Red, white and blue, oh how I love you. Hats off to our all American blend of pomegranates, coconuts, blueberries and yummy rooibos. No caffeine so you can lull yourself to sleep with the ocean waves.
This is a really pretty blend. There are lots of blue and red petals, and along with the white coconut shavings, this blend has a very patriotic look. It smells yummy too! Fruity and sweet, with a delicious fragrance of coconut in the foreground. It’s enough to make my mouth water!
When brewed, the aroma softens a bit, but I can still smell the blueberries and the coconut. The pomegranate scent is a little less apparent, but fortunately, it isn’t so indistinguishable in the flavor!
This tastes really good. The rooibos flavor is not particularly strong, and that’s the way I prefer it. The coconut is the strongest flavor, and I can feel the silky, somewhat oily texture of the coconut wash over my palate. It tastes sweet and creamy and very smooth.
The blueberries and pomegranate are almost of equal strength in this cup, with the blueberry edging out the pomegranate only slightly. The flavor is sweet with a hint of tartness – tartness that I suspect is further softened by the presence of the coconut.
This is an awesome, caffeine-free dessert tisane that can be enjoyed any time of the day or night. This would also be great to help curb those late-night sweet cravings!

“What Ever Floats Your Boat” has always been one of my favorite cliches so when I saw the name of this Rooibos I HAD to try it! Then when I saw the “Free Spirited Woman On The Go” description I knew it was for me! “But Wait! There’s More!” THEN when I saw the ingredients I was delighted and REALLY couldn’t wait to try it! It sounded so plump and juicy and mouth-watering!
When I opened the pouch it not only lived up to the aroma – it lived up to the name!
This is quite aromatic!
It’s a very colorful dry mix!
Post infusion – the coconut gives it a slight oily texture on the top but the actual color of the tisane is a vibrant toned down brown-orange…very nice!
It has a nice strong Rooibos flavor but the blueberry and pom join hands in harmony and the coconut flavor does give it a semi-tropical yet milky-smooth flavor, too!
This is another good one from White August Tea Company and a very tasty flavored rooibos!
