Tiramisu Mascarpone Rooibos from Tin Roof Teas

Okay, smart people, do you notice an unusual ingredient in the new rooibos tea I got from Tin Roof Teas in Raleigh, N.C. over the weekend?

If you said "coffee beans," you are correct! That's one of the surprise ingredients in this delicious tea I bought "by scent" after sniffing several jars of tea at this lovely tea shop. As it says on the package, this tea contains rooibos tea, chocolate chips, brittle pieces, cream caramel pieces, freeze-dried yogurt granules, roasted coffee beans (!), Roman chamomile, and natural flavor.

I enjoy most rooibos teas anyway, but this one was divine! It had such a rich, dessert-like quality about it, and I'm so happy to find it can be ordered online here when I run out! (You folks in North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia even get to enjoy $5 shipping, so I recommend you check out the site!)


  1. Hmmm, that's a new one! I thought I spied some coffee beans in that tea, and as I read on down, you confirmed it. I am not a coffee fan but i'm glad you enjoyed the tea/coffee mix.

  2. It sounds like a very unusual blend, but very delicious too. Enjoy!

  3. This unusual blend sounds interesting. I'll give it a try sometime

  4. What an odd coincidence.....I went to Indy to be with my tea sisters for a bday tea party (can't wait to share the party - soon) and the first night I stayed with my friend Mary who had a similar tea. We went through her big bin of teas, and I had read that it was very very similar to yours on this post. I exclaimed "Oh my gosh, this has COFFEE BEANS in it????" So, yes, surprising for sure!

    We didn't try it because it was after 10pm.....but could use it most days I think, haha. Hugs.

  5. This sounds delicious! I am going to try it - wouldn't it be nice to have a store like this nearby? Thanks so much for your review. Joanie
