A great tasting rooibos. After Oh Canada, this is my go to decaf tea. This one makes a great tea latté, and also a decent iced latté.

With virtually no calories, it might be the healthiest thing you do all day.

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!!
This tea was.. not what I expected to say the least.
The description made it sound so sweet! My first sip I did experience the caramel taste, but after that it i’m just getting that tobacco/woody after taste. This is the first rooibos that I have tried that is so strong in that flavor and aroma. I added some milk to see if it would calm the taste and it did add some creaminess.
My husband likes cigars…thinking he may be a fan of this tea. I won’t purchase more of this after we finish the sample.

I finally got around to trying this after having it tucked away for several months. While I absolutely LOVE caramel flavors in tea, rooibos tea bases aren’t my favorite. This tea, however, tastes divine! The rooibos had a nice woody, earthy flavor and complimented the caramel notes perfectly. Adding milk and sugar turns this into an extreme caramel-y decadent experience! Completely comforting and mouthwateringly delicious. My one complaint is the rooibos does leave a dry mouth feel. Otherwise, I can’t find anything I dislike.
Flavors: Caramel, Nuts, Rooibos, Wood
Off-balance. Caramel pieces provided too much sweetness to contrast the natural rooibos flavour, creating a dulling aftertaste that one might get after putting too much maple syrup on a pancake and having the insides of your mouth stick together uncomfortably. Smells phenomenal but didn’t carry through post-steep. However, blend 1/2 and 1/2 with a standard vanilla rooibos and ICE, and this makes for a delicious alternative with no sweetener required.
Flavors: Caramel, Honey, Molasses
Am v happy for QueenOfTarts for contacting me and wanting to swap because if if wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t have had this tea!
Ahhh I freakin love rooibos because now I’m forcing myself to actually listen to my doctor and try to cut caffeine out of my diet. I stop it with the caffeine at 5 now, and soon enough, that’ll slowly creep up to 12 dang. Not cutting caffeine out completely, but this is the closest I’ll get!
But ahhh THIS SMELLS SO GOOD.
It like cake and dessert and caramel and cream and luscious goodness.
Steeping and it smells a smidge like blueberries because I didn’t bother cleaning out my infuser completely before moving onto this one oops. I better not taste the blueberries when I drink it!
Mmmm it tastes like caramel cake. Ahh so good! I really like this tea wow. I freakin LOVE how it’s rooibos, too! Like seriously. I wanna thank all the people I’ve been swapping with who gave me a ton of caffeine-free teas. Like I freakin LOVE my flavoured blacks, but I actually need the rooibos and herbals. If only all my favourite teas were all caffeine-free.
