I’m normally not a fan of rooibos – I find it too dry – but since it was reinvented as a sweet flavour for this tea, I thought I’d give it a try. Well, it still had that warm, hay-like rooibos flavour, but there was a nice creamy taste to offset it. Not too bad, but I don’t think I’d drink it again just on its own.

I tried it again later, with milk this time. I think it improved the flavour, but diluted it too much. Maybe there’s a way to add milk and then concentrate it? I dunno. I guess I’ll stick to my green and black teas for now.

Compared to tea proper, rooibos does have a rather ‘thin’ taste…I always expect caramel ones to be richer and fill it out a bit. I do like rooibos though..

I’ve always thought rooibos tastes a bit like the smell of hay. You’re right though; the caramel does help this one. If you like lighter tasting teas, white tea is good.

White and I are learning how to tango still. I think in general I like a fuller taste and mouth feel, but that’s rarely reflected in what I drink : )
