Is there any other street in the United States that conjures up as many exotic images as does Bourbon Street in the heart of New Orleans’ French Quarter? From Voodoo to Jazz and Burlesque to Mardi Gras, Bourbon is the street where anything can, and does, happen. (Don’t believe it? Pick up a copy of A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole - considered by some to be the most accurate depiction of the French Quarter ever written. And it’s hilarious!) Or if you prefer, take a trip to New Orleans and experience the street for yourself.

It was during one such visit that our Master Taster came up with the idea for this blend. While perusing the shops of the French Quarter one evening, he caught a whiff of toasty Vanilla drifting from an alley. The smell was so hypnotizing he felt compelled to follow it and soon discovered that it was coming from a small makeshift voodoo shrine someone had constructed. He decided to capture the enticing character he had experienced and blend it with pure, caffeine free, South African Rooibos to reflect the African roots of the voodoo he had stumbled across. The result is an exceptionally smooth herbal tea with mysterious character and subtle notes of fresh vanilla. Enjoy a cup today.

Hot Tea:
Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose rooibos for each 7-9 oz (200-260 mL) of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the brew).

Iced Tea:
Makes 1 litre: Place 6 slightly heaping teaspoons of loose rooibos into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 1 1/4 cups (315 mL) over the rooibos. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the brewed rooibos into your serving pitcher straining the rooibos. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced rooibos is to increase the strength of the hot rooibos brew since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water.

One of the best vanilla rooibos loose leaf teas around Review by Barb
I drink a lot of loose leaf tea, and mostly it's rooibos, because it's naturally decaf. Plus I like the taste. Vanilla rooibos is my standard go-to cup, like some people regard English Breakfast or Earl Grey or Orange Pekoe. This version of vanilla rooibos is consistently one of the best tasting, and you can actually taste the vanilla in the blend (some brands I swear just wave the vanilla over the batch!). For a good quality tea like this one, $8/100 grams is a good price. (Posted on 5/19/14)
