Returning to this one today, because last time I tried it I was right on the edge of getting a cold and I wasn’t sure I’d done it justice. My main concern was that (I thought) it was supposed to be a citrus fruit flavoured yerba-oolong-rooibos blend, and I was getting…caramel.
Turns out it wasn’t a case of wonky tastebuds, because I’m still tasting caramel. It’s distinctively sweet, with a background of hazelnut, a touch of honey, and a little vanilla. It’s nutty and creamy; a little like butterscotch, a little like nut brittle. Very much not citrus, but lovely just the same.
As it turns out, I must have been very confused last time I looked this one up. The description clearly says rooibos caramel, rooibos almond, and honeybush hazelnut, which makes a lot more sense! I’m not sure which tea I thought I was drinking, but it wasn’t this one. (ETA: Actually, I do know. I thought I was drinking Chantel Isaacs version of Felix Felicis, when I actually have Robert Pirlot’s. Mystery solved.)
Now that order has been restored to the world, I’m going to say that I think this would make a decent latte, once autumn comes around again.
