Caramel Macchiato from Teas, Etc.

Brewed 4 minutes at 208 degrees
China teacup with a metal infuser

I’m not a coffee drinker, so I don’t have any taste comparison for this, but I can’t imagine anyone who likes sweet caramel with a hint of tobacco (pipe tobacco/sweet smell) not liking this tisane. Blended with rooibos, caramel pieces and essential oil, it is my new favorite dessert/late-night drink, hands down. Naturally sweet, it’s got a great medium texture and the rooibos and caramel complement each other perfectly.

I only had a sample pack to try, but I’m definitely going to be ordering a larger quantity soon. This will certainly be a staple in my tea cupboard from now on.


  1. When you say it's going to be a staple in your cupboard and that it's your new favorite dessert tea "hands down," that says a lot to me. If I ever get the chance to order some of this, I will try it. Thanks, Jamie!

  2. After your description, I'm ready to make myself a cuppa this right now. The first time I had rooibos caramel tea was in Germany, and I was hooked. I think I had a German brand then (2001), but I'm seriously going to look into buying some of this based on your review.
