vanilla rooibos herbal tea

For our unique Vanilla Rooibos tisane we have blended the finest natural vanilla flavor from Madagascar and Tahiti with South African Rooibos. The result is a tasty and aromatic drink with a reddish brown color and a slightly sweet and lingering vanilla flavor. It's a great drink hot or iced, with or without milk and sugar. Rooibos (pronounce roy-boss ) is an indigenous herb of South Africa that is made from the fine needle-like leaves of the Aspalathus linearis plant. It is harvested then left to oxidize before drying in the sun. During the plant's ripening process the leaves develop a reddish brown color, explaining why it was given its name "rooibos", or "Red Bush."
I was so disappointed in the quality of this tea. Low quality rooibos made for a not so great cup.
