I got two free samples in the mail today from Design a Tea. This is sample 1. It is a rooibos with maple and pecan flavoring. The rooibos has that woody flavor to it, but it is not overpowering. The flavoring is strong. If you like a ‘pow’ kind of flavoring then you might like this. The pecan seems to be the more predominant flavor. The maple is kind of a background sweetness. The maple is more of an Aunt Jemima “maple” rather than a Vermont maple. I am also picking up on a coffee-like flavor and some burned sugar flavor. I like the burned sugar aspect, but I don’t like the coffee flavor so much. I think that is coming from the pecan. The smell is distinctly coffee. All in all, I’d say give this one a try.

Note – you probably don’t need any sweetener at all in this (coming from someone who sweetens everything).

This flavor (not the base) sounds so yummy… although I’m still not sold on the soggy nuts. I have to close my eyes and pretend they aren’t there when I dump my Mayan Chocolate Chai leaves lol.

Actually, this might taste a lot like a pecan waffle with maple syrup and a side of coffee. I love nut flavors in tea! :)

The flavors of nuts in tea is fine… it’s just the thought of the texture… I’m very much a texture oriented person.

Kristin

They do look yummy, but they contain milk and eggs (boo). Thanks for thinking of me.

Cofftea

Oh yeah… forgot about that one…
