This tea is a blend of rooibos caramel, honeybush vanilla, and cream-flavored black tea. It is a great sweet treat anytime! The honeybush tea gives this blend a natural sweetness, so you can indulge without adding any sugar. Though it is not what I originally expected, the taste reminds me of buttercream frosting. I think this is my new favorite!
I love flavored teas, but dislike using black tea as the primary base because the black tea flavor is so strong that it often masks the other flavors. I chose rooibos and honeybush teas to get a mild sweet background flavor and only a little bit of black tea to get the cream flavor. Steep at 180 degrees for 5 minutes for best flavor. Tea update: I recently tried this tea with a splash of cream and it was heavenly! I usually do not add cream to any tea, but it really gave this tea a whole new level of sweet, creamy deliciousness—even without adding any sugar. My favorite dessert is drinking this tea, with cream, while eating a piece of Cadbury milk chocolate. The combination is so creamy and perfect that I look forward to it all day long. I know it adds extra calories, but it is worth it once in a while!
