Pisces is my sign so of course I had to grab a sample of this. I was happy to see it was a caramel and cream tea as that sounds delightful.
Steeped, the smell of caramel is strong and alluring but it is yet again combined with a heavy scent of rooibos. When it comes to taste, there is a distinct creaminess that makes this tea simultaneously smooth and thick. The flavor is that of a rich and decadent caramel. The woodsyness of the rooibos combined with the flavors of the tea lends itself to the notion of a caramalization. The best description I can give is a Creme Brulee mixed with high end rooibos. Very good but I just wish the rooibos was more muted.
Thank you Sophie and Laurent at Nina’s Paris for your generosity. I am very honored to be able to try out your awesome product!
