The smell was amazing. It continued to permeate my apartment even though the tea had gone cold. The tea alone would be good as dessert.

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)

I tried this one today at the random suggestion of one of the staff, as I’m at the point where I’ve tried most of the other teas by now.. and it was amazing! A completely random blessing! I was quite surprised, because I typically shy away from rooibos based ones, but maybe it was because of the green rooibos as opposed to the red? I had milk and agave in it, though I usually drink tea without either…. but I’m glad I did.
1. I finally found a decaffinated tea perfect for just before bed- no liccorice, mint, or cammomile…. (I’m trying to fix messed up sleep patterns lately) 2. I finally found a caramel-y tea that didn’t disappoint me…. 3. I found a rooibos that I’m quite fond of.
I say this was a complete success on so many levels, mostly by mistake.
I was surprised to see so many low ratings for this one….. but it deffinatly does need milk and agave.
here’s what DavidsTea says about Creme Brulee~Sweet seduction
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, some experts are saying that the special antioxidants and alpha hydroxy acids in green rooibos will fight aging and improve your health. Could life be more wonderful?
here’s what i say~A.mmmmmmmmmmmen!
This is my favourite tea right now from David’s Tea. Since David’s Tea opened in my city, my love for tea has gotten stronger. I’ve tried a handful of their teas, and Creme Brulee is my favourite right now, I can’t get enough. It’s a nice, light tasting tea that is perfect any time of the day. I am currently out and am sad because I don’t have time to go get more right now, but I will soon enough and then I can enjoy it once again!
I get a really creamy, smooth cup. Not an overwhelming creaminess but something really full seeming. I can almost imagine it’s food and not liquid as I drink it. The tea is not as sweet as one might expect, but it has nice hints of caramel. I haven’t ever actually had creme brulee dessert because I don’t like the texture of custard, but I imagine this makes a decent approximation of it.
It’s not as exciting as it all sounds, though. The flavour is quite mild even though it’s so creamy.
I’ve bought this tea twice before, but I recently ran out and so I purchased a sample with the others I bought from Tea in Spoons. I have not had it in months, so I forgot how good it was. I love the sweetness of the rooibos base with the creamy brown sugar flavour. This also makes an amazing latte or after dinner “dessert”. I usually just keep the tea bag in and keep refilling the cup to make several steepings instead of timing when to take the teabag out. I love how forgiving rooibos is.
Flavors: Brown Sugar, Burnt Sugar, Cream, Custard, Milk, Rooibos, Sweet
This green rooibos tea came in a sampler.
It is just ok. I added a bit of cold water to the boiling before I steeped the tea to prevent the sour wood rooibos thing. As the tea began to steep, I got the slightest bit of caramel scent. Just as I got the slightest bit of caramel flavour in the first sip or two. After that, it was all green rooibos. Not impressive, but ok. I will finish my sample of this in the evenings when I want something plain and basic. Or perhaps I can add this to the rooibos teas I have which are far too sweet. At least it hasn’t been artificially sweetened to death. My preference is red rooibos, but perhaps one day a green rooibos will surprise me.
Flavors: Caramel, Rooibos
I had this one in a sampler set. I remember being excited to try it for the first time because I L-O-V-E creme brulee.
I found the tiny half filled tin of it yesterday and decided to finish ’er off. It was better than I had remembered, though my precision in making tea has changed so much since I first picked up this tea.
It tasted less ‘burnt’ than I remembered. I definitely wouldn’t say it tastes like creme brulee. But it’s not bad. It resteeped well at least three times. I wouldn’t be upset if it showed up in another sampler pack, but I won’t be purposely re-stocking.
Flavors: Brown Sugar, Butter, Rooibos, Sweet
