drank Caramel Mate by Hooker Tea
6 tasting notes

Caramel Mate was one of my first loose teas. It really was the bridge from “Tea Dust” in a bag to the real deal. So I might be a bit biased with this lovely tea.

First of all, the tea came out to a lovely liquor brown. It smells of roasted leaves ( as it should be, it IS a roasted Mate) and a hint of sweetness from the caramel. It’s a nice combination and neither scent overpowers the other.

Unfortunately, I don’t taste the caramel. All I can pick up is the roasted Mate. It’s a pleasant and mild in taste and surprisingly it tastes better without the Carmel.

I give this tea a 4.5/5 because though it’s fantastic, the name lie’s about it’s true flavor.

Hot sticky summer morning in Florida. Iron Goddess and the whine of air conditioner.

Perfect Iced on a summer day. Semi-sweet but not “kool-aid” sweet. Very nice.

Woke up to the sound of rain. Either i’m in a classic rock song or florida in late summer. Either way, I accept my fate with Darjeeling Double Malt and some scrambled eggs.

My go-to black tea. Stevia and a little milk. Simple perfection.

my mind is going 200 miles an hour. The only thing I can think about is all the work I didn’t get done today and everything that must get done tomorrow. Brew a cup of rooibus and watch Jon Stewart. Sleep will come, but not yet.

Not a big Rooibus fan. Trying to change my mind.
