I really like this tea, but I feel like there are a few caveats to my recommendation. First of all, the aroma is STRONG – nearly overpoweringly so. I was brewing a cup in the kitchen, and my partner on the opposite side of the house asked if I was making pancakes. This one might be best enjoyed at home (as to not fumigate your coworkers with vanilla-maple fragrance). Secondly, it’s also really sweet. I have a killer sweet-tooth, and found that it really scratched my dessert itch, but if you don’t like sweets, you should probably stay away from this one.
All in all, I really enjoyed this tea as an afternoon pick-me-up, or in place of dessert. It tasted more like vanilla frosting than cake, but was a very nice treat. It did have the ‘dry’ mouthfeel that rooibos teas sometimes have, which for me is what keeps it from being perfect.
I suspect this is probably one that you will either love or hate.
