
Other ingredients in Hydrate from AB Herbals (Autumn Bear) include peppermint, skullcap, and lemon peel.
Did you know…peppermint relaxes the muscles, reduces stress and anxiety, aids digestion by optimizing metabolism, alleviates stomach pain and bloating and detoxifies the Liver. Skullcap relaxes the nervous system, relieves anxiety, reduces muscle tension, soothes feelings of uneasiness, inhibits paranoia. Lemon Peel is an anti-inflammatory that soothes digestion, flushes out toxins and tones the Liver.
But what about the taste of this tisane? Well, it’s a pepped up peppermint that is for sure! Which I LOVE. The lemon peel is a nice addition. The skullcap just gives it a bit more contrasting herb, I think.
Because I LOVE LOVE LOVE any kind of mint and LOVE that this has Chia Seeds in it I have to say it was everything I had hoped for…and more! YUM!
