Tetley Red Bush Tea
Advantages: Its a nice sweet tea
Disadvantages: you either love it or hate it
Redbush tea is made from the rooibus plant which is grown in South Africa it's a popular tea in Africa and now consumed in many countries.
I usually like to have variety of teas instead of sticking to black tea. I've tried many fruity and herbal flavours so I'm up for trying anything.
I recently discovered redbush tea when I found a sample in the cupboard which my mother must have got some time ago and left forgotten. The first thing I noticed was the red packaging of the sample it was very eye catching and attractive it instantly made me want to put the kettle on.
Redbush tea compliments sugar or honey well and you don't really need to add too much of it considering I have quite a big sweet tooth that's a good thing. This tea has a really nice natural sweet flavour and on the plus side it is caffeine free so if you just want something sweet, hydrating and warm to drink this is a good option. With this tea you can leave the teabag in without worrying about it being to strong as it is naturally light in flavour.
I guess redbush is like marmite considering there's a mixture of love and hate reviews here. So if you're personally planning to try it, I recommend you get a sample if you can. I know the redbush tea company give samples still however I don't know if there's any difference from the Tetley variety. You really need to try it for yourself to know what redbush tea tastes like.
Another recommendation is do not buy the vanilla redbush. After finishing my samples I decided to go and get a proper box of redbush tea and made the mistake of getting redbush tea vanilla flavour because it looked like it would taste a bit nicer. Even though the flavour is not unpleasant I feel it ruins the true redbush flavour.
Overall I love this tea however I won't be buying the vanilla flavour again!
Summary: A sweet tasting and hydrating tea
