Rated 5 out of 5 by Chris154 As is should be
Several years ago, a friend brought me rooibos tea from the UK and I fell in love with it. It's hard to find stateside in this simple form, because many food manufacturers add flavors and other ingredients to it. This tea is pure rooibos red tea. It's correct and as it should be.

This is perhaps my Favorite flavor tea. It is bright and sharp. I drink it several times a week. I know there are a slightly higher quality versions, but this is Organic and the price is right. I would ALWAYS recommend this brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amarylis Rooibos Red Tea bags
I tried loose tea but prefer the bags hands down. This tea is from South Africa and is good hot or cold. The features that appeal to me is that it is organic, caffeine free, low in tannins with no oxalic acid. The bag is tucked in a little paper envelope that is easy to open and has a nice long string to hang over the top of my mug. It bring oodles of health benefits which can be easily found. Lastly, I like it best with a small amount of Trim Healthy Mamas sweetener which is available right here on Swanson's [THM 005].

Rated 5 out of 5 by Justsomeguy Try it
I wanted daily hydration and antioxidants. I drank Uncle Lee's Organic White tea for about six months (an excellent brand and great value), and over time, I became nauseated every day. I assumed it was from one of the new nutrients I was trying at the time. Turns out, green and white teas have tannins that can cause some of us irritation to our gut lining. I was pretty disappointed, since I had become used to the benefits. I returned to Swanson's, hoping for a replacement, and tried this. I now drink an entire pot every morning. It has an earthy flavor that took a few cups to get used to, but I added Alvita's Organic Licorice Root Tea, and sometimes Ginger/Peppermint (both great), and now I love it just plain. From the studies I read, there have been found no ill side effects from this tea, and the number of antioxidants is on par with that of green tea. I put 4 bags in my 12 cup stainless pot and unplug it as soon as its brewed. It doesn't get bitter like green tea if it's left on, but it's just habit. I,ve used more bags, but it tastes the same, so... Try it.

Possibly the best red tea I have ever had; rivals the more expensive brands. A great value. Very smooth.
It tastes very similar to black tea but honestly better in my opinion and almost has a finishing taste that, to me, is like honeysuckle.

I have used this product before and loved it. But this package had open product in the bottom of the tea bag. I guess that is why it was not as strong as before. I may try it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 Great tea!
This is an excellent tea at such a great price. I steep it in a 16oz mug and it does not taste watered down at all. Lots of flavor. Highly recommend.

I simply didnt like it...I prefer the smoother taste of English-type teas. Product is of great quality and value but if you're like me: Stick with the Brits!

Rated 5 out of 5 by thorfran tastes great
We have had other brands of red rooibos tea, and this one is excellent. We used the bulk rooibos, and it was not flavorful, even when using a lot of it. We brew the Swanson brand using two bags for 32 ounces of water.

The taste is very smooth. I can drop this tea bag into my mug and have it later for lunch and it does not taste like the bag or the tag! No paper taste- just tea. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LilySue Great Tea!
I was thrilled to find this tea! My husband cannot have any green teas, black teas, white teas, coffee, or coco mixes. This tea has a great "like coffee" taste, and allows him to have a nice cup of tea when he wants. We have been thrilled with the product. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kcosykrn12 very nice
I ordered this tea for the health benefits and curiosity. Tastes very good. Honestly there is not a big difference between this and some black teas. Maybe a tad stronger. Very nice for that afternoon pick me up or if you want a hot drink. I use some honey in mine for some sweetness. This is packaged nice in individual wrapped so you can toss it in your lunch or purse.

I love this tea. It has no bitter tannins like black tea. It's smooth and mild. I put a little Stevia in to sweeten it up. I drink this tea all day

Rated 5 out of 5 by Timtim Very good product
The first time I was introduced to rooibos tea was in Hong Kong by a therapist. It costed about 63 cents per bag. This tea by Swanson is priced much more reasonable and taste just as good. I am happy to have found this source.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jgirl Best rooibos I've tried!
As far as rooibos (red bush) teas go, this one is the best I've tried yet. Not everyone will love rooibos tea, but the Swanson brand organic one is pretty decent and better-tasting. Rooibos is said to be full of antioxidants, so it's good to drink at least for health reasons, and also good if you want a caffeine-free alternative to coffee. I actually like mixing this sometimes with black or green tea. I only wish it came in a sealed bag to maintain freshness as best as possible, like it used to.
