Who doesn’t love vanilla? It is in almost every sweet food we love and the smell is the go to aroma for most people when choosing their own personal scent. Never have a I heard a disparaging remark about this lovely sexy thing.
Now Rooibos is not a main thing for most people I did not even register it as drinkable until my buff introduced me to it only a few years ago and I’ve been 30 years on this earth !drinking tea all that time!
Now this smells like straight up sexy sweet vanilla no real hint of rooibos until brewed and steeped. I of course overloaded my perfect DAVIDsTEA tea spoon and steeped 7 minutes for full body and flavour.I’ve never been a fan of straight rooibos the taste is not something I look forward to but this smells nice…I can tell its a rooibos but it doesn’t have that dry muddy smell it’s been liberated by the vanilla and they as ingredients complement each other nicely. The perfect couple? We shall see.
The taste is surprising in that it tastes like rooibos but for once I like it.it doesn’t feel heavy or earthy just warming and instead of being bitterness there is a sweetness at the end of every sip.there is also a floral kiss that is nice and subtle.
This tea is for you if you love rooibos and it is a great drink to start someone off with their rooibos discovering journey.I’m going to give this to my bff Linda Irvine since there is no bigger rooibos lover.I do feel conflicted about it though which surprises me even more!
I’m not going to buy more but I’ll never turn down a glass of it!
