drank Salted Caramel by DAVIDsTEA
70 tasting notes

I have been craving a cup of this all last summer and autumn, and am extremely delighted to have it again in my cupboard. The first time I drank this tea was almost 2 years ago but for whatever reason I never got around to reviewing it. Ah well, better late than never…

The dry leaves have an enticing, smoky, sweet and salty aroma to them. I steeped them for roughly 4 1/2 minutes. Tea liquor has a deep golden hue with a strong scent of black tea. The first tastes are of liquid caramel with creamy undertones, supported by the full bodied black base. It has a pleasing, decadent mouth feel. Creme and sugar brighten up the nuances of coconut and toffee quite a bit. I’m not really tasting any salty flavors here, but there is a deep smokiness which balances the sweeter elements of this tea perfectly. Overall, a fabulous tea. By the way, thanks to whoever sent me samples of this, I’m not remembering at the moment. :)

I can’t use chopsticks. My favorite smells are lemongrass and fresh coffee. If I were to die of something fatal, it would probably be caffeine poisoning. Reading, photography, traveling, and cooking are just a few activities I enjoy. I am a native of Krasnoyarsk, but grew up in Alaska.

I enjoy most types of teas, but am partial to flavored black and green varieties specifically.
