I like this tea in the evening since it doesn't contain caffeine. I first received it in a sample tin and wasn't sure I'd like it but it really grew on me. It may seem strange, but the aroma and flavor remind me of cherry pipe tobacco - in a good way!

i love great coffee, but I go long periods of time when I give my system a break. Good Hope Vanilla is the best. I love the nutty sweet taste. I make it strong and add almond milk and a bit of Agave for latte, and the Ladies group raves over it, and I've served it both hot and iced! When my 94 year old father-in-law drinks it in the mornings, I don't tell him it is tea, and he just loves it, and says "this is some good coffee". I have tried other rooibos, but I really enjoy the full body richness and consistency of Good Hope Vanilla the most! I buy it in the 250 bag bulk size.
