I have been looking for a tea with rich caramel flavor built upon the solid base of a good black tea and this one is a definite contender. This is a tea to savor and enjoy.

Small dark dry leaves, tightly rolled with a sweetly earthy smell, produce a clear reddish-brown tea liquor. A nice base of Assam complimented by the rich sweetness of a butterscotch/caramel flavor. The aroma as the tea steeps is very enticing. I went for a resteep and, as expected, the sweet accent flavor diminished a bit but the base itself can stand up to a resteep. The aroma of the resteep was almost as strong as that from the original brew.

If you enjoy a caramel black tea, this one is worthy of your consideration. 1 solid teaspoon in 8oz of 210 degree water with a 4m steep and a 5m resteep worked well for me.
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Former coffee drinker. Switched to tea as part of my goal to work on living a healthier, more balanced life. Surprised to learn what a passion I have developed for all things tea related.

Steepster has been a big help – I’ve been reading daily to learn as much as I can. Thanks to Steepster reviews, I’ve been able to find good tea quickly – a few misses for me but lots of hits!

At the moment, I enjoy most tea types but I cannot handle jasmine or other florals and I’m not particularly fond of bergamot. Started with flavored teas but moved quickly into high quality blacks, greens, oolongs and pu’ers — drinking hot flavored teas less and less. My cold brews for iced tea usually seem to be a fruity green, white or rooibos but every once in awhile I’ll chill an oolong or pu’er.

Note: In an effort to keep track of all the teas I’ve tried, my cupboard includes any tea I’ve ever owned (including things I’ve sipped down and no longer have in my tea cupboard). In addition, many of the teas listed are unopened waiting to age or work their way into the rotation.
