redleafroobiosbourbon.jpgAs rooibos tea goes, Red Leaf's Rooibos Bourbon is quite tasty. However, as far as flavored rooibos tea goes, this tea fails to deliver. I immediately assumed that the tea would bear some Bourbon whiskey type flavor, but then after reading the Red Leaf description, I realized that the this tea was flavored with vanilla. Regardless, this was like drinking a cup of plain rooibos tea. I know that if I had tasted this as part of a blind taste test, I would have concluded that this was an unflavored rooibos. Fortunately, the rooibos base was of high enough quality that I still enjoyed the tea. I added a splash of sugar to see if that would help me be able to discern the vanilla flavor any better. While the sugar did make the brew into a wonderfully sweet caffeine-free dessert treat, I still could not taste a strong vanilla element. The bottom line: not a bad tea, by any means, but certainly not the best vanilla-flavored rooibos I have tried.
