29 tasting notes

Okay, so it’s a rooibos. I will blame everything I don’t like about it on that fact. If it ain’t fruity, I tend to not care for rooibos.

Honestly, I LOVE Creme Brulée – the food. I love making them, I love eating them, I love that thin crust of caramelized sugar on top and what it feels like to break your spoon through. The cream underneath, rich and thick and sweet…

But this tea is really THIN to me. Watery, almost a bit fruity (which has no place here in a creme brulée tea, in my opinion) to me. I don’t find the scent particularly “outrageously tempting” – I find it weak. I hoped when I bought it that it would translate stronger into a brewed cup, but for me it just doesn’t stand on its own. Thin, water, kinda sweet, but it doesn’t taste like creme brulée and it doesn’t have the textures reminiscent of it, either. Just a miss for me.
