I didn’t really have high hopes for this one – most flavoured rooibos tea I’ve tried tend to be mostly rooibos with not much ‘flavour’. This one was a pleasent surprise however, because what I tasted is pear – lots and lots of pear. Its real pear too, not an artifically-created approximate. I can almost feel the slightly gritty texture you get when you bite into a ripe pear as I sip this tea. The caramel is more subtle, a light sweetness than appears mostly as the tea cools off. I also love that I can hardly taste the red rooibos.
