I am so glad you can order 25 gram samples at the Tea Haus. So even if I dislike a tea, I know I can finish it rather quickly and it will not go to waste. And then later on, I can order larger sizes of whatever tea I enjoyed! :) They also have such a kind staff!
This smells like red rooibos with a hint of caramel. You can see tiny caramel pieces in this tea. Although the caramel to rooibos ratio is off. I think it has far too much rooibos, just looking at it visually.
I’m not sure if I got a bad scoop of this (since sometimes heavier pieces like caramel can fall to the bottom). However, this tea had no caramel flavour at all. It tasted mostly like a good, red rooibos tea.
The rooibos base is excellent and refreshing. But I gave this a lower rating because it did not live up to its namesake of being a caramel tea.
To improve this tea I would add more caramel flavouring and larger caramel chunks. That would balance out the ratio between the red rooibos vs. caramel
I think if you enjoy red rooibos, you will like this tea. But I prefer rooibos to be a very mild flavour in tea blends.
