Meet our newest obsession: the crème brulée. French for “burnt cream,” this rich and creamy dessert is famous for its silky custard base and crunchy toffee crust. Not only is it such a mouthwatering combination, it’s also inspired one of our favourite macaron flavours. This decadent tea combines all the vanilla-cream sweetness of a classic crème brulée – with a twist. Our secret? We added a pop of jasmine for a light floral touch. Satisfying, sophisticated and downright addictive, it’s the ultimate teatime indulgence.
Ingredients: Apple, jasmine tea, rosehip shells, pineapple (pineapple, su gar), sweet blackberry leaves, marigold flowers, natural and artificial flavouring.
Price per 50g: $8.98

From the Discovery teabox (WHAT is happening with that right now anyway?) One serving! This tea is quite the puzzler — it looks like many rosehips and apple cubes but it’s called Jasmine Creme Brulee. It should at least be green tea, but none that I can see. Hmmmmm…. However, the tea kind of tastes like Creme Brulee? Not sure on the jasmine. I’m not sure how EITHER flavor can come from ANY of these ingredients. The brew color is a bright yellow, so I suppose the rosehips don’t actually impart any red to the cup. It’s probably the most puzzling tea I’ve had, so I can’t say I love this but it wasn’t anything unpleasant.

I didn’t think I’d enjoy this one, but it’s really nice… sweet and fruity, and creamy. I taste the apple and blackberry leaves which gives it the fruity note. And it’s got to be the marigolds or something that’s also giving a floral note. It’s very refreshing to drink. This one might be worth it to purchase 50gs.
Flavors: Apple, Black Currant, Blackberry, Creamy
Disclaimer – I dislike jasmine but adore crème brulée, so it’ll be interesting to see how I feel about this one.
I’ve sipped a quarter of this and I’m not quite getting the dessert notes I was hoping for. I’m picking up on a lot of vanilla, a bit of apple and some mild caramelized notes…nothing too strong on the jasmine, but also not what I think of when I fantasize longingly about crème brulée.
It’s a solid tea – smells amazing, tastes good – but it’s just not what I hoped for based on the name, so I doubt I’ll drink the sample down.
It’s been WAY too long since I’ve been in here. The last two years have been the worst of my life which is why I’ve been absent from all forms of social media in that time. Don’t know how many steeper friends who are still active on here but if any of you are and see this I want to say I hope you have been well and I seriously have missed. This awesome community!
Anyway been trying new teas out today.
This one really weirds me out, it not only smells like Teavana’s Strawberry Rose champagnes But it tastes like it too. So confused by this tea. I taste a hint of jasmine but nothing Lille creme brûlée. Yeah this is gonna go on the sell list. Oh and if anyone is in the mood flor buying tea for really cheap prices keep your eyes out for a stash sale post! Hopefully this weekend or early next week.
Flavors: Fruity, Jasmine, Rose
I stocked up on this tea before it was re-released – I got 250g super cheap… before ever trying it. Terrible mistake! haha. It does seem to be almost universally loved though!
I find it has a strong smell (dry and steeped) of buttery, creamy caramel apples. The taste is nothing but watery apple juice so matter what I do! I don’t get any jasmine notes or really even any buttery caramel notes. I’m going to keep trying though – since I have a ton of it anyway :)
Didn’t think i’d like this one given the “jasmine” but this is much more like a creme brulee tea than a jasmine tea – in fact the jasmine was barely noticeable. Still not a fan of the tea, but it was drinkable and unexpected since i thought this would likely end up down the drain haha. Thanks for the share VariaTEA!
Opened the bag and it immediately started yelling BUTTERED POPCORN at me, with a little vanilla. Barely any jasmine at all. I was a bit disappointed but remembered reading another review that it really comes alive as you drink it, so carried on and holy cows alive this is so so amazing. Buttered popcorn yes please. (My roommate smelled it and said warm vanilla frosting, so as always YMMV.) Creme brulee is a bit of a misnomer – I’m the world’s number one creme brulee fangirl and I don’t get any true custard notes in this. But it’s smooth and creamy and vanilla and that jasmine lightly plays in the background….I will have a tin of this at all times for the rest of my life methinks.
Flavors: Butter, Caramel, Jasmine, Popcorn, Sweet, Vanilla
I’m not a big fan of green tea (except matcha), but this is so good even my non-tea fan mom likes it! Lol we happened to be at DT on the first day it was released, so we tried a sample and my mom liked it from there! I need a bit of sugar in my tea for the flavour to come out, so once I prepared it at home I immediately noticed the caramel goodness. Excellent tea! I hope it’s a permanent blend! It also smells exactly like creme brûlée and tastes like an appley green tea-infused creme brûlée! Fascinating flavours all within one cup – love it :)
