From DAVIDsTEA

Sheer decadence

There are few dessert teas more satisfying than Crème Caramel Rooibos. Smooth, sweet and creamy, it’s a taste sensation. And the best part is it’s made with South African rooibos, which is caffeine-free, nutty and naturally sweet. So indulge in a caramel dream. With virtually no calories, it might be the healthiest thing you do all day.

Ingredients: Red Rooibos, caramel pieces, artificial flavouring*.

Allergens: Dairy

Thanks TastyBrew! Such a nice rooibos. Sweet, creamy, and lovely caramel flavor. These flavors blend very well with the woodsy flavor of the rooibos. Thanks again!

After all the recent sales causing my tea cupboard to balloon, I decided I needed to rearrange things. The last time I did this, I put all my favorite teas together, all my samples together, and all those that would be good iced together. This didn’t really work. I think when I reach for a tea, it’s really based on whether it’s base is black, oolong, green, white, or herbal/rooibos. So, that’s how they are arranged now. Going through it, I found a few I never want to drink again…those, I will offer my tea buddy at work. ;) I also rediscovered a few.

This tea is one I rediscovered. It was at the bottom of a container filled with rooibos teas. It is essentially rooibos, with a hint of caramel. Not surprising since very few actual caramel pieces are included. In contrast, I always get more than one piece in caramel corn. Still, with a splash of milk and a little sugar, it’s comforting. Not as good as my beloved Lupicia caramel & rum though.

I cold brewed this and it was super delicious. Sweet enough I didn’t have to add any additional sugar :)

Meowkattack

Cold brew? Hmm. I’ve never tried it that way, might have to give it a shot. Great idea!

Amanda

Oh yea. Definitely try it.
I left mine for probably somewhere bewteen 12-14 hours in my takeya pitcher.

Alphakitty

Ooh, I got some of this in a swap and never thought to cold brew it. Thanks for the inspiration!

Well, the world didn’t end yesterday so that’s good. What isn’t so good is this tea. I’m a David’s Tea fan girl in general, but this tea left me wanting. Also, I suspect I’m a terrible vegan for even trying it. Creme Caramel with caramel bits in it almost defiantly has a dairy component, but in my tea mania I wasn’t even considering that. Six years vegan and I can still make a stupid mistake.

As a rooibos it tasted fine as all David’s Teas are high quality in my opinion, but I didn’t get much of a caramel flavor from it at all. It certainly didn’t provide as rich dessert tea and that was what I wanted. As I suspect it’s not vegan anyway, I won’t be trying it again. I have a nearly full 50g pouch if anyone wants it.

Jessie

I know there is an ingredients page somewhere on the DT site, though I can’t find it. But, at the bottom of this page is a list of which teas contain dairy products that might be helpful in the future! http://www.davidstea.com/faq

Jenn

Yeah, there are always simple ways to avoid silly decisions. I loose all sense of reason when I’m in a tea ordering frenzy. Lesson learned… (It’ll totally happen again). Thank you for the link.

Jenn

I’m confused too. There is a list of teas that would seem to contain dairy on the David’s Tea website, but then under the list there’s a caveat saying that the dairy is only in trace amounts. I’m not concerned about trace amounts of dairy from shared equipment, so I would still consider drinking the teas’s on that list if they don’t have a deliberate dairy component. Oh well, at least we don’t have to agonize over this one :)

Jessie

Oh, I can relate. I forget about things like disliking ginger when I’m in a tea frenzy.

I really liked this one when I first started frequenting DT, but quickly tired of it. Like you said, roobios is the predominant flavour and it’s not what you want from this tea.

Faith

I’ll take it, if you still have it!

veronica

If you haven’t given it away yet, I’d love to try it!

Shmiracles

hiya jenn! for commiseration, i too am vegan and STILL bought this tea AND the birthday cake tea. i had teahead! i was not being reasonable. (teahead says, ‘but it’s like having a teeny tiny 1/12 piece of milk chocolate at MOST!’ arg!)

I just got hit with an international headache, having to pay for interwebs in a place I moved away from over two months ago and for a time frame when I’m not even there. And with the threat that if they don’t get it within five days they’ll charge me even more, yet international money wires can take up to a week to process. My point? This calls for tea. Ugh.

I bought this like a-year-and-a-half ago, but I remember when I smelled this in the store, the waft of creamy caramel drew me in and I couldn’t say no. Dry, it smells so sweet and gooey, but of course, as expected, it has lost some of that charm after all this time.

I’m actually not really a fan of rooibos (and it took me a couple years to figure that out, after purchasing like 30 different rooibos blends), so the initial rooibos attack that hits me at the back of my throat when I take a sip is to be expected. But half a cup in, I’m starting to detect more of the caramel flavour. Now, memories of employees raving about how awesome this is as a latte are rushing back to me.

The colour of the liquor is a beautifully rich dark golden caramel. But alas, as I pour a second cup of this from my pot, I’m left with floating rooibos shrapnel, another groanworthy issue I have with rooibos. I’ll stop complaining, try to stop thinking about the interwebs crisis, and focus on the smooth crème caramel.

If it wasn’t while you lived there, how can it be your bill?

Also, I strongly approve of your icon. :D

Fjellrev

Yeah, it’s nonsensical. I had it paid for until the middle of February, half a month after I moved away, but they claim that I still need to pay until the end of the month. They wanted a measly 137 kr, but it ended up costing another 300 kr for the bank to send it. :/

And thank you so much! Yours is also an excellent choice.

P.S. Copenhagen definitely wins hands down when it comes to Scandinavian capitals. LOVE it there. :)

Angrboda

Actually mine is probably, hopefully going to change soon. I had the hardest time finding something exactly like I was looking for and ended up modifying a logo from a Swedish museum. While I like the icon, its origins bothers me. We went on an outing to the local archeological museum and I had Mr Hobby Photographer take some pictures for me which will hopefully work out as a new icon. One that isn’t blatantly stolen. :)

Fjellrev

Ah, are you worried about copyright infringements? I’m sure you’re fine, but either way, sounds like your future icon will be cool too.

Angrboda

Not really worried so much as irritated about it. :)

So its 4am and I’m still awake and watching Pretty Little Liars. And in keeping with my guilty pleasure theme for the night I’ve moved on from drinking Read My Lips to drinking this one, another one of my old favorites. Luckily I had lots of caramel chunks in this cup, but I do find that when there isn’t I don’t care for it as much. All in all I like this tea, it isn’t anything special but it is perfect for laid back nights spent watching bad tv.

Thank you to Doulton for sending me some of this tea. It’s totally YUM!

The caramel flavoring melds so nicely with the woody notes of the rooibos, which seems to curb that overpowering woody tone of the rooibos. This is more nutty than woody. It also doesn’t have that weird aftertaste. It’s just plain… YUMMY!

Thanks again Doulton! You rock!

Mmm! Another swapped tea from Doulton, and another tasty tasty rooibos. This one smelled nutty but had more of that woody-rooibos taste (the one that apparently you either really hate or really enjoy) which I like with sweet teas. Very smooth. I might try this with a bit of milk next time, I think.

I’m glad that you like this one, Cait. I’m turning away from Rooibos—I think merely because I had too much during those long winter nights. I think that David’s Tea is very much a quality operation and their delivery was unbelievably speedy too.

Cait

I’m definitely feeling good about David’s Tea! I will keep them in mind for sure. Thank you again!

After having a lot of black tea yesterday, I need to try this one. It smells really nice. Has a mild, sweet caramel flavour. Not that strong, but still good for what it is. (Might try with my other caramel teas.)
