Thanks to kittenna for this one, not quite a sip down as I have some saved for a small cup for when I’m no longer sick. However, sickbuds tell me that while this isn’t a bad cup of tea, its not my favourite. I’m getting the date taste but its nothing that screams! Omg why hasn’t frank brought this one back! :)

Special Thanks to Liberteas for this one!
The dates are amazing! They are HUGE! There is even that lil bit of muffin-likeness. Yes, you can still taste the rooibos but they all seem to work well, at least my palate seems to think so! It might not work for everyone but it works for me! It’s also a little nutty (but aren’t we all?) It’s YUMMERS!

Ok so I have no idea what dates taste like. All I know is they are good for sweetening stuff and they grow on some kind of palm tree.

So I was kind of meh about getting this tea in my grab bag, but it smelled good so I wasn’t going to give up on it without trying it.

It’s actually really good. It’s more walnut tasting, and the dates make it sweet. I’ve also never had walnut in tea before, and I really like it. Given my hatred of almond in tea, I am glad to find this out. Not really getting anything buttery.

I guess there is a nice fruitiness from the dates too. But I really have no idea what they taste like! If this is any indication I might have to try one.

Thanks so much for the sample Kittenna!
Date nut muffin… interesting. I’m not sure where I stand on this. I keep flipping between hate and meh!
I think it’s that the flavour and scent reminds me of Monk’s Blend, which I severely disliked, but it’s not entirely the same so I am wavering on that stand.
Also, it’s a little flower-like, which I find doesn’t go all that well with a rooibos. IMHO.
Milk and agave spruced it up a bit, but I’m still having trouble getting through the cuppa. Oh well. Another 52teas check off my list! thanks again Kittenna :)

Oh, Yum!
Smells like toasted nuts and dates.
Cozy, tasty and SO GOOD!
A bit of a agave aftertaste.
Nice red color.
The only problem with this tea is it makes me hungry;)
Thank you, TeaEqualsBliss
This is also my first 52 Teas Brand tea

I was a little wary when I first opened my bag of Date Nut Muffin Rooibos because the aroma wasn’t enticing me at all. As weird as it sounds, I always fear my rooibos having that weird aftertaste that can only really be described as “rooibosy” and I thought I smelled some indication of that in this blend.

BUT I was wrong, wrong, wrong, so blissfully wrong! There is no weird “rooibosy” aftertaste in Date Nut Muffin Rooibos. This blend features a genuinely tasty combination of cinnamon, dates, and walnuts that makes for a convincing muffin(esque) flavor. I’m likin’ it!

P.S. How are my fellow Steepsters doing? I’m going to get my act together and start logging on regularly again because I miss my fellow tea-fiends!


We have missed you! Other than my cold, I am doing pretty well. I am so bad at being sick!


Yes! I know what you mean about the rooibus. I generally avoid rooibus because of it. I’m hoping to get back into rooibus with some flavored blends. Glad to hear this is a good one. :)


SimplyJenW I don’t excel at sickness either! I’m more a caregiver than a care acceptor. I hope you’re feeling much better today :)


Mercuryhime You probably already know this, BUT TheNecessiTeas also has some of the best red rooibos blends available! Linsey’s Banana Bread and Carrot Cake blends are fantastic and there’s never a weird aftertaste :)

Thanks momo for this one! I really appreciate being able to try all these teas! I have been on a roll with teas I really really have loved lately. This one is so good. The rooibos is perfect with dates and walnuts. The dates are sweet and the walnuts are toasty. Really, I can’t think of a better combination! It does taste like a muffin, especially since I CAN taste that bit of butter flavor! I do wish the flavors were a bit stronger, but it’s much better than it could have been. Tasting this one, I don’t think I’ve had a rooibos in a while and I must have missed them!

First steep: 5 min. with water very cooled — flavor was perfect
Second steep: 10 min with just boiled water — barely had any flavor other than the rooibos

I do like dates. Back in my vegan days I got into snacking on mejool dates, which I still do today, when they are on sale. I do like baked date goods, but not over the top sweet.

This sample comes from Kittena, ty!

DRY: oooh, a hunk of date in here!

STEEPED: sweet datey smell. Reddy brown tea.

TASTE: sweet dried fruit taste, a little walnutty skin taste and buttery flavoring up front. The buttery taste is quite different from other buttery tastes I’ve had, it’s not like a buttery green tea, but a butteryness that hits the whole mouth and top of the mouth. I dunno, it tastes like flavoring, but not awful fake popcorn flavoring.
The rooibos is pretty backburner here and I can enjoy the date muffiness with rooibos being complimentary. I’m thinking dates and rooibos = good mix.

Sweetened, it’s much closer to date taste as dates are pretty sweet. However, I like this tea unsweetened to enjoy the nutty flavor.

COMMENTS: I love the butteryness in this tea – I’m one of those awful eaters that add butter to my muffins. This is pretty good, but I’d love MOAR walnut! I like this tea, but thinking of it having more walnuts makes me disappointed, if that makes sense.

This initially smelled a bit play-doughy to me, like some other not-great teas have smelled in the past. My cooled cup from last night tastes much the same, blech. The re-steep is moderately better, but still not very tasty to me. I wonder if it’s an age thing?

Anyways, I’ll try this again sometime and see if it improves. Perhaps I just don’t like dates in tea?? At least the rooibos isn’t particularly medicinal…
