Thanks to Stacy at Butiki for a sample of this!
I had been excited to try it, pie and coconut are two of my favorite things ever so that in a tea sounded great.
I’m always wary of rooibos because I don’t love it. I love some rooibos teas but only the ones that are self aware enough to know that they are much better off hanging out in the background…not the over confident ones that think they could carry a tea.
(Some I love – all of Della Terra’s lemon/lime ones, their Blueberry Creme, and Davidstea Alpine Punch)
This is one of those cocky rooibos, it takes over. I knew the second I smelled it that this would be the case, because all I smell is rooibos. Stacy’s flavored teas are quite subtle and so far from what I’ve tried that worked out, but in this case the flavor is lost underneath the rooibos. For me, that’s bad, because I’m not a rooibos fan.
I can say that it was pretty damn creamy though. I just would have preferred it as a black or maybe with the Frost Oolong!
Glad I got try it anyway, now I can officially scratch it off the list.
(brewed as per Butiki’s directions)
Now I will go back to drooling over Andrew McCarthy in Pretty in Pink!
