2nd Infusion: Didn’t do since is bagged
Chilled: Didn’t do
Little Yellow Teapot: I took a back seat on the test of these 5 samples. They come in string-and-tag-bags, so my humans steeped directly in the teacup.
On with the review:
This is the 3rd of 5 samples of “teas” (actually, herbal infusions) made with rooibos (redbush). Another rooibos-based drink developed as a healthier, caffeine-free alternative to sodas and real teas (made from the tea plant, Camellia Sinensis). Hubby and I kept that in mind during the taste test.
Made with rooibos, natural honey, and vanilla flavor (contains soy lecithin), this is a fairly flavorful brew. We steeped it for 5 minutes per the directions on the package. One thing we noticed is that as it cools, it takes on a mild flavor similar to root beer or Dr. Pepper.
As tasty as this is, we think it’s too bad that it comes in a bag (misnamed as a sachet), not loose. Nevertheless, the aroma when you first pull the bag out of its wrapper is pleasant and carries through to the steeped liquid.
We deducted a half teapot for the organic nonsense (it just reduces acreage production and raises prices) and a half teapot for the company calling this a “tea” instead of an herbal infusion.
