Caramel? Is that something people taste, or the flavour that’s actually in this?

I get sweet sweet berries and coconut. Not much white tea at all. It’s really expensive, but if there’s a sale, snap it up quick! I got 100g for $10 in the 2/$5 packets that they no longer seem to be carrying in stores. What’s up with that, DavidsTea?

I just leave the tea bag in and refill with water whenever my cup hits half full. Yum.

I’m not sure on the caramel…is it what the mulberries taste like, or is it added flavour? For me it is a warmth within the notes of the tea….like warm and buttery, But sweet, yes. It is super expensive, so yes, for me it is a treat, as I certainly can’t afford this normally. I have considered adding more white tea to the bags to fluff it up some, but I don’t know if the flavour would change too much because of the ratio change. I got some recently, a small amount, but I had gotten the 2 for $5 when they had this in it. That was sweet.

The flavour is pretty strong and it works well if you add more white tea. I recommend steeping it cooler though. The nice thing about this one is I got 6 mugs out of 1 serving… So even though it’s expensive it re steeps well. (I just keep adding water, and I emptied my kettle. :)

Bio

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
