I tried plain rooibos, and it tasted like pickles. Um, should that be the case?


Hi Addie!
Wow...I haven't tried just plain Rooibos tea. I'm not sure I'd dig drinking pickle juice. I don't care how much it helped my acne I couldn't drink it. eusa_sick.gif
I tried a blend of rooibos tea at a gourmet tea shop (WAY too expensive) and the get gorgeous. Both of them tasted very good. I don't add sugar to the GG because I think it has a hint of sweetness from the orange peel. Well, I don't like the taste of Chamomille tea at all but my friends love it!!! Anyway, to answer your question, the rooibos teas that I have tried don't taste like pickles...at least not to me.

If you want loads of antioxidants, why not take green tea extract capsules instead?

I don't think ti will help. Some ppl were taking it here. I am drinking sooo much green tea and it doesn't do much.

It is more expensive than green tea sad.gif I bought it bulk online (250 tea bags for $40) and it lasts a little over a month. However, I'm not buying all the other "stuff" every month that I used to buy to try and prevent/treat my acne though. That was at least $20/month...in the summer it was WAY more. So i guess it's like 16 cents a tea bag times 6 a day...96 cents a day. Way less than a starbucks coffee. I hope i did my math correctly...never was good at that. eusa_doh.gif anyway, i would pay anything to have clear skin, even if i have to cut into my grocery budget.

this month I wasted around 150. with no results, my skin is worth than ever. if I knew it's gonna help for sure, I would buy that tea right away.((( how long did it take for you to see results?

Holy cow! That's alot of money! I know, I've been there too...I wasted so much money over the years on bogus, expensive products that didn't work for me. cry.gif
When I started drinking the tea, I noticed the 2nd day. Inflammation of my already erupted cysts went down and I didn't have any new ones start growing. It was 28 days after i started drinking this stuff before I had another cyst! That's a long break for me considering I was getting breakouts every 2-3 days.

do u drink a cup with one tea bag? so it's 4-5 tea bags a day right? I got rooibos tea and drink one huuuuuuuge cup with one tead bag. and it's just 2-3 tea bags a day.I thought maybe I should drink it with 2 in one.

I use 1 tea bag per cup of water. If i use a to-go thermos i put 2 bags in it because 1 tea bag is too weak for me...i think the thermos holds a little over 2 cups. I guess it's a matter of preference... wink.gif

NO WAY, .......... I had pickles.....they tasted just like roobios............ WTF?

eusa_hand.gif Ok seriously, I think what you tasted was off, my roobios has never tasted like that but it's blended with other herbs so my suggestion is buy the blend with Republic of Tea or Lipton or one of the other's listed on this thread........unless you like the taste of pickles..... eusa_doh.gif

I am very happy to say YES, I am still clear!! eusa_dance.gif It's been 63 days since I've been drinking this tea and in that time frame I've had 2 fairly small cysts that quietly went away after about a week and 2 tiny "normal" pimples that lasted about 3 days. This is a huge success for me!!!! I know that all good things eventually will come to an end...but I'm hoping I have quite a while before that happens. biggrin.gif

Today I went to get tea at school, and they usually have lots of packs with different flavors. Tazo mostly. U know,the one that Starbucks uses. Anyway, there was a tea called African Red Bush, Igridients rooibos, hint of hibiscus flowers, lemon and sweet spices, a pinch of rosemary. It's not the same, but still is something. And maybe it's easier to find. I went to target, they have Tazo teas sometimes. They did not have it.sad.gif

Rooibos is Afrikaans for Red Bush. Its a South African tea so if you cant find Rooibos try looking for Red Bush as twill be the exact same me thinks.

I came back from SA a Rooibos addict, sucks that you guys have trouble buying it, I can get it in the supermarket as easy and same price as Green or Camomile etc.


I had no idea it had skin benefits, though, woohoo! wiggle.gif

I went to my local grocery store (Raley's) and looked in the Well Living / Organic food section and found some Rooibus Tea.

Posted Image

It says Red Mellow Bush but I think that's an older box because the one I have clearly says Rooibos and ORGANIC ~ Red Mellow Bush under it. It was about 5.49 for 18 tea bags, but next time I'll buy it online to save $$$ (Stash - 120 bags for 20 dollars).

I'll start drinking it tonight ... hopefully I can see results soon ... I'm desperate lol
