drank Creamy Toffee by Kaleisia Tea
470 tasting notes

While madly digging through my samples yesterday for Black Jasmine Cream, I stumbled upon a packet of this from my box from LiberTEAS from ages ago! It was hiding down at the bottom, sneaky but I’m going to drink you no matter where you hide.

I have tried quite a few caramel and toffee teas, so many that they kind of seem to blend together. And they almost always have a black base! One of those CTC, who knows what kind of black it is bases that pretty much just tastes like “tea.” Strong tea, but I’m not picking up any specific notes other than “oh yeah, this is definitely tea!”

The caramel is quite strong, as you’d expect since there are little toffee chips in here. But it’s kind of flat: not toasty or particularly rich. You know what this reminds me of? Those butter cookies in the individual packs they sell in cafeterias. Tasty, curbs your sugar craving, but you’d never sit around craving a cookie and think of that specific one.

Tea has always been a passion of mine, though I got away from it during college. A lack of cupboard space and a constant influx of people into my suite made me pretty much abandon my teas at home. But now that I’m done with school, it’s definitely come back with a vengeance—to the point where I’ve purchased about 65 different kinds in the past 3 months!

I like most kinds of teas—yes, even peach, which I used to think I disliked!. Oolongs are definitely my favorite, and I’m an avid fan of earl grey, floral teas, and chai blends along with anything melon. The only kind of teas on my “no” list are rooibos blends (which gives me headaches) and banana flavored ones since bananas are public enemy #1 in my mind.

The best thing about tea for me is how you can be passionate about it and still have it integrate into all of your other hobbies. I like a lot of things: writing, video games, books, sewing, figure collecting, astronomy… it’s a long list. But whatever I’m doing, I can have a cup of tea in hand!
