Drink Me: Teavana, Rooibos Tropica

A few months ago, one of the members of my Wednesday night knit group brought me a sample of some Teavana Rooibos Tropica tea that she had bought her son for Christmas.  I’m happy to say that even though I’ve decided I’m not a rooibos enthusiast, this blend was really tasty!

From the website, Rooibos Tropica is a blend of red and green rooibos, peach, strawberry, and rhubarb with rose buds and marigold petals.

It is available from Teavana in the following sizes: 2oz for $5.98, 4oz for $11.96, 8oz for $23.92, 1lb for $47.84, 2lb for $143.52 and 4lb for $239.20.

When I first opened the bag I smelled a strong, sweet fruity smell.  Once brewed it still smelled fruity and tropical.   It tasted sweet – definitely of strawberries and rhubarb, with a bit of the creamy rooibos flavor beneath, but it wasn’t overwhelming. This is another one I can see as a sweet dessert tea, or an iced tea on a hot day.
