My first introduction to this tea was years ago -- I was sick with a bad cold/flu combo and went to the cafe at our local (now long gone) Borders. The gal behind the counter recommended this to help me get better. It helped greatly. I bought a can of the tea, took it home, and every time one of us got sick, we had it and it sped our recovery along or worked as a preventative. From then on, I was sold on rooibos tea.
I've had others. And they didn't work. At all. They tasted okay but I never felt any better drinking them. And none of them taste as good as Good Hope Vanilla.
I'm back to Good Hope Vanilla ONLY for our rooibos tea option. Not only is it delicious (especially with honey), but our whole family was feeling "off", I made a big pot, we all had a couple of cups, and suddenly everyone felt well again.
It's also great if you feel wonderful and just want to have something delicious. An excellent tea with a wonderful fragrance.
