I am so glad you can order 25 gram samples at the Tea Haus. So even if I dislike a tea, I know I can finish it rather quickly and it will not go to waste. And then later on, I can order larger sizes of whatever tea I enjoyed! :) They also have such a kind staff!

This smells like red rooibos with a hint of caramel. You can see tiny caramel pieces in this tea. Although the caramel to rooibos ratio is off. I think it has far too much rooibos, just looking at it visually.

I’m not sure if I got a bad scoop of this (since sometimes heavier pieces like caramel can fall to the bottom). However, this tea had no caramel flavour at all. It tasted mostly like a good, red rooibos tea.

The rooibos base is excellent and refreshing. But I gave this a lower rating because it did not live up to its namesake of being a caramel tea.

To improve this tea I would add more caramel flavouring and larger caramel chunks. That would balance out the ratio between the red rooibos vs. caramel

I think if you enjoy red rooibos, you will like this tea. But I prefer rooibos to be a very mild flavour in tea blends.

Hello everyone!

So, how did I get into tea? I think I have always had a fascination with tea. But I really got obsessed with it after watching Avatar: The Last Airbender. I loved how Uncle Iroh used tea as a way to both practice self-care and connect with others.

I aspire to do the same through my tea endeavours.

My Favourite Canadian Small Tea Businesses: (Thus far! As I explore new tea brands, I am sure this list will grow)

Dessert by Deb
The Tea Haus
The Chai Brewing Company

My Preferred Preparation:
For black teas, I prefer the stove-top method with milk and sugar. For all other teas and herbal infusions, I usually prefer having them hot without any add-ins. However, I do like an occasional iced tea! Especially for some fruity or floral blends.

My Tea Preferences:
I enjoy flavoured teas more than straight teas; however, I do have a soft spot for traditional green or oolong teas.

Favourite Flavours:
- Masala chai (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and other warming spices!)
