I really enjoy teas from Dammann Freres. Even though they’re a bit hard to purchase in the states, I’m thankful that they ship overseas and that I don’t need to travel all the way to France to buy their teas.
I taste creamy coconut with rooibos that reminds me of Coconut Custard from Teas Etc. The coconut doesn’t overwhelm the rooibos. The two work together so well and to be honest, it would be delicious on its own without the rhubarb. The rhubarb comes out after as a tart yet sweet fruity note. I personally wouldn’t think that rhubarb and coconut would go well together, but they do. Just when you find yourself a little overwhelmed by the tart rhubarb or creamy coconut, the other one steps in to keep things nice and balanced. This is a really lovely dessert tea and definitely fills my desire for sweets.
I would recommend trying this tea if you enjoy rooibos with coconut or rhubarb. The combination of the two takes it to the next level and gives you something new and different. Delicious!
Here’s the scoop!
Leaf Type: Rooibos
Where to Buy: Dammann Freres
Rhubarb for freshness, coconut for the exotic, two flavors combined with the round and smooth notes of rooibos in a delightfully gourmet infusion.
