Enjoyable cuppa last night. I have been craving caramel lately for some reason. This fit the bill!

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*.

This one of the teas that I keep coming back to when I am in the mood for rooibos, but not something too flavoured or too sweet.
I didn’t have high hopes for this cup as the dry leaf I had left only had one caramel bit, which I am not certain that my teaspoon managed to grab, in it.
Nonetheless, I steeped it at lower temperature, like I do with all rooibos and honeybush, and here I am with a lovely cup of caramel tea. There is a bit of sweetness supported by the woody heft of rooibos.
I like it. I am pleasantly surprised that this tea does not necessarily require the caramel bits in the leaf to be good. Of course, I would seek out more caramel bits if possible.
Flavors: Caramel, Rooibos
I’ve been wondering why I have not been drinking tea in the evenings? I’ve got so many nice herbal and rooibos blends, I should be enjoying an evening cup of tea! So I’m making a push to do that.
This was a sample from Ost, I think, and I’m really glad I tried it. Its a rooibos, which I have a hit and miss relationship with, but its well blended, with a nice caramel-y aftertaste. A really nice evening cuppa.
A delicious, light and sweet red rooibos infusion.
The caramel smell filled my kitchen and the taste of the tea was a match.
Definitely one of my top 5 from DavidsTea. Served hot with 1 tbsp. milk

What an epic first Rooibos tea to try. I got lucky and ended up smelling this tea in DT because i’m a caramel freak, and bought about 10 bucks worth to take home on a whim.
It’s looks are quite deceiving, for when you look at it – rather than hitting you with pink, glitter & all things your mind would associate as sweet – you see a dark maroon rooibos with random scatterings of cream coloured cubes of caramel.
Yes, you can eat it. And yes, I tried a piece!
I steeped the tea in hot water for about 5 minutes. It smelt like someone was baking something in the kitchen. Happiness.
And then, the tasting! It’s sweet and velvety. Totally wakes you up, or calms you down, based on your state of mind. Its one of those tea’s that goes well at any time of the day – or night – quite like Indian milk chai. So if you’re one of those people who appreciates a finisher, you’ll dig this.
Also, a great band to listen to while you drink CCR, is CCR !
A must have tea in my cupboard. Always.
Flavors: Caramel, Rooibos
Looks like Rooibos, smells like Rooibos, but Fry assured me that the caramel taste is stronger, so I was still willing to give it a go. She was right, it wasn’t supremely rooibos-y, but it wasn’t much of anything really. Super mellow, mild flavors that just barely hinted over hot water. I wanted more caramel out of this. Meh?
