I removed this tea from its pouch a bit worried. It smelled quite strongly of some kind of alcoholic drink and I was worried that it would taste like it, too! It’s definitely got a calm rooibos flavor and something that tastes like coffee? I can’t taste any of the creamy parts. It’s mostly a coffee-like taste, rooibos and the liquor-sweetness that I don’t really like. It leaves a strange bit of liquor taste in your mouth. I did finish the cup and I did think that it was a smooth drink, overall. I wish I could have tasted the creamy characteristic and that the liquor smell/taste could be removed. I also want to give Naomi a big thank you for sending me a sample of this.
