drank Caramel-Toffee by Dammann Freres
1146 tasting notes

It’s just sitting here on my desk – how can I not try it? Yes, yes, I know I need to parse some out to various Steepsterites that have asked for samples or part of this order – and I will. I’m just waiting to pick up the NINE packages of tea currently waiting for me at the border, when the snow dies down a bit and I feel safer making my way there.

So until then… ;)

This is a lovely, full-bodied tea with zero sweetener needed, although it does punch up the caramel flavoring somewhat. And it’s the caramel here that takes center stage for me: chewy, juicy, gooey caramel amidst the black base. I could easily drink this every day.

Preparation

It’s super exciting. :) I’m going to hold off on trying anything else though until I get my butt to the border.

Bio

Teaholic! Currently loving flavored blacks, greens, whites, green rooibos blends, straight blacks and greens, and have a long-standing adoration for herbals/medicinals. Dessert teas top my list along with anything cocoa-y.

I own an obscene amount of tea, and am always happy to share. Having said that, I’m traveling indefinitely (currently in Ireland) so my stash will sit and wait for me, as I send back tea to explore more when I get home again.

In addition to loving tea, I’m a dating columnist, single mom, nerd, and avid knitter. I read way too much, type even more, and spend my ‘free’ time either running, swinging kettlebells, or hanging with friends.

Allergies: Strawberries and all grains. I’m having a mild allergic reaction to both lavender and some roses in tea, and thus I’m avoiding these for now as well. I also avoid sugar and Splenda where possible.
