I was excited to try this tea, it smells so good in the bag and looks fun with popcorn pieces and what I thought was coco puffs.

First sip tasted a little buttery but it smelled and tasted strange, some kind of seasoning. I tried to keep an open mind about it but I could not finish the cup. I poked at the coco puff that looked like a chickpea after being steeped and it was kind of gooey. I even tasted it, big mistake it was a concentrated taste of this strange tasting tea.

After coming on here I found out it was some kind of caramel ball and 1 out 3 people enjoyed it with milk and sugar. I gave it another chance, I had to add more sugar than I ever felt comfortable adding and I was able to get 1 sip in-between other sips taste like a caramel popcorn with my eyes closed, I did not finish this cup either.

If I ever feel brave enough to try this again I will do it without the caramel ball. Thanks moraiwe for the experience and I was glad to see you did not like it either.

Adding: I had some caramel popcorn this weekend and I was surprised how much it reminded me of this tea. Movie theater seasoning peaking through the not completely caramel covered almost burnt popcorn. Not the best caramel popcorn :(

I was hoping you’d be in the camp that liked it. Sorry to hear it was a similar icky experience for you too

Haha Kat_Marie, I’m glad you got a laugh. If only I read moraiwe’s tasting note first, she nibbled at the “coco puff”

It’s ok moraiwe, it was fun! We know at least one person likes it so there must be more.

Yeah, whatever that weird chickpea ball is, it’s definitely the culprit that ruins this tea. I couldn’t drink it at all. Tasted like dish soap.

I feel I have lost part of my identity.
I was addicted to coffee until I got sick Dec 1 and since then I have had 3 6 cups of coffee(I lost count but it’s not everyday and I don’t enjoy it like I once did). Now all I can think about is tea. I do not know if this is a phase or not but I’m enjoying it.

I’m having fun trying dessert teas right now. It has helped me eat less without even trying and I have lost a few unwanted pounds which surprised me during this past holiday season.

I love Earl Grey, Earl Grey Cream, Vanilla black teas. I like straight blacks I just don’t know how to describe them yet. I have a hard enough time describing flavored teas.

Please don’t pay attention to my notes, my taste changes all the time and sometimes if I only try something once I don’t always get the opportunity for it to grow on me or understand it better.

Maybe this is weird, one of the reasons I do tasting notes is to practice writing. I would like to go back to school before my school money expires and I regret it but I’m not ready yet.

Steepsters is the best community!
I love everyone here :)

I’m a stay at home mom/wife most of the time and work part-time at a local coffee shop.

I’m looking into knitting just so I can make cozy for my Timolino.
