Another sample from Kristin. I used about 3 tsp of leaves to 12 oz of water and steeped at 170 for two and a half minutes. I didn’t really get taffy flavor out of this, but the caramel came through a bit. I had high hopes that this would taste like Teavana’s Apricot Caramel Torte, because I had read a review that it was very similar, but seeing the leaves and flowers in this tea and no fruit pieces mixed in, I through that similarity out the window. I’m glad I did because this tea is completely different. I like it’s mild sweet taste. Not one I would rush out to order, but a decent cup of flavorful green tea.
