Strong caramel and rum flavors and rooibus itself very faint, almost non existent. Makes a perfect night time dessert with a bit of milk.
So the first time I had this, I wasn’t impressed, but I know a lot more about making loose tea now, so it’s improved with every subsequent cup.
I’d say you need at least 1 heaping teaspoon per 8-10 ounces to really get a solid sweet caramel flavor. The caramel is sweet but not cloyingly so, making this a nice treat at the end of a day.
I got a tea sachet of this from Lupicia. It is a tasty tea but the rum is more pronounced in smell and taste. It has a pleasing smell and aftertaste. I added sugar to the last half but it doesn’t add anything special. I wish I had more to try with some milk.
I was surprised by this tea as I was prepared to not like it. Like other reviewers, I prepared it as a latte. The rum flavor is strong and rounds out the tea. Sadly the tea bag I had worked for just one cup and weakly steeped the second cup I tried. Darn! This was a very enjoyable cup on a cold rainy afternoon and I would definitely buy it again.
