Jeez all I was doing was finding this on Steepster to open it up for my note and my boyfriend’s like, buying more tea? NOOOOO.
Though of course if this is any good, I will buy more than a sample in the future.
I can’t say I’m a big fan of this. It’s very subtle. And I mean that everything about it is subtle, the rooibos is not strong either. It smelled like it was going to be that way when it started steeping, so I’m glad that isn’t how it tastes!
A bit of milk and sugar definitely helps bring out some flavor. Before I was just getting vanilla and a bit of creaminess, and now the creaminess comes off more like white chocolate, and I can taste the berry. I really like the white chocolate, I think the vanilla also helps to get the flavor of it across in here.
Will I get it again? Possibly. But I have too many other teas to want to get this one right now. Really. I have plenty of other chocolate teas to get through first, but this is a nice treat. And like I said before, it’s really nice that the rooibos is kept in check, it’s a very nice balance of flavors once you can get them to taste a bit stronger.
