While I may not always go for a rooibos, this one smelled lovely – just like a dessert!
Description: “A rich and creamy blend of rooibos, caramel and cocoa.”
Review: Like many of the blends that I have tried from this brand so far, the first thing that I noticed was the strong aroma. While it is named “caramel”, the dominant smell was actually the cocoa.
The caramel smell did show up in the reddish-brown liquor along with a faint cocoa smell. The liquor itself had a very classic earthy and woody taste, as was expected from a rooibos. It was followed by lingering sweetness and faint cocoa taste on the tip of the tongue.
Letting the liquor cool allowed for a richer coffee-like character to show up intermixed with earthy notes. I enjoyed the range of flavours in this one. I think that this would make a really good latte (3.5/5 rating).
