Vanilla Grapefruit Mint Rooibos

Rated 4.6 out of 5
Based on 79 reviews

Tastes Like: vanilla, ruby grapefruit, mint, clover honey
Feels Like: ethereal noise pop

This blend is a dazzling synesthetic experience where sound is like temperature and color has flavor. Warm and cool sensations move in textured rhythms. The tastes and scents wind and twist like shifting colors of an opal. With each sip, there is a dreamy dominant note. One moment, it’s pale yellow vanilla, then another, electric pink grapefruit. Another sip has bluish green mint, then brick-red earthy rooibos. Beauty is not always linear.

A tea for lovers of unusual herbal blends .

A bit too subtle

This is a very subtle tea and as the description mentioned, each sip highlighted a different note. Unfortunately the only notes that ever surfaced were the mint and vanilla. I could smell the grapefruit in the leaves but could never taste it. Disappointing.

Dreamy and lush and complex

In the mid-1990s there was a body-products store that let you create your own scent blend for your products. After testing every scent on the bar, I decided on an unorthodox mix of vanilla, mint, and pink grapefruit. The staffer asked me three times if I was sure. I said yes, and I loved that scent until those products were all used up. The store discontinued the custom-blending option shortly after and I never got that scent again.

When I opened the package on this tea, I got that EXACT SAME SCENT: a blend of warm sweetness from the vanilla, soothing freshness from the mint, and bright energizing citrus from the grapefruit. It sounds like it won't work, but it totally does--each note layering on the other for that complex blend of taste and feeling, with the rooibos serving as a gently woody base for all of it. It's dreamy and lush and full of complex notes, just like the music of the band that inspired this name. I love this tea and I love that it takes me back to a different sensory experience that I also loved.

A bit too much mint

The smell and taste of this tea is delicious and fresh but then it gets lost in all the mint-

Sunshine in a cup

When I opened the package I smelled bitter grapefruit and thought, oh no. But the taste of the brewed tea was very pleasant. I love mint tea and that was what I tasted first then a mellow vanilla flavor. It left me with a lingering sweet grapefruit aftertaste. It seems this would make a refreshing iced tea and can’t wait to try it. Thanks for a wonderful tea combo!

As juicy as it gets!

Zingy, citrusy yet mellow with the satisfying hint of vanilla. Great refreshing taste and odor profile, and I cannot wait to turn it into an iced jug this summer!
