I’ve had this little sample since forever and am just now trying it. I’m not crazy about coffee. I used to always think my mom’s cappuccino’s smelled SO good when I was little and would beg for a sip, and then was always disappointed. It’s like the way that vanilla extract smells . . . and then you taste it, ha! But I tried to keep an open mind about this one, because the dry leaves do smell very yummily of sweet caramel. The cup itself has more of a cappuccino aroma, but I can also detect a little of the rooibos. The flavor is nice enough. I can taste the rooibos up front, and there’s a caramel finish. The aftertaste is lightly sweet and strongly of rooibos. I wish the rooibos flavor was a little less intense and I would probably like this one a whole lot more. I’m saving the rest of this sample for my fiancee, who loves cappuccinos and coffee and doesn’t despise rooibos nearly as much as me. :) Thank you, KittyLovesTea for this sample!
