drank Caramel by Kusmi Tea
537 tasting notes

I’m so excited to be drinking this for breakfast! I have come to really love this blend. I have been waiting to make any more tea orders/purchases until later this year and some of my stock goes down. When that time comes I may be getting this in my cupboard. I really loved it and am excited to try even more of Kusmi’s blends. Their tins are really pretty and I love the two that I’ve tried. Who could go wrong! I also saw recently that they have mini tin sets with an assortment of teas. SO CUTE!!! I couldn’t ask for a more gift-able product.
As for this tea, I love the base of this tea. It is apparent in the flavor of the tea without overwhelming it. I do not always enjoy plain black teas; but I love flavored blacks more than others for some reason. I think that certain blends have this hardy/strong base that helps improve the flavoring. This and 52 tea’s Pancake Breakfast are great examples of this.
Overall this is a great tea. I would recommend it wholeheartedly to any lover of dessert/flavored varieties.

I want to try this one! Would you like to swap for something in my cupboard? :-D

Tamm

I only have a tiny bit left (maybe 4 cups?) but if you’d still like to I’ll look through your cupboard!

TeaBrat

sure – but I wouldn’t want to take away your last bit of the tea. :)

Tamm

psh! I got it as part of a package from Angrboda and I’d be happy to share! Besides, you probably do have something I’d like to steal! :p hehehe

Angrboda

My tentacles! They get everywhere! MWAHAHAHAHAHA! I mean, I’m so glad I can share by degrees. :D
Me, I’m a little concerned about this one. I’m out, and the shop where they have a whole lot of Kusmi haven’t had ANY of the caramel the last three times I checked. O.O They only have it in those large fill-a-bag containers, and since I don’t know what the turn over in those are or how many people have had their hands down the tin or whether or not those were clean hands… I’m not so keen. Lucky I got that Toffee from LPdT!

TeaBrat

I am tempted to buy some from Kusmi but they need to offer cheaper shipping…

Tamm

:p I love that many of the teas I’ve had have traveled! It makes it more special :3. I almost ran and got that toffee one after your review Angrboda! It sounds wonderful. How much is the Kusmi shipping exactly?

TeaBrat

I thought it was around $8 or $10 from what I recall. They send everything via Fed ex ground.

Tamm

huh I guess I haven’t ordered from anyone in a long time! It doesn’t sound too bad but I guess that depends on how much I want to buy.
Amy, wasn’t it you who was jonesing for some Hashiri Sencha?

TeaBrat

no, it wasn’t me and the Sencha. And I usually try to stick to places that charge me $5 or less. :)

Tamm

lolol How can I ever keep people straight?! The shipping thing is exactly why I was so excited when David’s said they were offering $5 shipping for the US. I still haven’t put in my order, but I’m dying to!
