drank Caramel Spice by DAVIDsTEA

Blech! What went wrong with this one? It smelled delicious in its innocent little baggy, but brought about a decidedly murky-looking and -tasting cup. I could smell the mulberries and the caramel but I couldn’t taste either. The spice was definitely upfront but it wasn’t a good kind of spice. Just muddled and a bit dirty-tasting.

I steeped this one for somewhere in the suggested time range, which I don’t normally do. I was scared of it lacking flavour so went with the longer suggested time, but a hint of bitterness tells me I should have gone with my gut and kept it shorter. Hopefully that will improve this!

I agree. I thought this one smelled great and I would love it but the cup I had last night I couldn’t even drink it all. It was so gross. Not sure if I am willing to try this again.

I’m glad I’m not alone! So strange.
