“Mmm... smells like berry truffles. The flavour is sweet berry and white chocolate. It works well. And the taste of the hibiscus is mild. ” Read full tasting note
Our Berries ‘n’ Cream tea takes a rooibos base and transforms it into a vanilla truffle-like treat with succulent black currents, creamy white chocolate blossoms, and organic hibiscus. This naturally caffeine-free tea makes the perfect after-dinner dessert tea when sweetened with a little rock sugar.

I just received my order today, but I couldn’t resist trying just one more of the samples before bed! At first sip I felt a bit of déjà vu. I recently reviewed Aries by Nina’s Paris, and they taste nearly identical, despite the fact that one is rooibos and berries and the other is rooibos and cherry. Yes, I looked it up – cherry is a fruit!
There’s a surprisingly big difference between the dry smell, which is kind of woodsy, and the taste, which dives straight into cream and something fruity and ambiguous. With rooibos I always seem to taste a slight hint of caramel flavoring, but I think that’s just because I’m a little weird!
Overall, this was enjoyable. Like its sister tea, I’m not going to go out of my way for it, but it is a nice change of pace.
This is pretty good! Fruity notes and a creamy finish. It still can’t top Della Terra’s Lime Chiffon in my head as far as creamy rooibos teas go, but that’s not this tea’s fault. The hibiscus behaves nicely and only adds the slightest bit of tartness to make the berries pop.
Also, memory is faulty. :P
I’d recommend this to others.
Backlog because Steepster was broken Thursday night/Friday morning. Just as the package leads you to believe- it tastes of berries and cream. The berry taste is sort of generic, a mix of strawberry and other berries. White chocolate curls lend the taste/feel of cream, but do no impart much if any sweetness. The rooibos is thankfully not very prominent in this blend- only just enough to leave the taste refreshing instead of heavy.
