I picked up 10g of this to try. In the store, I wasnt really sure if I liked it or not but decided to try it. I’m so glad that I did because I love the taste. Its very similar to salt-water taffy. I will definetely be buying more of this soon!

There’s no better treat than a salted caramel. You won’t find this in your history books, but we’ve heard that Romeo seduced Juliet with a salt-sprinkled toffee. Rich, buttery and sweet with a kiss of salt – who can resist? So it goes without saying that it makes for a seriously delicious tea. This is a rich black tea blend, strewn with pieces of English toffee, coconut, caramel and a touch of French sea salt. It’s guaranteed to seduce your taste buds.
Ingredients: Black tea, coconut, caramel bits, English toffee bits, sea salt, natural and artificial flavouring*.

So, I’m drinking this tea right now. It’s not in my cupboard. A friend has it at her desk and I wanted to try something new.
I steeped it for about 6 minutes. Not sure if it was long enough to really let the caramel flavour out. It’s nice, and not overwhelmingly sweet or salty. It didn’t rock my world or anything, but I’m enjoying it none-the-less.
I realize this Tasting Note is probably quite pointless for others as it doesn’t really say much (which is quite close to how I feel about this tea), but I’m determined to log every tea I try, so here it is.
EDIT: I used my DavidsTea tea-press to make this tea and as it continues to steep, the flavours really start to develop into a much richer, more caramel-y brew.
Salted caramel, usually i love stuff that has caramel in the title like Starbucks Salted Caramel hot chocolate or Presidents Choice’s new Salted Toffee Cheesecake pops. So it was safe to say that i would probably like this tea.
When i got the chance to smell it at the store i couldn’t really smell anything at all, but i decided to give it a chance. I bought a 3$ cup of tea. And honestly i only usually put milk and a tiny bit of sugar in the black teas that i drink. After letting this tea cool for like what seemed an hour i finally took a sip and it tasted like warm milk water so i had to add a tone more sugar before i could taste anything at all. Therefor i would not reccommend this tea for anyone who likes their tea without milk and sugar.
Dry Leaf Nose: Sweet, almost chocolatey notes.
Liquor: Dark rich brown.
Flavour: Subtle caramel flavour.
Who doesn’t love salted caramel? I know I certainly do, so you can imagine my excitement upon opening up this tea this morning.
While I won’t say it tastes just like a cup full of melted caramels, this is by no means a bad thing. The fact is when it comes to these flavoured black teas I like the flavours to be much more subtle. It also reminded me of another tea I’ve tried in the past, but I couldn’t quite put my finger on what exactly it was…
That said, this one could probably stand to taste a bit more like caramel, though perhaps with a stronger steep it would accomplish this.
It’s always tough to know how long to steep these new teas. My first try I tend to go the shortest time and work my ways up (thankfully there seems to be plenty of tea to make more than one cup).
But again, it’s a really lovely tea, one that’s not too sweet or artificial tasting which is exactly what I want. I wouldn’t go so far as to call it a desert tea (like, say, Pumpkin Chai) since the flavours are much more subtle, making it a much more well rounded tea. This one is definitely high on my “revisit” list.
While being thoroughly impressed with the previous sample’s in my ever-so-beautiful David’s Tea Advent Calendar, this specific rendition disappointed me. Despite my distaste for anything salted carmel, I steeped this with an open mind, hoping to be blown away similarly to my reactions of Buttered Rum and Chocolate Rocket. However, no such pleasure satisfied my taste buds, the bitterness of my mug turned me away and I drained out the majority of the contents that I originally brewed. Not impressed David, not impressed.
I had a hard time finding a good way of drinking this tea. The dry leaf aroma is outstanding, and I could probably just sniff at my little jar of tea all day and be perfectly happy.
I think I oversteeped the tea both times I tried it, so I actually discovered Steepster while trying to figure out the best method of drinking this tea. The third time I tried is the charm, though I might add a bit of full-fat milk in a further cup. I can taste the caramel, but as other reviewers said, no salt. I did add a bit of brown sugar, which really brought out the caramel for me and made it a nice tea to drink. I don’t think it’ll be a permanent part of my cupboard, but I am happy I found a good means of drinking it now.
Let me start out by saying it is very, VERY hard to get a 100/100 rating out of me (in fact i’ve never given one!) But if any tea deserves it, it’s this one! Wow! This smells great, looks great, and tastes even better. This may be the best tea from David’s and probably the BEST tea i’ve ever had! David’s is constantly introducing new blends and each one seems to have improvement, I hope it keeps going that way :) HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
