    Comments about Teavana Rooibos Tropica Rooibos Tea:

    I was so disappointed when shopping at Teavana to find my favorite tea was being discontinued and no longer available. I became a tea drinker because of this tea. I have tried other teas at Teavana but this is the only tea for me. It's a perfect morning tea but can be drunk any time. Please bring it back. I would hate to have to find another tea shop and find another favorite tea.

      Shame on Teavana

      By Very disappointed

      from Arlington VA

      Comments about Teavana Rooibos Tropica Rooibos Tea:

      We have been buying this tea for years. Sales associates would recommend others which we tried but nothing compared to Rooibos Tropica. Very disheartening that you would discontinue the best tea. Please bring it back so you don't lose a customer.

            We have been drinking Rooibos Tropica since we moved to Atlanta in 2002 and discovered Teavana. I heard its being discontinued! Teavana and Stabucks are you CRAZY?????? This is one of your most popular teas. you must have hired the person at Coke who decided to change Coke original. Bring it back please.

            I add to this tea Jasmine Dragon Pearls - it adds more zest.

            For Folks Who Like Floral Tea

            By Tea Yogini

            from Southern California

            Comments about Teavana Rooibos Tropica Rooibos Tea:

            I had never tried rooibos before tasting this infusion. I was really looking forward to this since I've read so many rave reviews online about how awesome red teas are...but to be honest, I despised my first sip. I initially thought, "This must be what a flowery bar of soap tastes like!"

            Then, I took a step back and thought about something I read about how the most revered traditional Chinese tea masters teach their students. Legend has it, they will take the most awful tea that they have and ask the protégé to find at least one redeeming quality about what they drank. If the student can't find one good thing about the tea, then the master will determine that the person is not ready to train to become a tea master and will not be allowed to sample "the good stuff."

            Keeping that in mind, I tried to keep an open mind and brewed another cup of Rooibos Tropica the next day. The surprising thing was that 2nd cup wasn't as bad as my 1st one.

            Personally, if a tea is going to be floral, I don't mind as long as it's very light and nuanced. But in general, flowery teas just aren't for me unless there's a vanilla flavor. I prefer my teas fruity, fragrant, creamy, or traditional. I thought I'd really like Tropica because of the fruit.

            All in all, I wouldn't go out and buy another 2 oz. bag of this stuff once finished, but now I'll at least be able to get through the rest of it without hating it.

            The fruity fragrance is quite nice, but the heavily floral flavor just wasn't for me. I'd say if you're really into floral tea, you'll probably love this stuff. But if not, take a pass on this. The only thing that saved this from being rated 1 star is the lovely smell--and half the tea drinking experience for me is the aroma.
