drank Toffee Caramel Rooibos by Tealux
347 tasting notes

I opened this bag and was a bit overwhelmed by the scent – very caramel but also kind of boozy, like a caramel flavoured liqueur. It’s pretty intense while steeping too. I put a heaping teaspoon in a bag (hooray for remembering that rooibos + mesh filter basket = badness) and just let it hang out in the mug while sipping, so the steeping time is a bit vague but in the realm of 5+ minutes. This is actually pretty good! Slightly sweet and good caramel flavour, without being too weird or artificial-tasting. A good after-dinner caffeine-free tea.

Flavors: Caramel

Preparation
1 tsp 10 OZ / 295 ML

Well it has been over a year and everyone I know thinks my tea obsession is a bit out of hand, so… I guess I’m not a total newbie anymore. :)

I’m drinking a lot more pure tea these days, though I still love a good flavoured blend too. Current favourites: Chinese and Taiwanese blacks, fresh Chinese greens, oolongs both green and roasted, sheng puer.

I really love companies that buy directly from tea farmers, and have an emphasis on quality and sustainability. Favourites: Verdant, Whispering Pines, Eco Cha, White 2 Tea. I live in a small town in the middle of nowhere, so I buy almost all my tea online.

For hot tea, I’m usually brewing in either a 100ml gaiwan, or a 10oz mug with a steeping basket. For cold tea, I cold brew overnight in 500ml mason jars.

My cupboard on Steepster doesn’t include small samples, just the ones I have at least 15g of. So if you see something you’re interested in, I probably have enough to share. :)
