Going to try this caramel flavored rooibos from Laurent of Nina’s Tea this evening. Once again i’m happy that i get the chance to try these rooibos samples. Got one more to try after this one and thats Lion. But first things first this is poisson or in english Pisces…
On my first cup i’m doing a 3min brew like usual. The dry leaf are the same like the other rooibos samples but this has some square pieces of what i’m guessing is the caramel. Those pieces are rather big so i’m expecting a strong caramel flavor.
Once the tea is cooled enough i’m onto tasting it. The color looks wonderful and it smells a little bit like toffee candy’s. When drinking and tasting i can clearly make out the caramel and its a bit creamy. Less then i expected tough. This one is a bit weaker in taste then the other rooibos samples i had. But thats possibly a mistake on my end by filling my tea infuser a bit higher then usual… sample size was the same then all others but i was to hasty measuring out the amount off water.
I’m starting to like rooibos more and more thanks to these samples, only rooibos i had before that was a unflavored one.
going to give this no rating (if thats possible i’m trowing the rating bar down to zero) because of the mistake on my side.
Have to say i did enjoy this even tough its a bit weaker then usual!
