This tea had the slightly woodsy, sweet flavor expected of rooibos with just a bit of citrusy tang. I was skeptical of the yogurt granules but they added this amazing creaminess that perfectly complimented the orange peel. Neither flavor was over-the-top or artificial tasting. I love it when a tea tastes exactly the way its name implies. This selection was a perfect example of that. This was truly delicious, summery dessert tea. I could see this being excellent iced as well. I would definitely recommend this tea. I’m not a huge fan of rooibos but lately I’ve had a streak of good luck with some really wonderful flavored blends.
