I must say that I love the name of this tea – it’s just so cute! I have been wanting to order some more of my favorite creme caramel from Teapigs, but shipping is so expensive! I thought that I would try to find a new alternative that would taste the same, but would be more readily available! This one smells promising: buttery, sugary, woody.
Sipping… It’s a bit different than I expected. This isn’t to say that it’s bad, it’s just not the buttery caramel rooibos tea I’m used to. The rooibos base is good – not medicinal at all. It’s just the caramel flavoring is a bit more burnt tasting, a little bit spicy even. It doesn’t leave the nicest flavor on my tongue. The spicy caramel is paired with a bit of a watery rooibos background. The other blends I’ve had feel a little bit thicker and more buttery. I’m going to finish the amount I have, but then I’ll probably continue the search for other caramel rooibos teas!
