I bought some rooibos tea from Teavana, if anyone is familiar with them. Their samples tasted wonderful, so I wanted to take home some of the rooibos key-lime blend. Their rooibos tea was yellow! That was surprising, but what was more surprising was when I brewed my first cup. When you open the bag, the key-lime scent is overpowering and makes your mouth water. But when I brewed the rooibos, it was tasteless! I tried more amounts of it, I brewed it longer, but I could not get a taste out of this tea! I have never had a problem in the past with any tea. All of Teavana's rooibos tea is yellow instead of red. I know the plant is yellow, but when the leaves are fermented, don't they turn red? I was wondering if anyone knows why my tea is yellow, and if that would have anything to do with it's bland taste. And honestly, Teavana's herbal teas are tasteless too. I will never buy tea from them again.
