Have you tried Vanilla Rooibos - Lotus Teabag Collection? Tell us what you think!
Years ago I bought vanilla rooibos from another tea seller, until it was discontinued. I was happy to find this flavour at Shanti Tea and even happier now that I have tried it. The vanilla flavour is not terribly strong, but it is there. You can tell you are not drinking plain rooibos tea. The tea is very smooth and pleasant to drink. The amount of tea in the teabag is okay, but when I switch to the loose tea I plan to try one and a half to two teaspoons to get a stronger flavour. The teabags themselves work well as there is room for the tea to move. Going forward, I will use the tin to store loose tea.
