There are few dessert teas more satisfying than Crème Caramel Rooibos. Smooth, sweet and creamy, it’s a taste sensation. And the best part is it’s made with South African rooibos, which is caffeine-free, nutty and naturally sweet. So indulge in a caramel dream. With virtually no calories, it might be the healthiest thing you do all day.
Ingredients: Red Rooibos, caramel pieces, artificial flavouring*.

Smells so divine there are no words sufficient enough. I think my expectations were quite high going in as I wasn’t sure what to expect from a dessert tea.
It did not taste as strong as it smells, which is a tad disappointing. That said, I enjoyed it immensely and it did fill that after-dinner-sugar-craving that I frequently experience. This will probably become one of my teas that I will always have on hand.
Another reviewer suggested adding agave nectar to it, so I think I might just do that.
This is the best smelling tea I’ve ever smelled. It smells like oozing warm caramel. I spent a good five minutes just smelling it before I took a sip. It doesn’t taste as strongly of caramel as one would expect but it is very silky on the tongue which was a pleasant surprise. The tea is sweet enough that it doesn’t require any additional sugar or sweetener too.
This is one of my all time favorite teas, especially after dinner with some peanut butter or chocolate chip cookies, but it’s marvelous on its own. It’s perfect as a dessert tea. Yumm!!
Enjoyed another cup of this tea with breakfast. I find it interesting that each brew takes on a different taste though.
Dried it smelled like burnt caramel. It brewed an orange brown colour and smelt like an earthy toasted caramel. While sipping the cup I was reminded of toasted marshmellows.
Flavors: Marshmallow, Toasted
Of all of the 24 teas in the advent calendar, this is one of the few that stood out for me. I loved the scent of this one – rich, buttery, caramel-y. Whereas a lot of David’s Teas tended to have a better aroma than test, the taste measures up well enough for this one.
I liked this one plain with no milk. It was a great way to end a heavy (carb-laden) meal, when you just can’t have a real dessert, and on rainy days when you want something light but comforting.
Flavors: Brown Sugar, Butterscotch, Caramel
I needed a night brew and I got a sweet one thanks to Evol. The rooibos was as wood-fruity as ever, but the flavoring was pretty good having some smoothness along the slightly artificial edge. I offset the rooibos dryness with honey, and that worked out well without taking too much from the caramel. I easily see this tea being something you add cream to with honey or sugar. I do want to try a tea with coconut sugar eventually…
