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 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
I had a coupon for a free tea so I decided to reward myself with this one on Sunday. It tastes just like a chewy caramel candy! Well, not exactly. The flavor is noms, but it’s also watery. It kind of just falls out at the end of the sip. I thought that the lady had just underleafed it, but looking at the other reviews I am wondering whether more leaf would really have solved the problem. This particular rooibos base just might not be hearty enough to support the flavor. I would be open to playing around with this one at home to see if I can fix it.
Flavors: Candy, Caramel
Creme brulee is my favorite dessert, so I was hopeful about this one. Maybe too hopeful? To start with, this is the weirdest smelling tea ever. It’s overwhelmingly sweet, but also strangely woody or medicinal. It could possibly be the rooibos but I’ve never smelled anything particularly like this. The look of the leaf is also super weird with the long pieces of rooibos. They look like tiny pine leaves.
As for the taste, this one is somewhere in the middle for me. I do get the creamy, custardy note but overall it just tastes like burnt sugar. It improved when I added milk. It’s not bad, but it’s not terribly good? It smells nicer when brewed than it tastes. I’m regretting purchasing a full 50g. Quite frankly I can see why no one has recommended this to me in David’s or elsewhere.
