Not normally a fan of Rooibos teas, but I like this a lot.
Thank you for your review, Bill. We hear similar sorts of feedback from customers about Rooibos. It is super good for you and - to many --has a great flavor!
I prefer a stronger Roobios component.
It's not often that we get a review for this rooibos that doesn't have a full 5 stars attached to it. May we suggest that you try it again, but use a bit more? That might heighten the flavor. Thank you!
Vanillalicious tea! Smooth and tasty.
Thanks, Ariana. It sounds like you found another personal favorite!
