drank Salted Caramel by DAVIDsTEA
2370 tasting notes

The smell of this brewed is rather cloying and very hard to get passed. The taste of caramel is there but weak and the aftertaste is salty. I am definitely not a fan. This cup is going down the drain and the rest of the 10 g I have is going into the swap box which seems to be growing rather quickly.

Yikes. I have some of this too to try out.

Hopefully you enjoy it more than I did. Tbh salted caramel teas just have not been my thing. I was not a fan of this and I didn’t really enjoy Teavana’s CocoCaramel Sea Salt.

I was okay with CocoCaramel Sea Salt, although I only had it in a blend with some honeybush and something else… blanking out now.. that the staff member told me was her “personal blend” to make it into Red Velvet Cake. While I got a different flavor feel from it, it was still a nice combo.

I preferred CocoCaramel Sea Salt to this but neither of them were really for me

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
