Rated 2 out of 5 by rozen88 great price, didn't seem fresh
I compared Frontier's and Starwest's rooibos side by side after usually buying Frontier's, and I have to say, Frontier's tasted better. I detected notes of staleness, even ever so slight mold. Of course batches vary, but just noting. Rooibos is super healthy (I swallow the leaves, too, after I'm done drinking the tea) and to be able to get such high quality rooibos so economically in these bulk bags is a great gift.

I have a cup of rooibos every night with loose leaf chamomile to help me unwind and relax. I'm on my second bag and I feel like it has helped.

This is the only Rooibos Tea I have had so I cannot compare. I do, however, thoroughly enjoy this tea. Hot tea has always been my beverage of choice, until now. I like the earthy, and maybe even wood-like taste! I drink it plain, but a hint of vanilla and/or stevia might be good, as well. I have almost used the whole bag (which I nicely poured into a glass mason type quart jar), and keep looking at it, realizing that I don't want to run out! Now, that IS saying something, for this frugal gal!

The Swanson Organic is much better. I found this bitter and bland. So much so, that I threw it in the trash rather than drink it.

Rooibos tea has fifty times more anti oxidants then Green Tea. And if you add Vanilla flavor with a dash of cinnamon it will taste exactly like the Starbucks Vanilla Rooibos. It only takes 1/4 cup of Rooibos tea in a 12 cup size coffee pot to brew a delicious pot. It drinks well cold or hot. Serve it either way. I like it both ways hot or cold but I prefer it hot.

I really like that tea - it tastes like regular lipton tea, and it's healthy!

I'd never tried rooibos tea before ordering this product from Swanson. I was going to get a smaller package to try it out and see if I liked it before buying a 1lb bag, but the smaller packages of tea bags were nearly as expensive as this 1lb bag was, so I went ahead and ordered the big bag. I was not disappointed at all. This stuff tastes great! And this bag will last me a long long time.

I have tasted different kind of rooibos tea and overall, if I have to take into account the taste, the quality and quantity vs the price, I say this is a great value. The Teavana rooibos tea is my favorite but I drink a lot and $20 for 4oz is too much for me. For me, organic is a must.
For my kids, I make a big jar of iced tea with it, I add a little bit of lemon and honey or agave nectar and they love it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by nutty4health The one pound bags are a great value (if you like something), and we love most of the Starwest products, but none of us care for this tea. It is just an odd bitter flavor. I don't like to waste anything, but I am having a hard time talking myself into drinking any more of this tea, and no one else in the family will touch it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by healthyishappy A bit bitter
I was looking for a more economical alternative to Choice organic rooibos, which I love. I find this to be a bit bitter in comparison, and I don't particularly enjoy drinking it. Had I not poured it into a glass jar and discarded the original packaging, I would probably return it. I am forcing myself to use it up before I go back to Choice, but it is slow-going. Not a bad tea, and for all I know this is a top notch rooibos. I'm no rooibos aficionado. But personally I find the Choice brand agrees with me better. I also prefer Choice to the Swanson brand, which I tried some months ago. Swanson's was cheaper but not as nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gm44 wonderful flavor - this Roiboos
this tea - has a wonderful flavor and it is such a good price. I have paid so much more for less of this tea and I use 1 tsp. in a small pot and add boiling water..let steep for 5- 10 minutes...and then can drink it warm and cold also all day long.
Such a beneficial drink - I prefer this to green tea and is an antioxidant tea as well.
