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*.

Smells so divine there are no words sufficient enough. I think my expectations were quite high going in as I wasn’t sure what to expect from a dessert tea.
It did not taste as strong as it smells, which is a tad disappointing. That said, I enjoyed it immensely and it did fill that after-dinner-sugar-craving that I frequently experience. This will probably become one of my teas that I will always have on hand.
Another reviewer suggested adding agave nectar to it, so I think I might just do that.
This is the best smelling tea I’ve ever smelled. It smells like oozing warm caramel. I spent a good five minutes just smelling it before I took a sip. It doesn’t taste as strongly of caramel as one would expect but it is very silky on the tongue which was a pleasant surprise. The tea is sweet enough that it doesn’t require any additional sugar or sweetener too.
This is one of my all time favorite teas, especially after dinner with some peanut butter or chocolate chip cookies, but it’s marvelous on its own. It’s perfect as a dessert tea. Yumm!!
Day #17 of tea!
How have I never completed a tasting note for this one before now? Oh well, it’s getting done now, haha. This was an excellent treat this afternoon, after I got in from a walk (brrr, it was cold). There are other rooibos teas I like better than this one (cinnamon chai being the main example), as I’m not as crazy about caramel/toffee teas as some others tend to be. But I liked this, with the usual addition of milk, and I’ve got enough of the sample left for another couple of cups, so that’s good.
I know I have reviewed this tea before because it is in my spreadsheet and I have drank it many times over the last few years. Oh well, I guess Steepster ate another one of my notes.
I have a real sweet tooth, and instead of reaching for something sweet and high in calories after supper, this is a good substitute. It is very sweet, and it is best enjoyed as a dessert latte.
This one of the teas that I keep coming back to when I am in the mood for rooibos, but not something too flavoured or too sweet.
I didn’t have high hopes for this cup as the dry leaf I had left only had one caramel bit, which I am not certain that my teaspoon managed to grab, in it.
Nonetheless, I steeped it at lower temperature, like I do with all rooibos and honeybush, and here I am with a lovely cup of caramel tea. There is a bit of sweetness supported by the woody heft of rooibos.
I like it. I am pleasantly surprised that this tea does not necessarily require the caramel bits in the leaf to be good. Of course, I would seek out more caramel bits if possible.
Flavors: Caramel, Rooibos
It’s finally starting to get pretty chilly around here so I’ve been keeping the kettle on more often (yay!)
This is the last tea of the night (I think :3) – it’s not the caramel tea I hoped for when I bought it still, but it is creamy and calming. The rooibos is definitely strong so I’d really define it as more of a woody flavor but still great for relaxing before bed.
Flavors: Cream, Rooibos, Wood
