The famed mild-yet-substantial Rooibos blends of South Africa make for transportive experiences no matter what other flavors find their way into the blend. This tea is instantly recognizable as rooibos – which makes for all the more fun and skill when blends are based on this red leaf. And when they work, there's little to match their fragrant plainlands richness. Honey and heat, air and aroma. Autumn below the Sahara. If that sounds like the ideal way to experience a lush, slyly complex tea, then you'll want to pay close attention to this singular rooibos. With the viscosity and warmth found only in rooibos, African Autumn takes its flavor collection to some unexpected places allowing for orange and cranberry to bring a citrus-sweet roundness to the flavor.
Naturally caffeine-free, this is a bracing tisanal that brings to mind the plainslands where the famous red bushes grow. The ingenuity of adding sweet orange and tart cranberry makes for a strident, if never overwhelming flavors. Striking and recognizable; this autumn rooibos begs to be added to the languid afternoon of anyone who has ever marveled at the beauty of open land: not to mention the infusion of its herbal sweetness into a misleadingly simple red leaf tea. Full in the mouth with only faint vegetal stringency, African Autumn's final notes will delight and tantalize for hours after the last sip has been savored. Don't let this Autumn pass by.
I had no idea this was the tea I'd been waiting for all my life until I tried it. When I think of enjoying a good book and a cup of tea, this is what I imagined the tea to taste like. Full of flavor without any of the acidity of black tea, a little sweet, a little fruity, and very autumnal. I had no idea what rooibos tea was until I stopped at Good Life Tea and now I can't wait to try the next variety.
Laurie, you may be interested to know that we now have a Rooibos Tea Tasters' sampler. It includes 6 different rooibos teas and is very reasonably priced. Sip on!
I used to purchase my teas from Teavana Tea store. I was upset when their stores closed and was checking to see if they had a store online when I stumbled across Good Life Tea. I placed my order and received my teas in less than a week. I absolutely love the African Autumn Rooiboos Herbal. It has a hint of citrus which smells and tastes wonderful. It reminds me of a favorite I used tp drink from Teavana Teas. So happy I decided to give Good Life Tea a try and the cute little notes inside of the teas was a nice surprise. I will be placing another order soon. Thank you for the three tea samples that was included with my order as well.
Thank you Doris! If you peruse our inventory online or in our store, you'll find many similar teas to what Teavana carried. There are some differences though as we don't have sugar in our teas and our prices are a whole lot more reasonable. We like to think it's more fun and educational to purchase from us, but you be the judge. We are pleased to have you as a customer!
I really like this tea, very unique, not sweet at all. Complex and complimentary flavors.
