More honeybush than rooibos and I am ok with that. Both the caramel and the apple are present and lovely. This is a delight…see previous notes…

I can taste more Apple and hibiscus more than anything…but there is a creamy/smooth mystery about it…must be the caramel…wouldn’t have known that unless I read it in the description tho! :)

Not bad…if you like Fruity Tisanes!

Oh! BOTH Rooibos AND Honeybush! YAY!

I can smell more caramel than apple but both are pretty strong on the nose. This has to be one of the most intensely caramel-flavored tea/tisanes I have had to date and it’s nice! The Caramel is in front with a nice POP of Apple to follow! And I agree with my SororiTEA sister that the Rooibos and Honeybush help this flavor meet in the middle on many levels!

Thanks LiberTEAs for the opportunity to try this! LOVE IT!

This is completely YUM! I like that it is honeybush/rooibos rather than just rooibos, because the honeybush cancels out the rooibos taste and just leaves a pleasant honey sweetness and slight nutty undertone.

The apples and caramel are very strong in this blend – it is sweet, juicy and delicious. A very yummy dessert.

I don’t think I have ever tried any of their teas!

When I first opened this tea I was blown away by how pleasant the leafs smelled. The bits of pineapple added the perfect amount of sweet to the classic rooibos scent that I instantly became uber excited to steep a cup of this…

LIES & DECEIT!

The flavor of this tea can be summed up in one word: lacking. The pineapple bits while giving the dry leaves a fun dynamic do not translate to the flavor of the tea. I added some cream to give it a little more personality, but so far have been sorely disappointed in this tea. Will continue to experiment for better flavor and more complex nuances.

The name and pineapple… man it sounded so good…. what a disappointment.

Seriously! I’m gonna keep experimenting though… this is the first tea from this company that has sucked so i’m hoping a little tweaking can change that.

That’s too bad! Hope things work out better next time.

I was given this rooibos as a gift, however as it seems the company that produced it has discontinued this particular blend. Sad day. This rooibos blended with a fascinating blend of nutty tastes makes for a perfect afternoon tea. Not to mention the deep orange coloring looks so cool while steeping! The second steep which looses a little flavor still manages to be very enjoyable. I added half&half to experiment… ruined the dynamic nature of the blend. Best served straight. I wish I could find where to buy more. :-/

Try this iced with a little sugar! Amazing!

Great vanilla taste. Full taste, yet not overbearing. Great for an afternoon tea with cream and sugar. Second steep allows more intriguing flavors waiting to be discovered.

Lychee? Peach? Yes! This white tea is in love with the subtle fruit flavors a more tropical location. Perfect tea for the morning. Very refreshing.
