So, I’m revising my previous score of 80 for this tea. I don’t know if I was just really feeling this tea at the time, or what, but the more I drink it, the less in love with it I am. Its just a bit too sweet for me. It tastes good, but the sweetness gets to me after awhile I’m finding. It’s like that first bite of really dense chocolate fudge. You bite into it and it’s sweet and yummy. But get about three bites in, and all the sudden you don’t want it anymore. It stops being yummy and becomes a bit of a burden. Anyway, that’s how I feel about this tea lately. I guess tastes really do change!

I’ve been missing out!! I just attempted the stovetop method using Caramel & Rum by Lupicia per instructions from Tealizzy and YUM!! Used a little brown sugar too. This is definitely a wonderful alternative to hot cocoa and just as comforting. For me, this might be THE way to enjoy rooibos teas as I’m not altogether that fond of them steeped with water. Thank you, Tealizzy!

The smell of this tea is divine. It reminds me of a salted caramel sauce used to drizzle over ice cream. It smells very sweet, but the taste is not overwhelming. Definitely a dessert tea.

I got this as the sample with the October 2012 mailer. Because I also ordered a package that month, I got a second newsletter/sample. My boyfriend and I drank them tonight.
Before brewing it smells really rummy, and brewed it smells/tastes overwhelmingly rummy. I think. I don’t drink alcohol, so I guess I don’t really know what rum tastes like, I’m just going off of my imagination… and my boyfriend says that no, it doesn’t taste like rum.
The rooibos flavor is hidden beneath the other flavors.
It does really taste like a butterscotch candy. I really don’t like butterscotch, so I didn’t care for this tea. My boyfriend loved it though, and he’s not particularly into tea, so that is bumping up the rating for me.

Strong caramel and rum flavors and rooibus itself very faint, almost non existent. Makes a perfect night time dessert with a bit of milk.

Today was a sipdown of this amazing tea. It has become one of my favourites and I welcome it back into my cupboard anytime.


You’ve sold me on trying this next time I order from them!

Got this in a recent Lupicia newsletter…

I’m so glad (Mostly) that Summer is finally on it’s way out. I mean we’ll probably have a few more really nice days and might get bit of an Indian summer, but overall cool enough to have tea most days…YAY!!!

Sadly this summer I wasn’t really in the mood for tea with a few exceptions, so in addition to the beastly hot temps, that made me really irritable.

This tea was picked at random after dinner, though considering I am trying to avoid much caffeine in the evenings, just as well. I like this tea, like I’ve liked most Rooibos teas…but the jury is out on whether or not I’d actually buy this tea, namely in my next order, (Which sadly probably won’t be till January/February.) I’m thinking I really should do an inventory on my teas before I buy anymore anyways.

I taste the Caramel/Butterscotch in it…though I wish it were more butterscotchy. I also taste a hint of rum, which I’ve never drank, one of these days I will. I was kind of hoping this would taste like Werther’s Originals…that was my favorite candy when I was little. But since I have the really bad habit of chewing hard candies, I avoid them like the plague, but a tea that tastes just like Werther’s? OMG, I would adore that!

Keep in mind I like rooibos teas, this is my favorite. It delivers on all the flavors it promises. Smells amazing dry and steeped. I enjoy it plain, with honey, and occasionally with a little shot of rum on a cold winter night. It stands up to cream for those guests who insist on profaning their tea with it. It is a tea I can share with my guests…if I am feeling generous.

This is one of my absolute favorites. It’s so yummy, especially with a drop of milk and honey. All the notes come through pretty well, and I love how it doesn’t oversteep.

Disclaimer: my favorite flavor of Lifesavers is Butter Rum, and I don’t dislike Rooibos. These truths make this nearly the perfect Tisane for me. The dry aroma is pure butter rum, which translates nicely into the cup, especially after cooling a bit. Add a little cream and between sight and smell you could believe that you are holding a cup of caramel, luckily it is not overly sweet, just very comforting. Good resteep as well.
