So I have a love affair with salt. I always have. I put it on everything. This year my Easter basket from my Mom had all kinds of gourmet salts in it, yum! Even black lava salt from Hawaii, I was so excited! I love chocolate with sea salt, and also caramel with sea salt. This tea was recommended after my not-so-great experience with Cococaramel Sea Salt from Teavana, so I am excited to try it.

The dry leaves smell like sweet caramel with an odd hint of vinegar, and the tea liquor is the same. It’s not terrible, like the vinegary smell in Butterscotch from Angelina’s Teas, but I definitely noticed it. Thankfully there is none of that sour taste in the tea. There is a malty and buttery flavor with a light, rich caramel aftertaste. I’m definitely tasting the caramel, but not so much the salt. Maybe a little bit in the aftertaste, or that may be because I want to be able to taste the salt so bad! Overall, this is a nice tea, even without the salt. I will just have to keep looking for my perfect sweet/salty tea. Thank you, akgrowngirl for this tea! :)

As someone with 9 (9!!) different kinds of salt on her kitchen counter, I understand.

Haha, glad I’m not the only salt lover, Anyanka. My mom got the salts for me from San Francisco Salt Company, I’m pretty impressed so far!
