This is one of many teas that I picked out from Southern Season when I visited the store for the first time on Saturday. The dry leaves smell amazing, very strongly of vanilla and caramel. The tea liquor was a little bland at first, but once I added a little sweetener it became a wonderfully smooth tea with a nice, strong caramel finish. Perfect for a cold and rainy night!

-Dry blend has medium black tea leaves with caramel cubes and yellow petals.
-Dry leaves smells like caramel and vanilla. Tea liquor aroma is of creamy caramel.
-Tea liquor is a clear dark golden yellow color.
-Light caramel toffee flavor and finish. Smooth texture.
-Best with sweetener. Milk optional.
-Good tea. A simple, smooth and sweet cup. Flavor becomes richer as cup cools.

The rating confuses me. Sounds like you liked it well enough.

I actually didn’t mean to rate it yet. Is there a way that I can just put in notes about a tea and leave it unrated until I’m ready to officially rate it? I thought I saw some people do this, but I couldn’t seem to figure it out late last night. :)

I just noticed last night that there is a little X to the left of the rating bar that will take a rating off.

Oh that’s good to know, thanks Nicole! :)

Oh, Josie, I hope you went to Night Gallery, too! Just down the hall! I hope to go soon!

I had never heard of Night Gallery until your comment and I just googled it. Oh my goodness, I want to go NOW! This tea note was actually from back in the Fall, so it’s been awhile since I’ve been to Southern Season too. Considering that next week is my spring break I may just have to make a trip to Chapel Hill! :)

Just a Southern girl who loves sunshine, little dogs and all things tea!

I love animals and animal rescue. We have a rescued Chihuahua, Greyhound, Siamese and 2 Tabbies. We also foster kittens for the local humane society.

My favorite teas are sweet and malty black teas but I try to branch out and taste them all. :)
