Warm and uncomplicated, with the barest suggestion of caramel (but not creme brulee). Too vapid to drink later in the day, but neither possessing of the caffeine necessary for morning.

No one can resist this organic green rooibos tea. Seriously. The aroma is just too outrageously tempting. Creamy, caramel, decadent, rich. And the taste! How can something so sweet be so light and fresh? Plus, rooibos is caffeine free, making it the perfect drink for after dinner or before bed. Could life be more wonderful? (MK Kosher)

This is one of the first teas I bought from David. I think perhaps I wasn’t ready for the sweet, creamy depth of the tea. Now that I’ve been drinking with David for a while, I like it better as I have become more comfortable with dessert teas that are not fruit based. I like it but don’t love it. It is light and creamy but I find that if I’m looking for a dessert team, I am more likey to turn to forever nuts or read my lips.

Dry leaves smell super fruity having a hard time imagining Creme Brulée from this.
Steeped still smells super fruity but i’picking up hints of vanilla the liqueur is a nice orangey color.
Time to taste: this taste like tutti fruity bubble gum not creme brulée …. not bad but not what i was expecting either…
My mom brought a sample bag of this. At first, I found the taste bitter and a bit off putting. My mother suggested adding 2 tsp of soy milk and a touch of brown sugar. What a huge difference this made! The tea’s full taste is unlocked, revealing a full bodied, tasty tea.
