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

This tea is enjoyable enough. The rooibos flavor is present but not overpowering as there is definitely the flavor of caramel (though its a bit artificial). This is something that might be found in my cupboard every now and then but I don’t think I will be running to the store every time it runs out.

After a bit of an unfortunate incident with DavidsTea today (Oh Canada), I tried this from my shipment.

This steeps nicely and has the perfect amount of caramel to counterbalance the rooibos. With a touch of sugar, it was spectacular. I’ll gladly drink this as a nighttime tea on a regular basis.

I’m on a huge caramel kick lately and this is genuinely tasty.

Finishing this one up in a doublesized cup tonight. Yay for delicious sipdowns!

Erin

What is a sipdown?? I’m seeing this word everywhere, hahah!

Tina S.

The way I interpret it, and use it, is when you’re trying to get a handle on your collection a bit by drinking down some of your flavours/packages. Essentially, you’re sipping down your amounts and numbers.

Erin

Ahh, I see! In that case I’ve been doing a sipdown of my own recently :x

I’m unimpressed with this one. I might try again later, but not any time soon…

I have had a such a great tea day! All of my teas were so yummy! This tea is not exception…
The smell is just like a homemade caramel with a bit of woodsy scent from the rooibos. I was not sure the caramel would flatter the taste of rooibos but boy was I wrong.

After the brewing the woodsy scent had dissipated and you could smell the warm caramel. it was a beautiful red amber color. First absolutely perfection in a cup! This is such a good dessert tea, it had a nice mouthfeel and was smooth and creamy and sweet. You can taste the rooibos but it is very subtle which is nice, sometimes the woodsy taste is to much… but this has such a smooth taste.

If you want a dessert tea that has no caffeine and you like caramel this is a tea you must try!

I’ve tried this tea plain before and got smooth/sweet rooibos but I didn’t get caramel in the taste; I did get some burnt sugar-caramel scent from the tea, however. Today is much the same — caramelly scent from the brewed tea, but I’m not tasting anything beyond rooibos in the tea itself. I added milk and a tiny bit of sugar hoping to bring out this tea’s dessert qualities, but no luck.

I’m starting to wonder if my tea’s gone stale or if there’s something wrong with me that I can’t taste the flavor my tea is supposed to have.

Edit: YESSSS! I’m finally getting something creamy and rich and sweet on the second steep! This one has milk and sugar again, but this steep feels more true to the name of the tea. Yummy!

Backlog:

This tasty caramel rooibos comes to me from Shmiracles! yay \^.^/ I brewed it up this afternoon. The caramel is just enough to add a touch of sweet to the rooibos. I think rooibos and I got off to a bad start. The first few rooibos blends I had were not for me at all! Although I’ve discovered that rooibos can be good in the right blend, I still have to be in the right mood for it. . .unless its DavidsTea Birthday Cake blend! I like that one more than this, but hey, can’t be having birthday cakes everyday now can I?

I like David’s Teas very much. I was amazed by their customer service: it seemed that they sent a package from Canada to the USA in half the time that most USA companies take to reach me. They have got some amazing flavor combinations. They can do remarkable things with fruits, chocolates, and spices. I liked this tea somewhat less than their other teas but I don’t think it’s the fault of the tea.

It’s dawning on me that Rooibos might not be my favorite delivery vehicle for flavors that are at all subtle. Sure, it can handle the bombast of a heavy cinnamon or clove of deep chocolate. Creme Caramel is certainly creamy and as smooth as satin; it’s got a satisfactory richness and natural sweetness. It’s not as BIG in the mouth as other David’s Teas. I think that I have a natural affinity for the bigger flavors of the Chai blends. And when David’s Teas adds chocolate to rooibos it really pops! I would certainly recommend this tea for those who like caramel flavors and for those who appreciate a bit of subtlety in their tea.

This is deliciously buttery and sweet; almost like I’m drinking creamy caramel. I’m glad I got this instead of Creme Brulee!

Almost resteeped it, but decided against it since I’m trying to cut back a little on my tea consumption. I drink way too much a day, and it’s starting to become a little bit of an addiction. I think I may be turning into some kind of tea junkie.

This is one of the best rooibos teas I’ve gotten to try… Usually, rooibos has a strange botanical flavor to it… This tea is no exception, but for once, it actually works! This tea was nice and sweet, a good before bedtime drink. I’d consider buying.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more
