Settle in for a session with our house Caramel Rooibos, and prepare to be surprised. Among the benefits of this organic herbal tea are its rich texture, memorable blend of dessert flavors; and yet also a lightness that renders it satisfying but not overly filling.
Not bad for a blend that also adds some elemental health benefits to the mix.
But this isn't just any sweet caramel creme blend. This is a daring and bold rooibos mix with all of the richness and curious viscosity of the red-bush base taking charge as the sweet notes playfull round out the full flavored satisfying, lingering finish.
This ruddy, delicious blend boasts two simple favorites meeting in every sip. Rooibos, Afrikaans for Red Bush, is often lauded as a plainsland tea devoid of the fussier aspects of a fruit blend and more interesting than a classic black. We think that every tea has commendable qualities and every taste – defenders; still, it's rather hard to not express a unique level of satisfaction with this creamy sweet red tea.
Caramel rooibos tea can be enjoyed any time or place. Lush and thick flavouring makes for an adaptable experience. Seasoned tea drinkers will be able to mark every note and first-timers will find it an approachable and on-the-level luxury tea. No need to hide it away until a special occasion; enjoy this tea today!
Caramel, rooibos, and somewhere quiet to sit make up this cup of afternoon delight's offerings.
