Thursday Tea Time - Creme Brûlée

Still enjoying all my new Steeping Room Teas!

This week - The Steeping Room Creme Brûlée

Cost:  $7 from The Steeping Room in Austin, Texas
Number of tea bags/weight:  2 ounces
Caffeine:  No
Type of tea:   Tisane/Herbal - Rooibos
Steeping time:  3 minutes
Mix ins:  Not too bad by itself, however, Natural Bliss/cream and sugar, make it pop
Ingredients:  Rooibos, caramel bits (milk, sugar, glucose, butterfat, sorbitol syrup, emulsifier), artificial/nature identical flavor
Fragrance:   It really does smell like creme brûlée!
Opinion:  Advantages - is is rooibos/non-caffienated.  Versatile, an iced latte is also a yummy option.   Disadvantages - sorbitol syrup.  But it tastes great and really does have the flavor of creme brûlée, so it can be enjoyed in the afternoon/evening without worry about getting too buzzy.
Rating:  4 - only because of the sorbitol syrup.

caramel bits!
