New Virtual Tea Tastings FREE! #2
Hi, I have one thing to clear up before writing my review. The Milk Chocolate Caramel on your site is a black tea base and the one listed in Steepster is a green tea base. So, which was sent out? I just added a black base to Steepster but I wanted to make sure which was the one I have (it looks black but tasted kind of green to me). I need the other ingredients too, I have allergies to rooibos, honeybush.
just checked the steepster and it shows as a black tea base both in description and marked as black tea. I do not see a green tea based one listed.

I am finding I am surprised by how deep of a cup this is – bold – dark – but definitely a MILK chocolate – its just quite robust. Oh I am having the milk chocolate caramel at the moment by the way.
Chocolate Chai was awesome!! the pepper in there was most excellent I really enjoyed it
I’ve never had pepper in a tea (but I might have recently ordered some that I haven’t tried yet). Sounds tasty!
it was a very nice touch, i love dark chocolate candy bars with cayanne pepper so I was not new to such a great combination
I find that the caramel notes come out more in the after taste – they are present in the sip – but they build in the after taste.
I noticed that many people either go the caramel or a honey like flavor that you described. I wonder if it has to do with the type of sweetener used or if one was used at all.
I did not use a sweetener. I feel the honey flavor is still there yet it has tamed since the first time I sampled it.
I got a honey/milky note too moreso than straight-up caramel, but it was still quite tasty!
Milk chocolate caramel definitely has the milky feeling/taste!
Did you enjoy it? Was the caramel present for you or did you experience more of a honey flavor?
Hmm. Actually now that you mention it that might be a bit closer, I’m also not sure how much of the chocolate I got. It is tasty though!
I got all caramel goodness when it was unsweet, sweeten and the milk chocolate shows
I smelled by cup after drinking it all and I can smell the caramel there, didn’t taste it a bunch. Maybe I’m used to a different caramel flavor, more artificial?
Whiskey flavors come through near the end, unsweet and slightly cooled, very nice :)
