I drank this a few days ago and I remember it being a pleasant tea. The rooibos wasn’t overpowering and the hibiscus was pretty mild and it tasted sweet and berry-ish. I’m not going to jump for joy over it, but it was good.

Cream of the crop.
It’s no secret raspberry cream pie is the star of every dessert party. This springtime treat has a habit of flaunting its flaky crust, creamy filling and fresh raspberry topping. And we fall for it every time. Beautiful on the outside and satisfyingly sweet on the inside, this decadent rooibos blend is no different. With white chocolate, raspberries, rose petals and pink sugar sparkles, there’s simply no resisting it. And with next to no calories, this is one indulgence you can feel good about.
Ingredients: Green rooibos, cane sugar, white chocolate chips (sugar, cocoa butter, milk powder, butter oil, soy lecithin, vanilla extract), pink sugar mix (sugar, carnauba wax, glycerine, beet juice, purple carrot, saffron, mica based pearlescent pigment (colour)), blackberries, raspberries, gomphrena petals, hibiscus, strawberry leaves, natural and artificial raspberry, blackberry and vanilla cream flavouring.
Contains milk and soy.

Doesn’t taste like raspberry, cream or pie. Tastes like sugar. 2nd ingredient. This tea is awful. As a diabetic I’m annoyed they didn’t point out there is so much sugar in this tea it looks to be half sugar by volume. Bought it because of the rave reviews on here.
Day 15 of David’s Tea’s 24 Days of Tea 2017
This tea smells amazing, and I’d been looking forward to trying it. Today I decided to settle down in a bath with a bath bomb, a podcast, and a cup of this tea. Ah, bliss.
The actual flavour of this tea somewhat pales in comparison to it’s flavour (though I find that most teas smell much stronger than they taste after brewing, also I had eaten sweets earlier so that might’ve also been a contributor) but the flavour is strong enough still. As with other chocolatey teas I’ve tried the white chocolate chips in the tea left a little bit of oil floating on the surface of the tea, but this doesn’t really seem to be a bother.
If you enjoy Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait, you may also enjoy it’s less-tart cousin. I’ll probably be picking up some of this one next time I’m out.
DAVID’s 24 Days of Tea, day 15.
I liked it. That surprised me because of the hibiscus, but I didn’t get that horrid sour zing that turns me off so much. I much prefer green rooibos to the more commonly used red rooibos. I didn’t get get the cream flavor. Again, no sense of smell yet. I had the kenalog shot on Monday, so I think I’ll be able to smell around December 22. Maybe. It’s not an exact science. Fingers crossed though. I love being able to smell stuff. Even the cat box.
Anyway, I’m giving this one a recommendation. It’s not one that I need to have in my cupboard, but it was a nice treat and I’ll enjoy another cup.
I tried this tea for the first time as part of their advent calendar. I was really looking forward to this, since I have a sweet tooth and I really like dessert teas – not to mention, the strong raspberry scent and the white chocolate!
Steeped, the tea is a light brown colour with a strong raspberry scent that kind of overpowers the tea (and seemed a little artificial at times). I don’t know why, but as with many DavidsTea, the tea is covered by a thin layer of oil. It was really creamy and sweet though, which is probably attributed to the white chocolate.
Overall, I really enjoyed the tea! It’s described as a spring time tea, but it felt like a festive drink that reminded me of homely Christmas parties. I would recommend adding more leaves for a stronger brew.
Flavors: Cream, Raspberry, White Chocolate, Wood
It smells wonderful, exactly like a raspberry cream pie. The flavour was quite sweet – almost too sweet – so, although I drank a few servings “plain”, I couldn’t help but look for something to add to my cup that would offset the sweetness. Half a scoop of matcha works well in combination with this tea, as does – surprise, surprise – a dollop of creme fraiche. (It’s less weird than it sounds. Salted cream bubble tea is popular in some parts of the world.)
Flavors: Cream, Raspberry
At first glance, I noticed the white chocolate and sugar among the blend and was a bit hesitant to try it out as it smelled overly sweet. It actually does really smell like cream pie with a hint of raspberry. There is an oily film on the tea, probably due to the white chocolate chips, and you can definitely taste the oil with every sip. The tea ia actually ok, not too light and not too heavy. I can taste the raspberries in there as well as the rooibos, but neither are overwhelming. It’s pretty decent and a nice-to-have in your cupboard.
Flavors: Blackberry, Butter, Cake, Raspberry, Rooibos
So after cycling to work today I needed a good rooibos blend so I picked this out of my work stash as it’s been a little while since I’ve logged it. Such a nice raspberry cream flavour. Turns out I’ve done approx. 21km (13 miles) today. Not bad but I might be pretty tired tomorrow :D
