Great Dessert Tea
I love the right amount of sweetness this tea imparts on the the taste buds. It tastes juicy and decadent with the fruit and chocolate flavors, without a ton of calories, and antioxidants to boot! I drink almost all my teas without adding sweeteners or cream, and this tasted great just by itself, though I'm tempted to try this with soy or almond milk to impart a thicker texture.
I had this as a sample from The Persimmon Tree and it is great! I'm not usually a fan of vanilla but the blend in this one has the right balance for me as it doesn't overpower.
Tastes Milky creamy with a hint of red rooibos flavor. Fruity taste of currants and slight sweetness. Not tart or bitter.
This has got to be the best use of hibiscus I've drank to date. I'm guessing the hibiscus twangs with the currant to give that fruitness without drinking liquid tartness of death. As always, The Persimmon Tree makes very good blends. VBT is very balanced with rooibos, creamy and fruity. Personally, I love the creamy elements the best. The creamyness is as if I added milk to my tea.
Caffeine free treat
Usually I don't like to add milk and sugar to a tea, which this needs to really make the flavors pop, but I'll gladly make an exception. With milk, the white chocolate really tastes like a truffle, and a little sweetener makes the black currant shine. This is a well balanced rooibos blend. If you're not fond of red rooibos, give this one a chance anyway, it may change your mind about what the tisane can bring!
Great before bed tea!
I am a huge fan of rooibos teas, especially dessert blends. I love a warm cup of dessert tea right before bed, and what better tea to make then a warm cup of rooibos. This is a great blend, with subtle and not overly sweet flavors. I can definitely taste the vanilla and some of the white chocolate, but I didn't get much berry flavor. Still a good cup and I am glad that I gave it a try.
I had a sampling of this last night – by the way The Persimmon Tree has generous samples!
Anyway – it was really good – the aroma was amazing – the flavor just slightly watery for me so I added a slight bit of sugar in the raw and a decent splash of milk and I feel this brought the tea to life!
It was not bad at all before doing so but I liked it better with the additives.
Made it more of a dessert tea for me.
The fruit and chocolate make an excellent pairing, and there is just the right balance of vanilla. It looks nice too.
