Explorer's Rooibos Herb Tea - Explorers trekking to the remote mountains of South Africa were introduced to Rooibos, an herb the locals had been enjoying as red tea. The herb rooibos has been blended with a delicious mélange of other herbs and spices: orange peel, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom seed, anise seed, black pepper and cloves.
Steeping red tea is easy. Simply heat fresh, filtered water to a rolling boil. Then pour water over tea and steep for 5-7 minutes if using a tea bag or full-leaf.

Love this tea cold! It has taste and no sugar -- save the calories for something else, and no caffeine -- can drink it anytime of day.

I was so excited to find a chai tea that was caffeine-free - this one doesn't disappoint!
Tasty spice tea

I am well pleased with the flavor of this delightful tea. I particularly pleased with the fact that when fully brewed, there is no need to add sugar or honey for sweetness.
Excellent flavor/spice heat combo

I was looking for a late night tea when I am craving a cup of tea, but want no caffeine. I thought I would try a chai, and was surprised at how absolutely wonderful the flavor of it is. There is also a small amount of "heat" to it, due to the pepper, but it is exactly right for me. This has become my very favorite tea. I ordered my second tin of loose leaf, and three other tins as Christmas gifts for my tea-loving sister-in-law and daughter-in-laws.

I agree with the other reviewer who said it was a bit too spicy - not sure what it was that I didn't like (nutmeg? cardamom?) but I'm glad I only sprang for a trial size. The can is cute, though.
Yummy and Spicy

Yummy and spicy. Great with a bit of rock sugar and almond milk. VERY peppery so if you don't like that kind of spice, try the Rainforest Tea-it's very similar but lacks the zing.

This is a great partner to the Merchant's Green Chai. I mix two parts green chai to one part red chai, and it is delicious!!
a little much at first, but good till the end

My friend got this for me for my birthday along with a tea press mug, and at first I didn't know how to use it, or drink it. I like tea, but I don't like coffee. Something just doesn't taste as good about coffee.
But when I tried this, it was shocking how powerful it was! It is spicy, but it is not intollerable. The flavor is amazing when brewed at about 7-8 minutes. I have gotten used to it within the last day or so, and I now LOVE it. It is very relaxing and I for a girl who likes spice, but also love sweetness, drinking this hot any time of the day hits the spot! WONDERFUL! :D
Good but VERY spicy

Good flavor but very very spicy, almost too spicy, leaving a slow burn like after taste in my mouth and stomach...thank goodness they offer the trial tester size, if unsure this size is your best bet!!
nice aroma and flavor

nice robust flavor right to the end

One of the best chai teas I've tasted. I'm hooked. I switch to this one in the evenings and drink the black chai through the first 1/2 of the day. Great flavor.
