This came as a free sample with my order. I wasn’t expecting samples considering they have a promo right now for a free 2oz of mystery tea with every 2oz purchase. I ended up ordering 10oz of tea and received 10oz + 2 samples + tea mints for free. Such a great deal!


I’ve been trying to drink more rooibos lately so I’ve been ordering from companies that carry unique flavors just so I have something a little bit different to try. Honestly, I’m not sure I would have ordered this one on my own, I just don’t care for toffee all that much. The scent of the dry leaf smelled really yummy when I opened up the sample package.

There were 2 teaspoons in the sample and I used them both with 16oz of water. I wish I had used less water though, I thought the flavor was a little on the weak side. The brewing instructions do state 1-1.5 teaspoons per 8oz, so next time I would definately go with the upper end. I’ll have to keep this in mind for the other rooibos blends I ordered.

Flavor-wise I think this tasted more like vanilla than toffee and it actually reminds me of a few other vanilla rooibos blends I’ve had recently. Not likely to be a reorder for me, but still great for a little variety.

I am always interested in swapping so if you see anything in my cupboard that you want to try just send me a message. Please keep in mind that I order most of my teas in sample sizes and may not have a lot to swap. I’m also trying to keep my swaps limited to one a month so I don’t break the bank.

My favorite tea companies to order from are American Tea Room, Rishi, TeaVivre, and Single Origin Teas, however I am constantly lured away from my favorites by a good sale.

Ingredients I love in tea
rose, peach, oolong, osmanthus, vanilla, marshmallow root and peppermint

Ingredients I dislike in tea:
spearmint, chocolate, orange, hibiscus, sage and for the most part lemon.

I am a firm believer that sage only belongs in my thanksgiving stuffing/dressing and absolutely not in my tea.

Cinnamon, Chocolate, Burdock Root, and Goji Berries

Rating Guidelines:

100 – 90: Pantry essential and some of my all time favorites that I can’t live without.

89 – 80: You’ll have a pretty good chance of finding this is my pantry on a regular basis, but it isn’t the end of the world if I run out.

79 – 70: I might consider restocking this at some point if the price was right.

69 – 40: Not undrinkable, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy it again.

39 – 20: What in the world were they thinking? Probably still finished this just because I hate to waste anything.

19 – 0: Wow, that’s so terrible chances are pretty good I dumped it out and gave away the rest.

My current top five favorite teas:

China Black – Rishi Tea
Earl Grey Cream – Zen Tea
Lemoncello – American Tea Room
Nonpareil Anxi Qing Xiang TieGuanYin Oolong – TeaVivre
White Tea Rose Mélange – Rishi Tea
