Republic of Tea Organic Rooibos Reviewed

The Republic of Tea Cedarberg Organic RooibosI brought home a small packet of Republic of Tea’s Cedarberg Organic Red Full-Leaf recently from Central Market. I’ve come to truly appreciate the taste of rooibos since I first tried it over a year ago. It’s no doubt an acquired taste that holds no appeal to my wife and other family members when served hot.

The good thing about rooibos (aka red bush) is it won’t over steep. Absolutely no bitterness will result — just more flavor. It’s also caffeine free, so you can enjoy it after dinner.

Republic of Tea’s organic rooibos doesn’t deliver quite the psychedelic mouth experience that I found in Adagio’s Rooibos. It’s a mellower, more rounded brew with a hint of vanilla sweetness paired with minty earthiness. I enjoy it with or without milk.

If you don’t like it hot, you may still appreciate it over ice or paired with other flavor additives.

Aroma: Sweet, fruity, earthy, minty, vanilla
Body: Full
Flavor: Smooth
Color: Dark reddish amber
