Thanks all for writing in, and hope you will enjoy rooibos soon if you haven't already. I'm a coffee drinker and usually find herbal teas to be wimpy, but rooibos tastes like nothing else and is so refreshing. It can be hard to find in grocery stores, although it seems to have become more mainstream in the past few years. Both Bigelow and Twinings brands have it in tea bags.

Thanks for the interesting and informative article, Gwen.
I've recently been searching for a great chai tea. The best I've found so far is Celestial Seasonings Sweet Coconut Thai decaf, which contains rooibos as its main ingredient. Have tried three other chais made with black tea, but they just didn't have the 'oomph' of C.S.'s. Not knowing any better, I thought the difference must be in their spice blends; but after reading your article, I realize it's probably the rooibos that makes the flavor more interesting to me. Now thanks to you, I'll be on the hunt for a "straight up", unflavored rooibos to try.

I think you'll find rooibos all by itself has plenty of flavor. Must say, though, you've just convinced me to try the Celestial Seasonings tea you've described -- I like chai teas and also love coconut. Thanks, midwest!
