Sweet seduction

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)

Ingredients: Organic: Fair Trade Certified green and red rooibos, safflowers, calendula marigold. With natural flavouring*.

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

Someone gave this to me. I hate creme brulee, but I can appreciate that people who like it may enjoy this tea. The flavoring is a bit much. It’s not my favorite. Rooibos on top of it. Bleh.

Nice, I already sipped this down this morning. Glad I tried it but won’t bother getting it again.

All these creme brulee blends I’ve been trying kind of makes me want to try the actual dessert, though.

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. :]

No sugar needed. Incredibly sweet, reminds me of Asian milk tea.

I didn’t think this tastes anything like creme brûlée to be honest…just rooibos.

Not too sweet, very subtle and smooth.

I just don’t get creme brulee from this. Besides, what’s the point of creme brulee if you can’t crack the shell on the surface? I guess it’s a nice pick if you want something sweet, but only mildly so… but then, why not just get something vanilla? Or just add sugar to your tea? I don’t know. I just get a whole lot of “what’s the point?” from this one. I find that David’s Creme Caramel renders this one a bit redundant, as they’re very similar, but the creme caramel has a richer, more buttery flavour. It’s like the difference between a Werther’s Original and a diabetic-friendly candy sweetened with sorbitol. Creme brulee just isn’t my bag.

tacey: Well, after a really long day, it’s really nice to have this cup of tea. I agree, it would be a nice dessert tea. I know I’ve said that before, but this one is a dessert. You don’t really get a lot of the rooibos, it’s more of a herbal feel. It’s nice. I feel satisfied. I give a 7/10. [Brooke: Why only a 7, then?] It’s not blowing me a way, it’s just comforting and giving me a little something. The taste isn’t in my face. I guess I could bump it to 8/10. A little bit of a different experience than the salted caramel. I feel like I’m winding down instead of being wound up.

Brooke: You know you’re at a wine tasting [Stacey: uh, sure] and to smell the wine, you have to dip the entirety of your nose into the glass? You give it a swirl and immediately throw your face into the drink in order to soak up the smell? Well… I’ve been doing that this whole time to this tea. It smells… wonderful. I do smell the cream, I do smell the rooibos, I do smell the dessert. Wow, just. And the taste? Mm. I drank it to the very last, lukewarm drop and it was delicious. 8.5/10
