TeaGschwendner Rooibush Eggnog

20Nov09

The folks at TeaGschwendner (don’t even ask me to start trying to pronounce that) were nice enough to send me a few sample packs of their Rooibush Eggnog (another way of saying eggnog rooibos) tea, which is a red caffeine-free tea with eggnog flavoring in it. They say to use a heaping teaspoonful in order to brew a good cup, but I just used one of the sample packs full (I assume there’s no difference). I boiled the water and used 8 ounces just like suggested, but was pretty disappointed. This is another one of those flavored teas that doesn’t at all taste authentic, and has the natural rooibos taste overpowered by the artificial-tasting flavorings. This type of tea seems to float the boat for some people, but not for me. You can pick up a tin yourself at their website and try it, and you may like it, but it just didn’t fit the bill for me.

Summary:
Cost: $2.24/oz
8/10
Taste: 3/10
Brew Time: 4-5 minutes
Brew Temperature: 212˚ Fahrenheit
