Received my first ever swap today from Dexter3657, and holy moly, does this gal know how to put together a swap! All wrapped up pretty, with a list of teas and their ingredients? Holy moly. HUGE thank you!
This is the first tea that called to me, likely because it the last decaf I pulled out of the box. It smells very much like a caramel cappuccino out of the bag, a smell I’m very familiar with having worked as a barista. Steeped it’s a bit less coffee-ish and more caramel-y.
My first sips were a bit surprising. “Okay, this is a rooibos… yes, I can taste that… where’s the caramel… oh I feel it now… no coffee?” I drank half the mug (one cup) before I added Truvia, and then the coffee came back with mucho caramel-y butteriness. Yum.
I think I would’ve liked more coffee flavor in this for it to really be a great cappuccino tea, however it’s still a solid coffee offering for a late-at-night-treat. Thanks, Dexter3657!
EDIT: I accidentally let this sit over night. I actually thought I was drinking coffee with the first sip! So, coffee flavor achieved.
