Interesting. I didn’t get the caramel notes as discribed. My first reaction was that it tastes like a sort of light cider. Definitely something you could enjoy on a cold snowy day. Still usually on such days I prefer that which a bit heavier and this is clearly light. I got this as a sample from David’s Tea so I don’t have any more to experiment with but I imagine if made stronger with more tea and longer steep time perhaps I could have added honey and maybe a little milk but that would be reaching for me. Nevertheless, it was alright and I imagine I will not be trying this again because if I wanted to I’d have to purchase it unless they send me more with another order and I simply didn’t like it enough to order more.
