I am by no means a huge fan of rum or rooibos, so I wasn’t particularly excited when I got two sample packets of this with my purchase. But I was pleasantly surprised when I tried it! The strong scent really mellows out to a light caramel flavor with only a little hint of rum. I do think the rum flavor came out more clearly as it cooled down, so if you’re like me and don’t enjoy that, drink it hot!
I also tried it with milk, and I think I the caramel and nutty flavors shine through better without.
