Personally: It’s no secret that I love tea and I will solicit places to try their teas, especially if I find that they offer unique and premier tea and tea products. When I find a company like Serendipitea I’m intrigued by their products and of course I want to share. I love their website and please check it out, it’s original and interesting.

REVIEW

 

Prior to brew: My daughter told me this tea reminded her of coffee. It’s anything but. Full bodied and flavorful it’s a wonderful herbal tea. The first scent of this tea was coconut and chocolate. CHOCOLATE!!! What a great flavor.

 

Brewed: Once brewed the Rooibos really stands out and comes forward to make such a lovely combination of ingredients.

Scent: More Rooibos with a strong scent of citrus on the back of the tongue. There is a refreshing aftertaste of coconut

 

Flavor: Very full bodied tea with a great mixture when combined with the Rooibos makes a very sharp flavor with a coconut/chocolate flavor. It’s really fun!

 

Sentiments: What a different tea! You’ve got your Rooibos with a black tea along with some really fun tea.   The tea itself has this lovely shimmer to it as well which will make it something fun to share with friends and make a really fun conversation piece.

My Tea Vault score values of 1-10 (10 being the best): “9”.
