Eleventh tea sampled from TTB-C
Tee aus Deutschland! Wie aufregend! :p
So, I had to try this tea because anything with German words all over it always lures me in. I’ve dabbled in several languages, but one day, I was listening to a German song and all of the sudden I realized that it was the most beautiful language I’ve ever heard. Years later, the love hasn’t died. ( in case anyone is curious, the particular song that started it all can be heard here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvSgCtndxAA )
Yeah, so, really superficial reason to try a tea. Why should a caramel rooibos from Germany be different or better than any other? Much like coconut, caramel is a flavor that I love in everything except tea. In tea, it leaves a most unpleasant aftertaste. The caramel in this tea really wasn’t so strong. I got the burnt sugar flavor that Fiddling noted. However, I still got hints of the caramel aftertaste. Nothing unbearable, but it ruins the experience some nonetheless. I let my husband finish the cup and he loved it (he rates it about 92).
Woe to me that almost everyone else can enjoy the best dessert flavors in tea and I get to have the rare disagreeable palate. boooo.
