I really like caramel/toffee style rooibos blends, they’re possibly my favourite way to drink rooibos and a good staple to keep around for an evening when I’m craving something sweet. This is a really good one, and I finished off the last of it as a tea latte a couple of nights ago. I actually think I prefer this regular western steeped, without additives. That way, it’s delicious nutty toffee with a mild woodsiness from the rooibos. Drank as a latte, though, the base was a little overpowering of the gentle toffee and dessert flavours, which only really came out in the aftertaste. I think a touch of sweetener would have helped to coax them out more, but I didn’t have any maple syrup or brown sugar left so I drank it without. That being said, I did let it steep for a full 10 minutes, so it might be my fault that the rooibos was so prominent this time around. I still enjoyed it, but not necessarily quite as much as usual. I’ve added this back onto my wishlist, because when I eventually get through my old teas I might make a Tea Desire order, and if I do, this will be the first thing on my list.
