This is one of the 6 teas that came with the rooibos tea collection. I bought the collection to try different kinds of lattes, and to be honest this is the tea I was most skeptical of because it doesn’t sound like it would make a good latte- usually I go for lattes that have flavours like vanilla, almond, and maple – not sweet like fruit.
When I opened the bag and took a sniff it immediately brought me back to 2-3 years ago when David’s tea had a tea called Amaretto. Whatever flavouring is in this tea, it’s exactly what that tea had. Ironically, there is an Amaretto tea by Steeped tea as well and that also smells similar to this one. It’s kind of fruity.
I tried this tea 3 ways. First, as a latte, which was just okay. Second, hot, which was also just okay, and finally iced, which was probably the best, but didn’t “wow” me. Overall, it’s nice to try, but I probably won’t purchase it again.
