It’s ok, this tea. I can taste the caramel, oh how could one not for it is loaded, and it really is a pleasant tea. Not sweet enough for me so I would normally add sugar except I am really trying to eliminate sugar especially now that we are trying to lose the weight gained overseas. I know a sugar free diet is not sustainable for me but if I can get used to less, I would love it.

The dry leaf smells great. It is quite dark, has bits of caramel throughout but it also has those darned yellow petals I could do without.

Steeped for 3 minutes and added nothing to it. It is pleasant indeed. It could be oh so good for me with some sugar. It brews dark. Not caramel dark but black tea dark.

I am getting no citrus whatsoever but I am ok with that since I am not into citrus all that much.

Should you buy it? You can get a small pack, it won’t disappoint. You might get bored with more.

Im a fairly recent follower of the loose leaf tea drinking cult. March 2013 to be exact. Never been much into tea before. Growing up in Romania, tea was something mom made for you when you were sick. As an adult, my hot beverage of choice has been coffee, both flavoured and regular. I’ve recently stumbled upon Teavana and DAVIDs TEA and quickly got addicted to the latter. Then came steepster and all else followed.

Formerly a mathematician and insurance adjuster, I gave up the corporate world and am now a professional chef. I drink wine and sometimes cheat on it with tea.

I prefer flavoured teas. It’s probably the newbie in me. I just don’t get cravings for a straight black tea. If I end up having one, I drop in a slice of lemon and artificial rum flavouring (ugh, what moron admits to this?). A black tea fixed this way reminds me of skating at an outdoor rink as a young one, with a thermos full of tea made just as I described..

Im learning so I drink them all. everything! Am even introducing myself to pu’erh. So far I can do fine with the sheng cause frankly, they don’t taste like pu’erh to me. The shou is another story.

NOTE: The virtual cupboard does NOT contain any of the samples I hold since most of them are one-cup quantity. Home improvements, mortgage, travel, wine and food have budget priority over tea.
