My very first order ever from DAVIDsTEA arrived on my porch this evening! Hooray!
This is a creamy, burnt sugar-esqe rooibos dessert tea. There is definitely something artificial about it – almost like one of those flavored creamers (which is actually a flavor I kinda like every now and again).
I wanted to try this as-is first, but in the back of my mind I planned to use this as a mixer with my rooibos chai to make a vanilla/caramel chai. I think it will be better suited to that purpose than straight drinking. Don’t get me wrong — it’s satisfying by itself — but I think it will be fantabulous with chai spices. I used to do this with a slightly fakey creme roobois from Teavana and it was one of my favorite caffeine-free things in the world. I’ll post another review when I make a mix with this to tell you if it lives up to my dreams :)
I must have been in super magpie mode (shiiiiiiiny!) the day I placed my order because I got some crazy stuff. Look for gold balls, tiny sugar lips, and all kinds of nonsense in my upcoming reviews!
