Not one with a sweet-tooth, it is somewhat surprising that I chose the Tea Total Rooibos and Caramel tea, today at Columbus Cafe. But, to my delight, it is not at all overpoweringly sweet. In fact, it is not really very sweet at all. Which is a particular pleasure, because I find caramel tastes far better the less sweet that it is.
Initially, I must admit, I was vaguely disappointed upon my first sip; I could taste a splendidly velvet caramel, although, Mr. Rooibos seemed absent! However, this dismay soon dissipated as I continued to gulp, for Mr. Rooibos, it turns out, is a brewtastic flavour-ninja, slinking silently throughout the shadows and creeping delicately onto my palate, fading into my soul; reassuring me, he is here.
A smile wanders across my face. I feel warm. I feel content. I feel secure.
I like this tea.
