This smells like coffee, has a whallop of rooibos, and tastes strongly of toffee and caramel – so basically, I need to avoid sending any of this to JustJames! :)

For anyone missing that trifecta however, I do strongly recommend this tea. There’s zero rooibos flavor, and just toffee caramel deliciousness. Huge thanks to Roswell Strange for reviewing it, just in time for me to order some along with my beloved Caramel Pu-erh.

I really enjoyed my first couple mugs of this: it was like super sweet, liquid caramel. Tonight however I’m only getting a little toffee/caramel and the rooibos is being especially woody and I have to admit maybe even just a touch medicinal.

Maybe I just brewed it up poorly? This is the first time I’ve made it in a timolino, so that could possibly have something to do with it? Perhaps? I don’t know – I just want this to be… Well, more than it is at the moment.

I know VariaTEA just her package from me which had some of this in it, so I hope she gets closer to the delicious first few cups I had instead of what I’m drinking now.

EDIT: More Toffee as it cooled!

VariaTEA

Ok so I will definitely avoid making this in the timolino :P

Yvonne

This sounds AMAZING on all levels.

Sil

oooh i’ll need to trade with you or variatea sometime to try this one out :)

MissB

Because of this review, I went and bought more Caramel Pu-erh and some of this to try out as well. So excited!

VariaTEA

MissB, I feel like even without this review you would have gotten more Caramel Pu’erh :P

VariaTEA

Also Sil, I wouldn’t mind sending some your way if you like :)

Sil

Variatea, happy to do a swap….and on tgwt note, while I’m thinking about it…..was it you I was saving some carrot cake for? From Stacy?

VariaTEA

Haha yeah it was but I got some from both Cavo and Roswell Strange :)

MissB

Heh. I was getting more (I grabbed the smallest size in my initial order of it, and have almost run out), and just needed more things to pump it up for the free shipping. ;)

OMGsrsly

MissB, I’d always jump in for free shipping… :D

Roswell Strange

Once I have an income again, I’m always up for sending people anything they want from Tea Desire :) It’s so convenient for me to get it – just a ten minute walk. I have Caramel Pu’Erh on my list to pick up too… I got this one because I just adore Victoria Mint and I thought it’d be like a mintless version (which it pretty much is).

OMGsrsly

I might have to take you up on that offer, Roswell. At least, if I can’t find the store on the Island. :)

Recently I have been super sensitive to the taste of rooibos. Not in a way that I feel ill but rather I pick up on it and find it hard to get past the rooibos flavor. Unfortunately this blend has fallen victim to that sensitivity. I can taste the toffee and it is good but more than anything I am tasting the rooibos. At least this isn’t an unbearable rooibos like some others I have had but at the end of the day it is still rooibos. Nonetheless, I am glad I got to try this and I definitely understand why others would find this delicious – I think I am just biased. Thank you Roswell Strange for letting me try a sample :)

VariTea sent this my way and it was off my wish list (at least I think it was V…if it was RS, apologies!) I had high hopes for this one but sadly all I’m getting is toffee flavoured wood. Bah. This is the sort of rooibos that I’m. It a fan of unless it’s spectacularly blended so a a not to be all, hey sil…go lick a tree for this taste :) oh well…good to know and be able to cross off my list. Hehe

VariaTEA

Haha it was me but Roswell Strange sent it to me first and I passed it along.

Roswell Strange

I sent it too because I sent some of every TD blend I own; you got some from both of us it seems :P

Sil

This one WAS from RS – checked this morning…so if there’s more in the here’re from V, then I haven’t come across it yet lol

VariaTEA

I sent this to you a while back, not in the most recent box I dropped off.

VariaTEA

Realistically, I think you would have tried it by now.
