Nope, not a fan of this one. It has an off taste and is twisting something up in my stomach. Going to pass on this Sweetheart.

The scent of this one is very strongly vanilla cream. Everytime I have this, I am wary that the scent won’t translate to the taste, but it surpasses my expectations each time and gives a flavourful cup, perfect for bedtime.

Thanks QueenofTarts for sharing this with me!

I enjoyed it, but it didn’t stand out from any other vanilla rooibos to me.

Thanks, QueenofTarts for sending this my way! I enjoy this tea…to a point. The beginning of the sip is amazing, but the end just…ruins it for me. It weirds me out. I don’t think it’s something I’d search out once it’s gone, but it’ll be no hardship to finish what I have! Thanks again!

Thanks QueenOfTarts for this one!

This blend is so cute with the little candy hearts! I’m not quite sure what is in it, but I can see bits of nuts (perhaps pecans?) and other things. I quite like this – it’s sweet and nutty, and the flavourings are supported well by the rooibos base.

But…as I get further down the cup, and it starts to cool, the nutty flavour becomes overbearing and I start to get funny feeling in the back of my throat. As it cools down even more, it becomes very, very sickly sweet.

Hmm. I liked this tea at the beginning of the cup, but it turned out too sickly for me.

Backlog: I had this last night as I was going to bed. I don’t have many rooibos blends, so this was a welcome addition to my collection! Dry, it had a lovely, creamy scent and steeped, more of the vanilla came through. The vanilla tastes natural and it definitely is quite creamy. Also, the rooibos base doesn’t overpower the flavour, but supports it instead. A very sweet tea. Finally, I have found a rooibos that satisfies my sweet tooth!
