Best served as a tea latte, it feels both creamy and light at the same time. The smell of vanilla is a bit overwhelming, but as a dessert tea it is a delectable mix of vanilla, caramel and honey.

This tea was meh. Just meh. I wasn’t overly impressed with it at all and don’t understand the hype. I tried it because of unrelenting recommendations from friends. I’ve tried it hot, hot with agave, and as a hot latte and still am not much of a fan. It’s too much sweetness without any real flavour for my taste. I won’t be repurchasing this and am glad the 50 g bag I got is now gone as it took me months to finish it.
Flavors: Sugar, Sweet
Quite honestly I am a bit underwhelmed by this tea. After reading the reviews I was expecting a creamy, rich treat. What I actually got was a pretty blah cup of rooibos with some vanilla. Not detecting the cream, hint of maple, or strong cake flavor. Cloying with no depth
It’s fine for when I want something warm at night I suppose, but it’s nothing really to write home about.
Flavors: Rooibos, Vanilla
Some friends got me this for my birthday last spring, and then I didn’t see them until November, and this is the first time I’m having the tea.
It IS tasty, but whoa nelly, that is SWEET. I only usually put sugar/honey/maple into some herbal teas, or lapsang souchong.
This is more of an occasional tea, I think. But it is nice, and they also gave me one of those super cute cupcake tea infusers. :)
Still on the fence about this one. I thought I would hate it as I’m not much for dessert teas, but it’s not bad. Strong maple and vanilla flavours. The maple is what’s throwing me off because I personally hate maple anything, but I’m still drinking this..
Flavors: Caramel, Maple, Vanilla
I bought a tin of this a while ago without evening sampling it first. I took a gamble and assumed I would like this tea based on the fact that its a rooibos blend. Plus it has sprinkles. Realistically how bad can a tea that has sprinkles in it be? Needless to say I ended up really liking this tea. However more recently I decided one day to try it as a tea latte.
Hands down it tastes amazing as a latte. I’ve been drinking it like this ever since and have never looked back since.
I was a bit skeptical at first adding dairy to rooibos because I don’t think I’ve added dairy to herbal teas before? Nevertheless it tastes delicious and will be the only way I’ll drink it from now on.
Full disclosure: on it’s own this tea is not a 90%. It is kind of a boring vanilla rooibos, a little sweet but not remarkable.
HOWEVER I am going to tell you a wonderful tea secret that might change your mind about this tea if you have tried it before and been unimpressed:
If you like to drink teas latte style; this tea blends with almost any herbal or black tea perfectly and takes the drink to a whole new level.
I am very fond of blending it with dessert-y herbals, iced OR hot. I sub like 1 scoop of it in for a travel mug and two for a pot. It adds a taste of creamy vanilla that blends really well with the macadamia milk I use for lattes.
