I adore salted caramel, but this tea did NOT cut it for me. The dry leaf smells great, maybe a little on the sweet side. I brewed this for five minutes. There was quite a bit of scum (melted caramel) floating on the top. I added 1/2 tsp of sugar and some cream. The tea itself is alright, but the ‘salted caramel’ flavor to me reminds me of a musky potpourri. I don’t taste any salt, any caramel. I had three sips of this and cannot drink any more. Too bad, it sounded so promising.
