I must be odd because I don’t like the way this tea smells in the bag but it smells alright once it’s steeped. But my goodness, the taste. It is all caramel. The black tea makes a nice base but it kind of gets lost in the yummy-ness of the caramel flavor. It begs for a bit of sweetness and is greatly enhanced by it. Dairy makes it taste like a caramel candy but it muddies the tea for me. A bit of sugar makes this tea addicting. I want to try it iced now!
