Great Taste, Good Value
Reviewed in Canada on November 4, 2020
Finding unflavoured rooibos has been getting harder for me at the local grocery chains, so I was glad I could find it online at a decent price. I went without my favourite herbal tea/tisane for a long time before I was able to get this. Twinings Rooibos doesn't exactly have the strongest flavour compared to a certain store brand I've alternated it with in the past, but it does have the greater *depth* of flavour between the two, so there's that.
As someone with a longstanding tendency to forget I even have a hot drink until it gets cold (usually while working), it's nice to have something that goes down very quickly and smoothly for me. That problem hasn't happened for me at all for the last couple of weeks, though this is partially thanks to the fact I've started using filtered water lately (it literally tastes so much better I apparently can't stop drinking it).
Meant to add when posting this review that the packaging on Twinings' line of teas and tisanes/herbals is unfortunately somewhat wasteful with the cellophane wrapping outside. I suspect this is to preserve freshness (?) but don't the shiny, seemingly impermeable individual bags already do that?
