TeaGschwendner Rooibos Cream Caramel

TeaGschwendner’s lists the ingredients as including rooibush tea, caramel bits, and natural flavor. The dry leaves had the woodsy rooibos smell with just a hint of creamy sweetness. I brewed this tea using my Zarafina tea maker, set on strong herbal. The liquor had a deep red color that was typical of most rooibos teas I have had.

This tea was rich and decadent with a pleasant aftertaste. The flavoring was not overpowering to the rooibos base but was just enough to complement it. I would be curious to know what they used to get the creamy taste because it so perfectly on the money. I even resteeped this tea a second time because I enjoyed it so much. I would definitely recommend this tea.
