Snapple Straight Up Tea- sorta sweet rooibos
I discovered a new Snapple and I think I like it. Now, it's no Snapple Peach, but it is still good. You can definitely taste the rooibos in the tea. Rooibos teas almost have a carmel taste to them. Give it a try and let me know what you think!!!!
Rooibos is not technically "tea" - at least that is what the purest say. And I am not a purest, so I consider it and herbal teas still teas. White/green/yellow/oolong/black tea is all made from the leaves from the camellia sinensis plant. The end product simply depends on how long the leaves have been fermented. Rooibos (pronounced roy-boss) or Red Bush on the other hand is a completely different plant grown in the Western Cape Province. The leaves are actually green but turn red when oxidized.
