Okay, so I like rooibos in general, and I like caramel. But for some reason this tea just doesn’t do it for me. There is some other scent or flavor in there that is a bit gamey. That spoils it for me.

No one can resist this organic green rooibos tea. Seriously. The aroma is just too outrageously tempting. Creamy, caramel, decadent, rich. And the taste! How can something so sweet be so light and fresh? Plus, rooibos is caffeine free, making it the perfect drink for after dinner or before bed. Could life be more wonderful? (MK Kosher)

sipdown! yay for getting in one a day still…i’m hoping to keep up that trend for the entire month of august, though i’m sure i’ll run out of sample sizes eventually. a goal of one means the other 2 teas i drink at a minimum help me work on decreasing other teas down to that “sipdown” range :) this one wasn’t half bad for a david’s tea, though i don’t need to have it again :)
Another sample from months ago, possibly poorly stored.
I had this last night while cleaning and it’s delicious. It’s very creamy with hints of cinnamon and caramel; easily one of the more dessert-like teas I’ve had from DavidsTea.
I can’t decide if this is something worth having around or not.
This tea is strange. It doesn’t taste as rooibos-y as other rooibos blends, so that’s a point in its favor. It doesn’t taste much like anything really. I get a little caramel taste when I exhale after the sip. It does taste a little creamy but there’s really no flavor for the creaminess to compliment. At least it doesn’t taste like wood chip tea like some rooibos blends!
Also, there’s a pretty good (for Minnesota) thunderstorm going on outside and it is making me miss Florida SO FREAKING MUCH! Why did I ever move away? Le sigh.
Not sure if I steeped enough tea…but it has a very delicate, caramel-y taste to it. It doesn’t have tons of flavor-at least this steep doesn’t. Perhaps I’ll just have to steep more next time. Maybe I’ll try mixing it with something, or simply, steep more next time.xD I’ll figure it out soon-thank you for this sample, Virginia! :D
Flavors: Caramel, Cream
I’m not sure if I liked this more than Salted Caramel, but it does taste very similar – which is a good thing! I couldn’t put my cup down – I also added a bit of skim milk and I got none of that straight up rooibos taste that I am always a little fearful of when I’m drinking rooibos blends. A very nice dessert tea – even if I did have mine first thing in the morning! Oh well. :]
