I’ve been skeptical in the extreme of all these ‘artificial’, sweet teas Davids Tea’s been bringing out this spring – jellybeans here, sprinkles there, chocolate over here – what about a new fruity black blend, please?

But I think, after sipping my way through 15g of this, that it’s a winner. This is what I thought Buttercream would taste like – mapley, caramelly red rooibos. I brew for 5 minutes at boiling and it’s very sweet, so I don’t think I would reach for it often, but it would be great for those days when you’re trying to avoid dessert but still want something sugary to round off the meal. On certain sips it’s reminiscent of Creme Brulee, although I think that’s a superior tea.

Aww, thanks! Oooh, it’s definitely worth a try – and really affordable compared some to the heavier teas I’ve been sipping on recently (cough, cough Gold Rush).
