The Business of Blends
One area we have been diving into more at The Tea Table is the craft of blends. While we have always offered our own flavored blends, in the last couple years we have ventured further into unflavored ones.
Bourbon Street Vanilla Rooibos Tea
With a robust vanilla flavor, Bourbon Street Vanilla Rooibos makes for a very satisfying brew! Contains choice-grade rooibos, natural bourbon vanilla flavor, almond flakes and calendula petals in a base of rooibos tea. Caffeine-free. Use 1 tsp. per cup and steep 5-10 minutes in freshly boiled water.
Rooibos (pronounced "roy bus") is made from the needle-like leaves of a caffeine-free bush native to South Africa. It is oxidized like black tea, and is a popular alternative to decaffeinated black tea. Good both hot and cold, it has a mild flavor and won't turn bitter with extended brewing.

Yuck. Tastes like vanilla flavored tobacco

The first time I brewed this, I was unimpressed, I just made another cup today and love it. I added a little rock sugar to it, which, may have brought out the flavors.
The tea was alright; it was not really what I expected. In my opinion, the vanilla taste is hardly detectable, I was expecting it to be a bit more prominent. The rooibos itself is very tasteful, the vanilla is just lacking.

If you love vanilla, you'll love this smooth delicious tea. No bitterness, just a pleasant vanilla taste. I use Agave as a sweetener, and it actually helps ignite the flavor of this tea [actually all of the teas]; giving it just a nice light sweet glow on the tastebuds! So, if vanilla is your thing, you won't be disappointed. This tea is good if you mix it with the Roman Provence, as well!!! Enjoy!
Rooibos in my opinion isn't all that strong so the vanilla and bourbon flavor really show in this tea. Makes for an interesting decaf iced tea!
