The flavoured rooibos wasn’t too tart like I find certain blends are, and there was the distinct but not over-powering sweet-almond taste of marzipan present. It makes a great evening cuppa.
This is a good substitute for dessert, being quite sweet-flavoured with no extra sugar added to it. I’ve loved marzipan ever since I was a little girl when my mother would take me to the local pastry shop. I’m so glad to have found a tea that satisfies my craving for that wonderful delight. :D
There need to be more marzipan-flavoured things in this world, I’ve decided. This tea is wonderfully dessert-like without giving me a caffeine jolt – which would be pretty dire this late/early (it’s 2:30 am). :D
So I decided to follow suit with everyone else and drink an almond tea (marzipan is close as I have). The nutty-sweet, uncomplicated flavour is great after a big supper (the boyfriend made a wonderful steak) and the hint of rooibos tartness is nice without being too harsh or unpleasent.
This one is definite on my (short) list of rooibos teas that I actually enjoy drinking.
My last cup of tea of the night/veeery early morning. I love how yummy and dessert-like it tastes.
I steeped this for a bit too long and the almond taste is a bit too strong. It’s not undrinkable but I’ll have to remember to keep a better eye on the steeping time.
Mmm I really need to try this tea iced, I bet it would be amazing.
