Not a fan. Tasted like a processed, murky mess freshly brewed, but down at room temperature it became more like dissolved nougat in ruined rooibos.
Now looking for something to reclaim my affection for rooibos.

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.

As I write this, I am well aware that I am using my last bit of Creme Caramel tea from my “Mary Poppins” tea bag. Yes, this was another one of those teas that goes on for a little too long.
I was surprised when I saw this picture of what the tea is supposed to look like. What are those cubes? I think I saw two of them in my 50g bag! ONLY TWO. What is this madness?
Obviously, those cubes are the “caramel” part haha. Well even with the minimal, caramel pieces in my tea, all that artificial flavoring made it caramel-y enough for me! Yes this tea is very smooth and the red rooibos tea makes all the difference. The two go well together to make this wonderful and satisfying tea!
Last week,I placed an order at David’s tea. I’d decided that I didn’t have enough rooibos in my collection, so I took 2: Jessie’s tea and Pure vanilla. And then I found this tea rating website and found out that Creme caramel seemed to be liked a lot, so I added it to the order, just to know what it would taste like. Tried it yesterday before I went to bed. I actually liked it a lot. It doesn’t have a strong caramel taste, just enough to be comforting. It’s a good tea to enjoy in a blanket, on a cold night. Thumbs up!
This checks all my boxes. Sweet, straightforward caramel in a delightful rooibos base. Reminds me of the Mackintosh’s toffee that I loved when I was a kid, before I had to worry about it ripping out the fillings in my teeth. It even looks pretty, with all those tiny caramel cubes. I’ll buy this until the day it’s discontinued, at which point, I’ll be forced to storm head office with a torch and a list of demands.
had this today at a DavidsTEA location, using their fabulous steeper. and i really wanted to love it, but i didn’t. the aroma and flavour was more rooibos than caramel when i drank it. it wasn’t as smooth as i thought it would be. a bit disappointing. perhaps the water they put in was too hot? if i try again, id prefer to do it on my own. they offered it in latte form so i would probably try it again as a latte over the counter.
I’m not much of a rooibos fan but the caramel made me wanting to try this one. Tried twice, and i’m still not getting the crème caramel taste but I taste much much much of rooibos, kind of woody bitter taste. Maybe i’ll try another rooibos, but with a lighter taste than this one to get to like it.
