I mostly bought this tea for the novelty factor – because lets face it, who makes root beer flavoured tea?

I was a bit dubious about some of the ingredients – lavender and jasmine blossoms? To my surprise this turned out to be really good.

The smell was very much like A&W root beer mixed with the honeyed, sweet smell of the honeybush. The taste is remarkably authentic as well; I was bracing myself for something artificial-tasting, but in fact it tastes quite ‘real’ to my tongue. It’s root beer with a smooth, almost creamy sweetness – not quite vanilla ice cream, but it’s reminiscent of it. I think it might actually be the lavender that makes this tea – it’s very subtle for something normally so strongly-scented, but it gives the tea a bit of a spicy ‘bite’ that makes it so like the real thing.

It’s not a float flavored, but Fava Tea Co. also sells this, so sadly I wasn’t shocked or even surprised.

Oop that made no sense. I’m tired sorry. I meant sells a root beer flavored tea (black or rooibos), not “also sells this”. Not sure if they ship to Canada though.

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.
