All rooibos tea tends to taste similar to me, and the smells are alike too. I’ve compared this blend to Red Velvet Cake in a different tasting note. It’s a nice, sweet tea. The sight of the melting sprinkles isn’t very appealing, and this is the greasiest tea that I’ve ever prepared. However, taste is more important than sight in this case. Surprisingly, I enjoy this tea more once it’s cooled down, rather than extra hot.
This tea is super sweet. I love the cake-y deliciousness. My teenage sister (who is more addicted to sweets than I am) adores this tea and likes being able to participate in “having tea” with the ladies. I think this is a good introduction tea for children as well. They might appreciate the sweetness a bit more than older adults.
The David’s order arrived! I first tried this in a sampler, and despite my emphatic no-rooibos policy, I liked it so much I ordered an entire rainbow tin. You can’t taste the rooibos at all, just decadent buttery frosted cake. It’s kind of over the top, but every once in awhile it’s nice to have something that just tastes fun.
I hadn’t had this in years but I got a free tin as part of a sale, and I’m glad I did. I made this as a latte with sweetened condensed milk and it was just heavenly – very sweet, borderline syrupy and deliciously cakey. Definitely lives up to its name. <3

I’ve had this sample in my cupboard for an embarrassing number of years. I’m craving something sugary sweet and terrible for me, so I opted for this tea instead of the real thing. The flavor is vanilla and cake. The rooibos is pretty tame, which is good for me because I’m not a rooibos fan. The base is probably why I’ve avoided this tea for so long.
I added a bit of Truvia and now it is a real cake-y dream tea. Ohhh yeaaah! This is like liquid cake batter! I’m so glad I can enjoy this calorie-free, guilt-free tea to satisfy my craving. Yum yum yum! I’ve been all about the dessert teas lately and this is perfection.
