This is my second rooibos from Tea Guys, and I’ve gotta say, I’m liking their rooibos.
Upon opening the bag, I was hit with a most definite sea salt caramel thing… there are nuggets (mine are round, not square like the picture) of caramel mixed in, and I’m a sucker for that… When I’m going for a flavoured tea, I love when I can SEE a bit of what’s going into that flavour. These aren’t little nuggets, either.. They’re pretty substantial for a tea. It’s great!
I might like this one even better than the bourbon egg nog one last night, because this one isn’t as sweet on it’s own. Being in control of the level of sweetness (if any at all, even), is something I really do appreciate, and this tea totally hands that control over to the sipper.
I know that I could add sugar to this right now and amp up that caramel taste, but I’m enjoying this with a little cream at the moment… The scent is very caramel-y, while the sip is a little more subdued… It’s really nice, actually.
I can see myself craving this as a night-time treat
ETA: halfway through this cup, I added just a sprinkle of raw sugar. Oh, man, is it good! This is a super yummy rooibos, and I’m really glad I grabbed 3oz of this. :)
