Having already reviewed the Green and Black varieties of Azafrans bagged Saffron based teas I've finally gotten around to trying the "red tea" which I assume is Rooibos, and not one of the lighter black teas. I couldn't really see the Saffron in the bag, but due to its expense and potency its rarely used abundantly, and the few thin red threats could easily be lost amongst the leaves of bright red Rooibos. I brewed the bag for about five minutes in an attempt to open up both the flavors of the Rooibos and the Saffron, and did get a pretty strong Saffron aroma from doing so.

Drinking the brew I found it at once to be the most Saffron Flavored of the three, and the least potent. The flavor was fairly mild, but it did include both the Saffron and the Rooibos as components as apposed to a slight hint of the Saffron. Because of its sweet low-tannin nature, Rooibos is perfect for bringing out mild or timid flavors, much in the same way GoldSchlogger brings out the loud and destructive person in any woman you take to a college party. Its still not really a blend I would personally reach for in a time of thirst, but if it were on the table with some less savory bagged options I'd probably go its way.
