So I had made a really fun tournament bracket for all my chai teas to face off and then I woke up having an upset stomach today. :p Basically I will be going through some non-caffeinated stuff for the next few days, I think.
Preparation: Western + oatmilk
Tasting note: Plain the tea what pretty powerfully rooibos flavored, it had a sweetness and some vanilla notes. Like usual, I added oatmilk pretty quickly. This helped mellow out the rooibos and made it much more creamy like a flan. There was a slight caramel note, not in a candy like way just in a richness from the rooibos that I sort of get the feeling of this creamy, caramel custard. I think I would try it was a latte to see if it felt close to the caramel taste.
I think this was a nice herbal tea, the rooibos on it’s own was pretty potent but I could scale back on how much I use and the steeping time.
Flavors: Caramel, Creamy, Sweet
