drank Caramel by Kusmi Tea
15 tasting notes

Grade: B.O.P. (Broken Orange Pekoe)
Aahhhh… relaxing, comforting and tasty, that’s what this tea is. The dry tea smells of roasted sugar, butter and cream… does it get better than that? Not really. I brewed this tea for 5 minutes which I think is a great steeping time for Kusmi’s flavored chinese blacks. I’m not joking. The liquid tea smells exactly the same as the dry tea, but here the butter/cream notes are less dominating. Still very, very pleasing. The black tea itself is smooooooth, and doesn’t even has a hint of unpleasant bitterness. The caramel flavor is medium/strong, and absolutely not synthetic, I’m seriously in heaven right now, but it is even more delicious with sugar and hot milk (the one with 1,5% fat, or letmælk as we call it in Denmark). The tea is orangish-brown when brewed. I will DEFINITELY buy this tea again, no doubt there!

Dry tea-smell: Caramel (roasted sugar, butter and cream).

Hello
I’m from Denmark, and I have been drinking high quality teas since 2009. My favorite tea-brand is Kusmi Tea. Absolutely. So far I have tasted about 40 percent of Kusmi’s teas, which means about 35 teas. My favorite tea is Kusmi Tea’s Imperial Label. Everyone who hasn’t tried it yet, try it. Their Samovar OR their St Petersburg comes second. I do primary drink black teas, but also green ones. Especially Genmaicha.

I like green teas flavored, and black teas are to me flavorful, whether they’re flavored or not. I prefer plain, hearty black teas the old-fashioned British way; with a splash of milk. I would say, that the best plain black tea I have tasted is Darjeeling #37 or Russian Morning #24.
I like spicy teas too, and my all-time favorite teas are Kusmi’s russian teas. RUSSIAN POWER!!!!

I do not drink tea because it’s healthy, I drink it because it’s delicious!
