Not my "cup of tea" October 30, 2014


Baltimore, MD

I am new to TROT, but not new to teas. Always been a huge fan of sweet iced tea. I stumbled upon TROT's website because I wanted to start drinking tea again for health reasons and to cut down on coffee. My order included Sunset Safari because it sounded delicious and got a lot of great reviews. Mild cinnamon and strong orange and clove musty aroma. Smelled better while steeping. Couldn't taste any cinnamon with sipping, but very strong clove and orange and a hint of lemon on the finish. Not a fan of the strong clove flavor. On the plus side, no bitterness whatsoever, so no sweetener needed. But, I added about 1/2 tsp of sugar anyway to improve the strong clove flavor. Not a tea I would order again.

This a great tea to cozy up with anytime of day or night since it's caffeine free. My husband is not much of tea drinker, but he's hooked on this one. He keeps a tin of it in his office to warm himself up all year long!

Tried other Rooibos' and enjoyed them but this one is the best. If you want to try Red Teas, try this one and save money. None better. It is creamy and smooth with a touch of citrus. Absolutely delicious. This will take the number one spot on my herbal shelf.

My favorite tea was Earl Grey, but no longer. Safari Sunset is by far the better tea.

This is our favorite tea, very flavorful but not overwhelmingly so. We were disappointed that our local gourmet shop could no longer carry it. We're glad we can get it through your website. Kudos to the Ministers of Orders and Supply.

Good Flavor December 19, 2012

I gave this tea only 4 stars because it is not as strong as I had expected for a tea with so many good flavors. Like the cloves and cinnamon. Otherwise, I still love this tea and enjoy it immensely.

I'm pleased you started offering this tea again because it was my favourite red tea. I'm not partial to vanilla or the other flavours in your other red selections. I think this tea works well hot or iced and with other retailers teas I can't say the same. Moreover, it lends itself well when I want to double brew a pot of tea without the flavour weakening, thank you so much for offering an excellent tea selection~

I have known about Rooibos (African Red Bush) for many years, not a new trend for me! I have tried numerous brands, and the Republic's is by far the best. Clean smooth taste, mellow blend. Perfect after a long day on the road. I am just surprised that many of my African friends do not drink it!

I fell in love with Red Tea years ago. I've never been a tea drinker, but one sip and I was hooked! It's wonderful whether hot or iced...I even drink it luke warm. I take a large jug it to work with me every day and sip on it all day long. The taste is sublime!!

Great Blend February 22, 2012



This is my favorite blend of teas. I will occasionally purchase other blends such as Earl Greyer or Irish Breakfast, however I always purchase the Safari in the 250 bag refill. Any other teas I only purchase the 36 bag can because I will drink 2-3 times more of the Safari than any other. The blend of red tea with the cinnamon, orange, and cloves is just strong enough yet mellow enough for a robust tea. I was brought up on very strong black tea. My great grandma would use 6 teabags to make a 3 cup pot of tea and let it seep for 5-10 minutes before serving. She would never allow us to use cream, sugar, or any other flavorings in our tea. Until I started drinking Safari, my husband always said that I burned my tea because of how strong I would make it. This tea has such a flavoring that you can seep it for 3 minutes or let the tea bag in and keep adding more bags each time I fill my mug and still get a great cup of tea.

When Wegmans no longer carried Safari Sunset I was really saddened. Then I discovered I could order on line. I ordered the 250 bulk package. I thought I'd grow tierd of it but no way. I just purchased my second bulk pack. I'm hooked!

I'm addicted to Safari Sunset! December 11, 2011


Guerneville, CA

After reading Alexander McCall Smith's "No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency" series I began searching for a really good red bush tea. (If you've read the books, you'll understand.) My daughter, who know I was on this search, gave me a tin of Safari sunset as a gift. I knew right away that this was the tea. It is so delicious, and smells absolutely wonderful. I drink it every day and can no longer be bothered to drink any other teas. When Republic of Tea discontinued it for a time I bought up every tin of it I could find in the stores and savored each cup. When I ran out I wrote a plea to bring it back and thank God they did! Perhaps I need an intervention?! ;-) This is the best tea ever!
