The hypnotizing aroma and flavor of toasty vanilla remind one of the magic of the French Quarter in New Orleans. Naturally caffeine free.

I was looking for a replacement for The Metropolitan Tea Company's "Bourbon Street Vanilla Rooibos," so I picked up 8 oz. While not a perfect sub, I liked it enough to come back again and get 16 oz.
The ingredients look exactly the same, but this tea is a less intense in its smell and the flavor it produces. There isn't the same strong vanilla as TMTC's version, but it's still quite good.
For comparison to your tea brewing, I make 16 oz mugs of tea with a long brew time for strong flavor, and I use 3 flat tablespoons of this loose tea. (I used about 2 tablespoons for TMTC's version.)

Our household has been enjoying bourbon vanilla rooibos tea from Darlene’s Teaport for YEARS. It’s my favourite. We have it often. It never fails to hit the right spot and it is always wonderful to share with someone who has never had it before, particularly people who say they don’t like tea without caffeine. So glad it is always available.

Before finding the Tea Port I had a friend who was stationed overseas, who had stumbled across a cute little English tea shop (that an English friend had introduced him to). As a gift he had sent me a tiny tin of what they called Bourbon Rooibus. But having it imported from England was insane, let's be honest. So I went out searching for where I could find an alternative source for this rare flavor. Voila, I found the tea port. And when it arrived (I bought 2 lbs of it to share with my roommates and family), it was EXACTLY the same---possibly better because it didn't cost $50 to ship it so I could afford to get 2 lbs of it.
The flavor is amazing. It's naturally sweet and ever so slightly smokey from the bourbon flavor. It's so good that no one I know ever has to add sugar to it. It's sweet enough on its own. Not to mention rooibus is good for digestion and for relaxation. My roommate calls it "cigar tea" because he thinks it smells like sweet, expensive cigars. (I disagree, but it IS absolutely intoxicating.) I highly recommend it to other people who'd like to try!
