I feel like I’m the only one who found that this didn’t really have much taste… I generally love sweet teas but I just find that this one was kind of bland! Call me crazy… I’ll have to try it again to figure it out. Can anyone recommend what sweetner is the best with it? Sugar, stevia, honey, agave……?!

Sweet, cake-like rooibos. Really, an ideal birthday gift for me. It may terrify regular rooibos drinkers, but I personally quite enjoy it. The sprinkles are so cute & tasty.

Mmmmm… I’m a huge fan of dessert teas and this one does not disappoint. I was looking for something sweet after a nice dinner and pulled this out of my basket! When you first open the bag, you immediately smell vanilla and cake and can see a rainbow of spinkles. It immediately put a smile on my face! Even my husband, who isn’t a tea drinker, was rather taken by the smell.

Once it’s done steeping, it still smells very sweet and cake-like. Drinking it tastes like vanilla and frosting. I get a hint of cake… but I wouldn’t say it’s exactly like cake, but hey it will be an excellent substitute when I want something sweet in no time flat.

It’s also my first experience with rooibos and honeybush, and I’m very pleased with the taste. I can’t believe I put off trying it for so long.

A ‘woe is me’ tea. I drink birthday cake when I’m feeling particularly piteous and hard-done-by and it always seems to make me feel better. It gives me a squeeze and says ‘oh Vanitea, your life is so hard – how DO you do it?’ Every once in a while we all need that kind of sympathy.

It has red and green rooibos, honeybush, sprinkles, ice cream bits (what on Earth?), natural and artificial flavoring.. It smells beautiful! I was stunned about the ice cream bits, but when it’s brewed they really make the tea have a creamy and smooth taste.

Rooibos teas all seem to have the same undertone, or background taste (in my opinion). Straight, plain, rooibos tastes great too, but the added flavoring and sprinkles makes this tea exceptional!

I like this, I don’t love it. I like a more complex vanilla flavor, and this tastes like box yellow cake…which is exactly what is promised, but I guess I expected something more sophisticated from the brand. It’s nice for something sweet for nighttime and it brews up pretty and red but it has the biggest throw of any tea I’ve ever brewed. I share a one bedroom with my better half and he can smell it brewing in the kitchen from the bedroom. It makes it a bit overwhelming and I can never quite finish a cup. The previous night’s leftovers are lovely the next morning over ice with a splash of milk but I’m still on the hunt for a perfect vanilla rooibos.

Mmmmm this was delicious! It smells like the graham cracker crust that my mom used to make – and tastes like it too! I tried it without anything added and wasn’t too impressed, but when I added milk and sugar it was wonderful. Will definitely get again!

Very delicious. Not so good as a latte though.

This tea is so amazing! It tastes like a vanilla cake! Vanilla cake has never been my favourite but this tea is just so splendid!

If I were to use one word to describe this tea, it’d be: nauseating.

I was excited to try a sweet new dessert tea, and to be fair that is exactly what I got, except the sweetness was cranked up to the max. The pure sugary taste was actually very enjoyable at the first sip or two, but by the fourth and fifth sip I knew there was no way I could finish this cup.

Trying not to waste the 50g bag I bought, I tried mixing this with a scoop of orange pekoe. While that made it much more palatable, I can’t imagine finishing the entire bag.
