I bought this one from tea-sipper’s stash sale. In fact, I got four different coffee-inspired teas from the same company. They all seem to be nearly identical, with slightly different flavors added. This one is inspired by the caramel macchiato, and it has little caramel cubes in it as well.
For some reason I thought this was black tea and rooibos, but it’s actually green tea and rooibos. So I steeped it like a black tea. Oops. Luckily, it tastes fine.
This reminds me of B&B’s Fairytale of NY, which is an Irish Cream inspired rooibos blend. I’m not sure I would specifically know that this is meant to be caramel-flavored? It is tasty, though. The rooibos is woody and goes perfectly with the coffee-like chicory root. It’s smooth and not overly roasty or coffee-ish. I guess maybe since rooibos has a bit of caramel character naturally, I don’t notice the additional caramel flavor?
I dig it, and I suspect I’ll dig the others as well since they’re so similar. :)
This would also probably make a fabulous latte.
