Yummmm! This tisane is definitely all about coconut and almond! The “cookie” part … well, the nutty, sweet flavor of the rooibos does sort of offer a warm, bake-y sort of flavor so yeah, I sort of get that … but, really, the cookie seems to be more of a flavor that comes with the power of suggestion rather than an actual taste of this tisane.
It’s still really yummy though. The flavors of coconut and almond go together very well, and they are pretty evenly balanced in this blend. The almond is strong, sweet, and toasty, while the coconut is also strong, with a smooth, creamy taste.
I think that this tea could use a touch of “buttery” flavor that might propel the tea to another level where the “cookie” would not be such a stretch of the imagination. As it is, it is tasty … but I think that the enhancement of a real cookie-like flavor would really make this blend amazing.
I do find this to be very enjoyable though. It has a comforting kind of flavor, the kind of tisane that you want to curl up to while watching television at night. It will help curb those late night sweet cravings, and because it’s naturally caffeine free, you don’t have to worry about it keeping you up past bedtime.
