Vanilla Rooibos Tea Giveaway!

12-16-09n4

In case you have never heard of it, Rooibos (pronounced “roy-boss”) is a tisane (herbal tea) made from the needle-like leaves of a bush which is native to Africa. It contains antioxidants, and is caffeine free. It became popular in the West during World War II when black tea from Asia was difficult to get.

The little Tea & Gift Shoppe in town sells many varieties of this delicious tea. Yesterday, I braved the below-zero temperature to obtain two varieties of Rooibos – Caramel Creme and Vanilla. Today, I would like to share some Vanilla Rooibos with you!

    What a lovely giveaway! I must say that I generally like hot tea better. we like to use different herbal combination so that it not only tastes good but is healing to our body. But, every now and then I like a good coffee or hot chocolate.

    I like tea the best! Thank you!

  61. annalene says:

    My favorite hands down is tea, its something that I never get tired of and can drink at any time of the day. Its also even more perfect in the winter. I’ve mostly stuck to the same varieties of tea my whole life, so it would be nice to try something new. Thank you so much for the giveaway!

  62. Vicki Wurgler says:

    I would pick Tea

  64. Peggy in Alaska says:

    Wow, that is a hard question! It all depends on the occasion. Favorite bedtime beverage would be Decaf Constant Comment tea (which is the only tea I’ve drank for so long that it might be time to try something new…) and for early morning or lazy days a cup of coffee freshly brewed from just ground beans w/ a touch of raw sugar, real cream, and maybe a touch of homemade hazelnut extract or a pinch of vanilla sugar.

  73. Rachel says:

    My favorite hot beverage of all times is a nice, hot cup of tea. I enjoy it several times a day – in the morning with breakfast, coming home after work and in the evening with my husband. The vanilla rooibos sounds delicious – I would love to try it!

  74. In a bid to get off caffeine, but still consume hot drinks I switched to Rooibos. I love the flavoured variety…vanilla, orange etc
