drank Caramel by Kusmi Tea
4673 tasting notes

SIPDOWN! thanks to whatshesaid for letting me try this one. Still on the hunt for a perfect caramel tea but it was nice to cross this one off my list. It also confirms my suspicion that i’m not a huge fan of kusmi tea bases since most of their teas that i’ve tried i’ve been feeling pretty “meh” about.

I feel the same about Kusmi. And it’s such a shame, esp. as they have the cutest tins…

thanks girls for confirming what I think of Kusmi’s blends even if to be fair they always provide a decent blend.The disappointment often comes from the difference between the dry leaf scent and the taste after brewing.

Never really thought about the why and how, but you may be right. The meh-feeling is also partly due to other brands (Theodor, Marriage Freres, etc) just being that much better.

I agree! Not bad tea, but there is better out there, so why bother :)

Bio

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
