As winter gets nearer and the temperatures begin to drop, I find myself continuously in search for nice, warm comfort foods. Unfortunately, this often also means packing on a few pounds, as most traditional comfort food is not exactly diet friendly, so I drink a lot more tea. As a devout green tea fan, I rarely ventured over to the more flavorful teas that are out on the market, but scanning the supermarket aisles and seeing the amazing varieties of teas that Celestial Seasonings has, I decided to try something new.
I settled in on Celestial Seasonings Madagascar Vanilla Red Rooibos Tea, partially because it sounded amazing, and admittedly, because of the cute lion drinking the cup of tea on the front. According to Celestial Seasonings, "Rooibos (or red tea) is naturally sweet and has a slightly nutty flavor with hints of cherry and toffee. In Madagascar Vanilla Red, pure Rooibos is perfectly complemented by the rich flavor of sweet, creamy vanilla resulting in a sublime and satisfying tea experience."
Their description was perfectly accurate. The taste was AMAZING . Naturally sweet and warming, this after dinner "snack" satisfied my craving for a little something to nosh on in the evenings.
As with most teas Celestial Seasonings Madagascar Vanilla Red Rooibos Tea provides no calories, fat, or other nutrients. The ingredient list is short and simple: Rooibos, natural French vanilla flavor and vanilla bean.
I purchased the box of 20 teabags from my local grocery store for $2.00 (on sale from a regularly priced $2.99). I would HIGHLY recommend this gem to anyone looking to curb a sweet tooth in a calorie free way .
