The last bit of my sample – I gobbled that sucker right up. Unfortunately, in my gobbling I consumed almost all of the cream caramel bits in the packet prior to this last cup. So now it taste like a very lightly caramel flavored rooibos rather than lightly rooibos flavored caramel candy. Shame that.
Still, I suppose the problem here was between teacup and chair, so I’m going to go ahead and cut it some slack…and be more careful when I inevitably order more of this :D
