When I was in the store last week, aside from my list, I still felt like getting a little something extra and the SA suggested this one. I was unsure about the concept while reading about it on their site, but the smell of the dry leaves won me over, so I purchased not quite 20g.
The dry leaves have a lot going on. Sure, I can smell root beer, but it’s more like a syrupy root beer smell from root beer freezies or slushies, and the cinnamon comes and goes. The white chocolate is there too, and together, they create a pleasantly sweet aroma.
I’m reviewing this hot first and will try it iced once I move into my new place next week. Hot, the steeped tea smells like flat root beer, but in a good way. The taste reminds me of a melted root beer freezie with the added touch of white chocolate. Not to mention, the black tea base isn’t too strong at all despite steeping this for five minutes. It’s also sweet enough for me, but granted, I almost never add sugar to tea anyway. I can’t wait to try this one iced since I’m sure it’ll translate even better.
This makes me want a birch beer tea. I could see that playing very well with a black tea base.
