I’m a big tea lover, and whilst Mr FFF often complains that I have too many boxes, pouches and packets of tea, my philosophy is the same as that which I apply to shoes and handbags – you can never have too many!
I used to drink buckets of English Breakfast Tea each day, but a few years ago I decided to reduce my consumption of caffeine. I substituted my usual brew with redbush/rooibos and, like with most things, I’m always keen to try new varieties.
I also love all things caramel so imagine my excitement when I came across these bad boys in Sainsbury’s: Rich & Indulgent Caramel Rooibos Infusions. Disregarding the likely inability to be able to fit them into the cupboard at home, I chucked them into the trolley hoping that the flavour would be as good as the promise – as experience has told me this is not always the case with flavoured teas.
I needn’t have worried. The cup of tea I enjoyed as soon as I’d put the shopping away more that delivered. It smelt of toffee popcorn and the taste didn’t disappoint either: it was sweet and creamy – almost like sucking a Werther’s Original. It was so sweet (though not sickeningly so) that I had to check the ingredients list to make sure there was no added sugar. As an added bonus, the teabags come individually wrapped so they’ll stay fresh while I enjoy all of my other tea varieties.
I can’t see maintaining freshness being too much of a problem though as this has quickly become a firm favourite of mine and is perfect for enjoying on a cosy, autumnal evening.
