Good Morning tea lovers.
Today’s review is for Vanilla Rooibos from Dragonfly.
I saw this as I was strolling through my local herbal store.
I wanted to look for a caffeine free tea with a hint of flavour.
This looks like it will fit perfectly.
If you didn’t know I am a massive lover of Vanilla so I am sure this will be very enjoyable as it has the natural extract of Bourbon Vanilla.
Dragonfly advise that you leave the teabag in the cup to brew for 3-4 minutes.
I prepare my kettle for boil.
Whilst boiling I take a moment to savour the teas aroma.
I pull out a teabag from the box and I cannot believe how much aroma fills my nose. The scent inside the teabag is absolutely delightful.
The scent is typical of Rooibos but there is an exquisite aroma of lovely, creamy, sweet vanilla.
My kettle has now boiled so I pour over the hot liquid and let the tea infuse.
The liquor in my cup turns a reddish/golden hue straight away.
4 minutes later and my tea is now ready.
I can honestly say out of all the teas I have sampled in the past this is the one that I will remember for having an exceptional aroma.
I take a sip of the tea and it tastes exactly how it smells.
The tea is creamy, sweet, dry, flavoursome and most importantly very refreshing.
I am thoroughly pleased with this tea and I will certainly be buying it again.
Dragonfly describes this tea as-
Unbelievably delicious. Soothing rooibos blended with the smooth, creamy taste of real Bourbon Vanilla from Madagascar. A ‘no-calorie’ pudding.
All Dragonfly rooibos teas are still cured in the traditional way, as it was when Benjamin Ginsberg founded rooibos. The process takes place in the crisp air of the Cedarberg Mountains of South Africa’s Cape. It requires great skill to know when the cure is at its peak; one sign is that it begins to give off a delicious sweet aroma that attracts wild bees.
Dragonfly rooibos teas are naturally caffeine free, so they can be enjoyed at any time of day and are suitable for the whole family. Rooibos is rich in antioxidants and AHAs, long valued for fresh glowing skin, gently rehydrating and low in tannin.
Directions: Add freshly boiled water and allow to brew for 3-4 minutes, according to taste. Add sugar or honey. With or without milk or as an iced tea.
Overall I would describe this tea as light, creamy and delicious anytime of the day.
