Joy’s Teaspoon Italian Dream

Country of Origin: N/A (most likely South Africa)
Leaf Appearance: small and dark reddish brown. I was able to easily spot most of the other ingredients
Ingredients: rooibos tea, chocolate chips, brittle pieces, caramel pieces, flavoring, freeze-dried yoghurt granules, roasted coffee beans, roman camomile
Steep time: 8 minutes
Water Temperature: 205 degrees
Preparation Method: Breville One-Touch Tea Maker
Liquor: deep brown

This herbal tea blend was decadently sweet and creamy without being over the top or artificial tasting. It reminded me very much of tiramisu and it would make a perfect dessert tea. The ingredients sounded like an odd combination but somehow it works. I was a bit hesitant to try this at first because I saw that it contained the dreaded “C” word…COFFEE! I love how coffee smells but I’ve never been able to stomach the stuff. I was pleasantly surprised to find that rather than a blast of java, the roasted coffee beans added more of a mild hint of mocha. I would definitely recommend this tea.
