Many thanks to both TastyBrew and Lindsey for this tea. I was so excited to give this a try since Butiki does flavored blends so well. I’ve enjoyed most of the flavored teas from Butiki and I love caramel & vanilla — it seemed so perfect!

The scent of this tea is sugary sweet with a hint of a toasty black tea base. In a way, it reminds me a little bit of Lucky Charms marshmallows. I’m bracing myself because it smells very, very sweet. Sipping…first I taste the lovely black tea. It’s not bitter or too strong at all. In fact, it’s smooth and slowly turns into a very strong sweetness. It’s the nicest combination of caramel and vanilla, although I can’t seem to separate the two. It’s almost like I have a very sugary caramel between my teeth. The tea and flavoring give me the impression of a golden marshmallow. I can actually detect the roasted aspect, not just the fluffy sugar! How interesting! It’s not even supposed to be a marshmallow tea… but it works.

The finish is buttery and a little bit like a soft frosted cereal. Very nice and very rich. I’m impressed with this tea and look forward to drinking it when I’m in the mood for something sweet. This would satisfy any sugar or dessert craving quite well. Delicious!
