This is very interesting. Right out of the bag it smells like eggnog and caramel. I’m surprised how accurate the smell seems to be. As it sits on my bedside table, I get the nicest sweet scent that tempts me to take a sip. It primarily tastes like a caramel rooibos – sweet, woody, but a little darker than other blends. I enjoy caramel rooibos teas, but given that this is supposed to be something different, I am a little disappointed. Before I know it, the rum comes at the end of the sip, reminding me of those butter rum Lifesavers. It lacks the buttery sweetness that would take it over the top, but I’m content with the syrupy caramel & rum combination. This is a decent tea, but I don’t think I will buy more.
