Sweet seduction

No one can resist this organic green rooibos tea. Seriously. The aroma is just too outrageously tempting. Creamy, caramel, decadent, rich. And the taste! How can something so sweet be so light and fresh? Plus, rooibos is caffeine free, making it the perfect drink for after dinner or before bed. Could life be more wonderful? (MK Kosher)

Ingredients: Organic: Fair Trade Certified green and red rooibos, safflowers, calendula marigold. With natural flavouring*.

I had a coupon for a free tea so I decided to reward myself with this one on Sunday. It tastes just like a chewy caramel candy! Well, not exactly. The flavor is noms, but it’s also watery. It kind of just falls out at the end of the sip. I thought that the lady had just underleafed it, but looking at the other reviews I am wondering whether more leaf would really have solved the problem. This particular rooibos base just might not be hearty enough to support the flavor. I would be open to playing around with this one at home to see if I can fix it.

Creme brulee is my favorite dessert, so I was hopeful about this one. Maybe too hopeful? To start with, this is the weirdest smelling tea ever. It’s overwhelmingly sweet, but also strangely woody or medicinal. It could possibly be the rooibos but I’ve never smelled anything particularly like this. The look of the leaf is also super weird with the long pieces of rooibos. They look like tiny pine leaves.

As for the taste, this one is somewhere in the middle for me. I do get the creamy, custardy note but overall it just tastes like burnt sugar. It improved when I added milk. It’s not bad, but it’s not terribly good? It smells nicer when brewed than it tastes. I’m regretting purchasing a full 50g. Quite frankly I can see why no one has recommended this to me in David’s or elsewhere.

I thought I had added this tea to my cupboard, but I guess not. In any event, last night was a sipdown – but I’m robbed of the satisfaction of pressing the “remove from cupboard” button.

This was nice and tasty, but I don’t know if I’d want to restock.

Okay, so I like rooibos in general, and I like caramel. But for some reason this tea just doesn’t do it for me. There is some other scent or flavor in there that is a bit gamey. That spoils it for me.

I’ve had this both iced with sweetener and hot and I enjoyed both. Definitely a nice rooibos to try. It almost smells like rum in the bag which is wonderful.

sipdown! yay for getting in one a day still…i’m hoping to keep up that trend for the entire month of august, though i’m sure i’ll run out of sample sizes eventually. a goal of one means the other 2 teas i drink at a minimum help me work on decreasing other teas down to that “sipdown” range :) this one wasn’t half bad for a david’s tea, though i don’t need to have it again :)

Another sample from months ago, possibly poorly stored.

I had this last night while cleaning and it’s delicious. It’s very creamy with hints of cinnamon and caramel; easily one of the more dessert-like teas I’ve had from DavidsTea.

I can’t decide if this is something worth having around or not.

One of my favourite caramel teas. Has that slight taste of vanilla as well has toffee undertones.

This tea is strange. It doesn’t taste as rooibos-y as other rooibos blends, so that’s a point in its favor. It doesn’t taste much like anything really. I get a little caramel taste when I exhale after the sip. It does taste a little creamy but there’s really no flavor for the creaminess to compliment. At least it doesn’t taste like wood chip tea like some rooibos blends!

Also, there’s a pretty good (for Minnesota) thunderstorm going on outside and it is making me miss Florida SO FREAKING MUCH! Why did I ever move away? Le sigh.

Not sure if I steeped enough tea…but it has a very delicate, caramel-y taste to it. It doesn’t have tons of flavor-at least this steep doesn’t. Perhaps I’ll just have to steep more next time. Maybe I’ll try mixing it with something, or simply, steep more next time.xD I’ll figure it out soon-thank you for this sample, Virginia! :D

Try it with the Birthday Cake… or Oh Canada.


I will definitely have to try that-thanks! :D
