Leaf Type: Rooibos
Where to Buy: Kally Tea
Healthy nutrient packed Rooibos combined with almonds, mallow flowers and natural flavors create this cup reminiscent of fondant (or also known as Marzipan). Are we sitting in a South African Café? As you sip this flavor balanced Rooibos almond treat, it will seem as though you are. What a joy to drink either hot or iced. This Rooibos is a great accompaniment to any dessert delicacy.

Once again, Kally Tea delivers what it promises with its alluring tea names. The name of the tea is Almond Fondant, and this tastes a lot like almond fondant (or marzipan!)
This tisane has a rooibos base, and while rooibos is not usually my favorite herb, in this case, I find that the natural flavors of the rooibos actually work to the benefit of the tisane. The natural nutty flavor of the rooibos accents the almond notes very nicely, giving the cup a very delicious, nutty flavor.
There is some sweetness to this cup as well, and I’m very pleased with the balance of sweet and earthy tones. There is also a light creaminess to this, and I don’t know if that comes from the almond flavor or if there is a vanilla flavoring in this as well. But, I find that this creaminess takes the other flavors to the next level, giving it that fondant-like flavor.
This is a very tasty dessert tisane, and I like that it’s naturally caffeine-free, making it an excellent late-night treat that you can indulge in with no guilt, because there’s zero calories!
