A sample of this tea was included with one of my Tea Magazine deliveries and I completely forgot about it until now. I’m usually not one for rooibos but it was late at night and I wanted to avoid caffeine so close to bed time. This herbal blend certainly lived up to its luscious name. It was incredibly creamy and sweet, a perfect desert tea. The vanilla did not mask the rooibos base and I still able to detect its signature woodsy taste. I thought that Talbot Teas hit the flavoring nail on the head with this one, not too much and not too little. I actually found myself a little disappointed when my cup was empty. This was the first offering that I’ve tried from Talbot’s Teas. I have been meaning to check them out ever since I saw their presentation on Shark Tank and I am very glad that I did.
