As far as caramel apple teas go, I prefer the one by the Market Spice. In my opinion, caramel apple should be sweet and so the spices in this add a flavor that are completely unnecessary. It detracts from what I believe should be the focus.

I also found a perfume-ish thing going on here.

I really was not a fan.

Hello.Kiki

The idea of a caramel apple tea sounds amazing! I’ll have to look up the one you mentioned.

The MarketSpice herbal teas are good but the others can be downright undrinkable (IMO). At least that was my recent experience with their Pumpkin Pie Tea.

I found this way too apple-y and not enough sweetness or carmel element.

VariaTEA

Apple was definitely most prominent but I feel the combination of spices and caramel just competed too much for either one to be enjoyable.

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.
