Tea #5 from Traveling Tea Box C
It looks like I’m the first one here on Steepster to log this tea. I tried finding more information about it online, but didn’t find much other than a few German blogs, one of which priced this baby for 2.50 Euro for 250g…. that’s less than $7/lb. Blew my mind.
This was easily my favorite tea in the box. It tastes of scrumptious, (not overly) burnt sugar. The rooibos base is so, so deliciously rich. The liquor was the deepest red I’ve ever seen come from rooibos.
I usually don’t resteep rooibos, but given how flavorful the first round was, I decided to give it another go for about ten minutes. The results were nearly as fantastic as the first steep. The gooey caramel quality was still present, and the rooibos was still incredibly flavorful.
Now all I need is a German friend who can ship a steady supply of this to my door…
