This is an odd tea, but tastes pretty much what you ‘d expect…that is sweet and salty. I think the black base is a little strong…either that or I over-leafed. This one is definitely warming me up though. Or maybe that was the yoga like stretching. Could be both, I suppose. It’s comforting, but I may sound bad when I say this…I think I’m gonna save my salted caramel tastebuds for Starbucks hot chocolate. I think I like it better that way. Maybe it is the chocolate? I dunno. I’ll have to try a mocha latte with the caramel and salt topping to see how that compares…maybe it is the chocolate.

This is good, but I doubt I’d buy it regularly. I have a decent sized sample from ShayneBear so I do thank him for letting me try it.

I generally like a lot of tea. I do find I have a preference for flavored over unflavoured, but I do love a good straight tea as well.

Likes are too hard, since there are a lot. Dislikes are easier, so here they are.

Hibiscus. Blech. I can tolerate a little, depending on the brew, like Berry Good from Davids and Ruby Pie from Butiki…but in general, it’s too tart and too strong for me.

Licorice. Anything that remotely resembles licorice is out too, so that includes fennel and anise. Yuck, yuck, yuck.

Florals. I’m cool with petals in the tea to make them look pretty, and I’m cool with teas like oolongs having a floral note, but strong florals can give me migraines. Rose and jasmine are the biggest offenders. This is one where it can vary on the blend, as I can handle Teavivre’s Peach Jasmine Dragon Pearl tea because there is very little jasmine actually detectable in it.

Rooibos is hit or miss. I can do some, but not others. I handle green better than red, and honeybush better than rooibos.

Um, I have an extensive wishlist. It is both a list of things I want to get again, and things I want to try. If you are sending me something, and you want to know which is which, I’ll tell you via PM.

My ratings don’t have a particular scale or method, and may on occasion contradict themselves, but I’m honestly not fussed about that. Sometimes I don’t even rate at all.

Uh, guess that’s it.
