My favorite caramel tea. This particular tin has passed its prime—3 years old plus—but there’s still enough dark-sugar flavor for it to pass for a frosty-morning tea. Proof that faded tea can be as good as your favorite faded jeans.

Another morning where all the sweetness I can get (artifically or otherwise) is necessary. If you haven’t tried this, think burnt sugar instead of Milky Way or Caramello bar. Stay warm and be safe, wherever you are.

CelebriTEA

Mmm…ok…for me this means half of a HUGE pink grapefruit
With tons of Sugar In The Raw dumped on top and baked at 350
Until sugar is almost burned…grapefruit is kinda mushy and so YUM!
First tried this in Jamaica

Same to you! Though we had a freakishly warm day today.

Thanks to a nasty canker sore, every tea I have (painfully and agonizingly) sipped this week tastes like Orajel. Finally improving to the point I can pick up a little flavor, so I decided to treat myself to a sweet breakfast tea, this one from Michelle. (Did I goof? Is this supposed to be vanilla caramel?)

Straight up with no milk, I’m getting a good, dark strong burnt sugar flavor. Enough caffeine to be trusted for morning wake-up duty. Nothing to write rhapsodies about, but a good, sweet and solid tea.

The labels on my Adagio Vanilla and Caramel have gone back and forth too many times. I think I’ve figured out by smell which is which, but there’s a possibility I was wrong… I usually mix them anyway haha.

Ever since I upped my tea drinking, I have gotten so many canker sores. I must have been burning my mouth every time. I was wondering if I was the only one. Do you think you got it from burning your mouth?

gmathis

Did a little research on the cause of the confounded things—I get them every so often—possible causes are stress, poor nutrition (low on B12), hormones. Guilty on all three counts! I’d say if you’re susceptible to them, exposure to hot liquid doesn’t help much :)

Canker sores can be caused by several things:
– vitamin deficiencies (mainly B vit, because they are used to process things, & like it or not, caffeine has to be processed, as do artificial flavorings. C is also important here.
– viral – if you have a tendency towards oral herpes virus (don’t freak out, I’m not talking about the ‘Other’ herpes strains, although this applies to all of them), it’s important to minimize your use of chocolate & nuts, as both of these have an amino acid that feeds that virus (arginine). You can take a lysine supplement, which will fool the virus & help to put it back into remission, or eat foods high is lysine – meat, eggs, & legumes are your best sources. http://www.umm.edu/altmed/articles/lysine-000312.htm
– also make sure you’re drinking plenty of water! (in between cups of tea!) I have a rule for myself, which is to drink a qt of water every morning before I can start drinking tea, just to make sure I’m well hydrated because most teas have a drying effect.
– an interesting side note: Most of my vegan friends get cankers, as did I when I was one, along with an occasional bout of shingles. I good friend of mine & I were comparing notes recently, & neither of us have had any of those things since we added meat back into our diets (locally raised). I’m not trying to convert anybody, but it would make an interesting study.
Sorry to sound like a know-it-all! I’ve researched a lot of these things for years, in an effort to heal my body & feel good!

Here’s a website that also has some info on canker sores – http://www.animated-teeth.com/canker_sores/t1_canker_sores.htm

I use to get canker sores all the time. I’ve been lucky enough not to have any lately. I just googled “can tea cause canker sores” and it appears that having black tea can actually help.
“Have some tea. Several experts, among them dermatologist Jerome Z. Litt, M.D., recommend applying a wet, black tea bag to the ulcer. Black tea contains tannin, an astringent that “may pleasantly surprise you” with its pain-relieving ability, he says. There are over-the-counter medications available that contain tannin, such as Tanac."
Hope the pain goes away soon! I know how brutal they can be.

very interesting to know! canker sores aren’t the only things I’ve suffered through since I started drinking a lot of hot tea.. I also had the worst ever throat virus in my life, it was so painful I couldn’t drink tea for a week. I also have gotten yellow tongue. All that has happened this year, after my increased tea consumption. crazy! but that doesn’t stop me from drinking it haha
and I definitely believe the canker sores are stress and diet related as well, at least for me too. whenever I have tea with someone, they tell me I’m nuts because they can’t even touch their drink while I’m already sipping it. I’ve learned to wait now.

Terri HarpLady

LOL, I burn my tongue all the time. Lately I’ve been straining into a teapot, then pouring into a tiny cup, because in the little cup it cools a little quicker, so I can drink it sooner without burning myself! :D

gmathis

Thanks for the info and links, y’all. I’m trying to get back on a vitamin regimen with extra B, and I knew tea wouldn’t hurt (other than the temp!) I do think these happen cyclically … my mom always said, “Well, you know your resistance is down during that time…”

After I’ve finished steeping my tea, I set my timer and walk away, then come back when the timer beeps. It has probably saved me from many a scalding.

Adagio’s website calls this “dense and decadent.” I like that. It’s more of a burnt-sugar (molasses) caramel flavor than a Caramello caramel. Wonderful on a chilly morning with half and half.

Another storm survivor; dirt and sawdust free. Drank a cup in an unchipped mug on the farm where we’re refugeeing with my feet put up on a Rubbermaid tub. Was a blessing, for just a few moments, to lay eyes on a landscape that was green and lush and had trees with leaves and bark.

Agreed. Except I’d go as far as to say it’s perfect :)

Nothing to say about this tea that I haven’t already said. Just a great tea for any time of the day.

I like this tea because it’s the best of all worlds: refreshing, rich and calming. Good any time of the day, but I particularly like it in the afternoon.

This tea is easily one of my favorites. It’s a good caffeine-free pick-me-up for any time of the day. Foxtrot is a real treat for the senses: the flavors play off of each other very well, the smell is great, and it looks spectacular in the tin and while steeping.

Not really in a fancy tea mood today, so no-frills it is. I love this tea, it is a staple in my tea cabinet to fall back on when I can’t decide what tea to drink or don’t feel like having anything too extreme. It’s light and surprisingly wonderful.

This ceylon is a bit on the lighter side of sode of the ceylon’s I’ve had but is a winner nevertheless. I love that it is simplistic,refreshing and caffeinated…exactly what i’m looking for on a rainy morning like today to get motivated.

Boiling 4 min, 0 sec

…You know I’m tired when I read ‘Ceylon’ as ‘cylon’. headdesk

Not overwhelmingly fruity. The flavors blend well and seem to accentuate the Ceylon base of the two teas. Enjoyable.

Had a cup of this this afternoon. Boiling water for 4 min. I like the taste of it then. Any suggestions out there on how to do it differently that you liked? I would hate to be missing out on a world of flavor that I don’t know about.
