Lengthening the steeping time didn’t really do much except make the rooibos taste stronger, unfortunately. No offense intended to the seller, but I think it was a good thing that this blend was discontinued; it’s rather sub-par in my opinion.

Steep Information:
Amount: 2 tsp at first, then entire sample (approx 4 tsp)
Additives: none
Water: 6 ounces filtered boiling
Tool: Mesh basket strainer in cup
Steep Time: a little over 12 minutes
Served: Hot

Tasting Notes:
Dry Leaf Smell: barely a scent of caramel, and perhaps a re-heated burned caramel
Steeped Tea Smell: none
Flavor: woody rooibos
Body: Medium
Aftertaste: the burned caramel is there, like an after thought, not heavy but lightly
Liquor: dark red

After the first 7 minutes and 2 tsp of tea I found it to be a weak woody rooibos flavor, so I added the rest of the sample and steeped another 5 minutes.

I was not tasting the apple or smelling it. The cinnamon and almond surprised me as I would never have guessed they were there had they not been in the ingredient listing.

You need to like rooibos to like this tea as it is a very prominent flavor. The apple and caramel are too subtle for me.

Post-Steep Additives: 1/2 tsp German rock sugar, more caramel flavor brought out

No caramel in a tea named caramel apple…??? Um…

AmazonV

it was a after taste – and much more prominent with sugar, it was the apple i couldn’t find

It’s weird you can find something that’s not there. Something in the name that isn’t listed in the ingredients is false advertising to me. :(

I think I will retire this flavor. Even off Steepster it does not get high remarks. Thanks for your comments.

AmazonV

bye bye caramel apple! (just don’t let the Caribbean go anywhere!)

Er… I do like rooibos by itself. It’s a taste that brings me a sort of peace. But If I want plain-tasting rooibos I won’t bother with a blend that claims to be caramel apple. I could taste essentially none of the flavoring- it was just blah, bland. I’m not sure anyone actually remembered to put it in!
Oh well, I’ll enjoy my plain rooibos, and I can only give it so low of a rating for that reason.
