From DAVIDsTEA

Sweet indulgence

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*.

Allergens: soy, coconut, dairy, nuts

EDIT: Tasting note 300!

Yum! Picked up 25g of a bunch of new teas from Davids today… to celebrate the first paycheck of course :D! (So happy there is no tax on tea here) Also picking up some last minute teas for the tea swap aaand some awesome cute kids stickers! Yay!

This is a pretty decent caramel black. Good job Davids. It’s creamy and sweet – and I looove the addition of the sea salt with the toffee bits. Brewing it at home was great – not bitter at all after steeping for about 3 minutes, and when I accidentally walked away from my resteep for 10 minutes, it was also not bitter! That was very lucky. I added milk anyways :P

Man I am rambly lately. Ramblo. Anyways! Right now I don’t need a caramel black in my cupboard, but when I do I think this one will be it. Lots of toffee chunks, and I loved the rounded flavour the coconut gave it (coconut sucker alert).

Maybe I will try it as an iced latte – but I might just stick to hot. With a dash of rum. OR Caramilk Liqueur? hmm

Bonnie

tempting!

Hesper June

Ooooo, sounds simply decadent!

Missy

haha Ramblo! That was quite awesome there. :D

Kittenna

This sounds good. It’s definitely on the shopping list! Along with all those other new ones they released… will it ever end?!

I missed your edit and was wondering about all the ‘300, yay!’ posts, but assumed I just hadn’t read something carefully enough… anyhow, congrats! I keep missing my milestones, but I’m determined to catch #500, which should be upcoming within a week or two :)

Happy 300th!!! Woot!

I feel bad about trying this tea when i have so many of MY teas to get through. however my pregnant friend is having her tea cupboard stay with me until i either drink it all up, or she can start tolerating the smell of tea again. So until then, it means i have a bunch of David’s tea i get to try. For free. which is a good thing in my books, given my rather blase opinion of david’s tea. So…today? Since i was on a caramel kick, i tried this one.

so this one? it does taste like caramel..and there is a bit of that salted caramel feel. but it’s icky. there’s an after taste i don’t like. Maybe i steeped it for too long but this is not what i want from a caramel tasting tea.

Ah, guess it’s not for everyone. I personally liked it but not enough to get more. But yay for tea-sitting!

AmyTran96

That’s interesting, this is actually one of my favourite teas and I’d occasionally leave the tea bag in to steep all day.

Sil

Good to know Amy. Must just be that I don’t like it hahaha. I’m glad others enjoy it though, and clearly my friend does. :)

I was also not a fan of this one

I’m not going to say this is my favorite tea, but of the other teas in my office this one has a label that says “medium caffeine” while the others say “low caffeine”. I’m trying to ween myself off of caffeine, and as much as I love my tea…I’m also a guilty coffee/energy drink drinker. This is such a painful withdrawl and I’m open to any and all suggestions you have to offer. I can promise that none of my clients/employer meetings today are getting my A Game.

Cavocorax

Aww. Maybe more tea and less coffee? Doesn’t coffee have way more caffeine than tea? And then you still get some, and good flavours?

Jackie T

I’m trying to do more tea, less coffee…I usually have a cup of coffee each day (sometimes 2) and an energy drink when I get home, so thats about…350-400mg of caffeine each day. So far today I’ve had 2 cups of black tea, which is like 80mg total…it’s such a crazy difference in caffeine content! I’m realizing that these next few days may be tough, but THANK GOD for tea friends and Steepster, and also tons of delicious tea flavors!!

Dexter

IMHO, you should reduce slowly, caffeine withdrawal is real, nasty headaches etc. If you need to cut back, I would do it slowly on work days and maybe more aggressive on days you aren’t working. Cutting back from 400mg to 80 is not going to be fun. Maybe consider 300 for a couple of days 225 for a couple of days, etc until you get down to a level that you are comfortable with….

Shmiracles

yup agreed here! definitely taper.
and drink lots of water too.
also, i’ll just add another encouraging note, if you ask me cutting down on caffeine was probably one of the top healthiest changes i made in my life over the past 5 years. so there really is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Jackie T

Thank you so much, tea friends! I’ve been drinking a ton of water and it helps so much, and once I was really immersed in work for the day the headaches subsided a bit. I have a 4:30-8:30 shift after work today for my job at MAC, so I think I might try a half caf coffee or something to help me through that, I think it’s going to be a slow night there.

I bought this tea maybe forever ago when it first came out. Just a sample size. Ever since then, I’ve been thinking about trying it. I’ve never had the opportunity since I think of black teas as morning teas. Having them any later would seriously mess with my sleep. And I keep forgetting to bring it to work and my weekends have been very busy lately. Sigh. There’s a lot going on right now. Today, I’m actually going to take the 3 hour trip to see my parents, so I’m really supposed to be leaving soon. But I need just a bit of time for myself this morning with a cup of tea. So I guess I’ll be arriving later.

This tea smells really great dry. I may have brewed it a little too long. The taste is not really that pleasant to me. It smells like caramel candy and it even tastes like it, but there’s also something weirdly sourish and unpleasant. I don’t think I’ll rate it since it may be because I let it brew for like 10 minutes. I did use a lower steeping temp though. Added a bit of milk and sugar to make it tastier. It’s ok now, but I think I’ll stick it in the fridge for husband to finish.

I also have some good news! Don’t know why it took me so long to let it out here. I was offered a permanent job this week. This means I can finally go to the dentist. weeee! And we can maybe afford husband’s law school without taking on loans. :)

Will Work For Tea

Sounds like the job offer came at the right time! Congrats!

Still waiting on a formal job offer from a job I applied to in April! (Was told I was the choice when she gets the go ahead to hire.)

Mercuryhime

Good luck! I hate how they make you wait sometimes!

Veronica

Congratulations on the job offer! That’s wonderful.

Mercuryhime

Thanks! I’ve been temping at that place for about half a year now and really a great place to be employed. :)

Bonnie

Congratulations! Wow…might be able to afford tea! That’s what I always think of first before food and bills! I’m a bad girl!

K S

Yeah! Congrats on being able to buy tea, uhmm I mean pay for schooling, and the dentist.

Mercuryhime

Thanks guys! I’m nervous but excited! And the occasional tea may be within my budget. :) I have enough to last years though!

tigress_al

Sweet. Congrats!

Uniquity

Delayed congratulations! Having a secured job is a wonderful thing!

Mercuryhime

Indeed it is! Thank you.

Still not super impressed with this one. It’s good, I took it to work in my go-cup today and I definitely enjoyed it. I just really want it to be better.

Sigh.

I was feeling the same about it, it wasn’t what I hoped for

jessiwrites

Yes, and every time I drink it, I keep expecting it to be better. I don’t know why. It just sounds so good!

Courtney

I felt the same way about this one. I tried it and tried it, but alas, it didn’t make the cut.

Faith

I prefer Creme Caramel Rooibos if I’m craving intense caramel in a tea.

jessiwrites

I haven’t tried that one yet, Faith. As a general rule, I dislike rooibos, so I’m not sure if that would work for me. Is the caramel intense enough that it’s not so… rooibos-y?

Shmiracles

Creme Caramel Rooibos is a favorite of mine too :) Mmmmmm

Sipdown! I’ve been super busy the past few weeks between working over the holidays (nurses don’t get vacation breaks) and trying to do the family thing. I’ve had a lot of new tea that I haven’t had time to review (notably Butiki and Verdant), so hopefully I can start to catch up now on Steepster.

Anyhoo, this tea has been challenging to say the least. I finally figured out that one of the big problems was that the salt all settled completely at the bottom of the bag. Of course I didn’t realize this until I neared the end of the supply and saw the big pile of white flakes sitting there. It improved dramatically with the addition of the salt. I believe ultimately that I prefer Della Terra’s Caramel Creme to David’s Salted Caramel, but I finished a 50g bag so it was hardly undrinkable. Bumping up the rating a bit to reflect my final thoughts.

You’re making me massively crave salted caramel ice cream now.

Nightshifter

Salted caramel gelato is to die for too! :)

Anna

Flavours like that are so rare in Rome – I like over-the-top salty, too.

Funny how your tastebuds change in such a short period of time. When I had this back at the beginning of March I was totally blown away. Loved it. Now that I have just finished off my 50g bag (SIPDOWN!!!) I’m pretty much over it. I’ve tried a variety of caramel teas and am pretty sure I have 2 awesome choices depending on the caramel I want. Caramel Vanilla Assam is the ultimate. So yummy, no additions necessary. Like a fancy butter caramel from a farmers market or something. My other favorite is Upton’s Caramel Black. Like the gooey caramel inside of a rolo candy. Not fancy at all, but delicious. I’d like to say I’m done and I won’t seek out more, but that’s a lie. If I see a caramel option at any site that i’m already ordering from, I’ll still do it. Just not this one. I’m over it.

Sil

hahaha welcome to the club! :)

whatshesaid

I’m going to drink my first cup of Caramel Vanilla Assam in like 30 min! Pumped!

Fuzzy_Peachkin

Everyone keep’s talking about Caramel Vanilla Asssam! I need to get me some!!!!

Aimee Popovacki

I liked this one when it first came out, but as far as it goes in the grand scheme of caramel black teas.. not my favorite..

Hummm. I’m not sure what to think of this tea! It was… nice. I have a pleasant buzz now and the flavour was mild/smooth. It did not however, taste like caramel or salt. Even with added sugar and a dash of salt! What I did get was a sweet malty tea with a base I can’t quite place.
Unfortunately, it had that nauseating aroma that is a red flag for my allergy issues, but I was strangely ok drinking it. No backlash yet!
There are artificial ingredients in here, a pet peeve of mine, so I doubt I’d buy more for myself, but hey it was pretty darn tasty considering!
Also, I do hope this is the right tea I am logging. It was from the travelling tea box and didn’t indicate where it was from. Mystery tea :)

TheTeaFairy

I too expected a lot more from this one, sniff :-(

Indigobloom

Yep, so sad too bad! it will be easily forgotten I think :(

Kittenna

I really liked this one!

Indigobloom

It’s not a bad tea. I only wish I got salt from it :)

Thank you Cedes for sending me some! I do love this cup! Its not as salty as I would like but I’m a total salt-a-holic!!
It is perfectly sweet, slightly creamy, and a nice black tea.
It could be more complex but it is what it is – a nice caramel flavored tea.
I just want MORE SALT!! LOL
Oh and I totally forgot to mentinon the coconut – never really had a chocolate coconut tea – its also very good! Great flavor balance here.

Lynne-tea

I agree, more salt in here would have been so fitting. I am constantly tempted to try adding a bit when I drink it… next time. next time.

Dry Leaf Nose: Very rich in caramel and toffee, with a hint of coconut and black tea.

Liquor: Rich, clear brown

Flavour: The caramel, toffee and black tea are richly prominent, with the coconut as a background. The salt is slightly noticeable, as it cuts the thickness of the flavour.

This sounds SO good! I’m thinking I may have to place an order soon. My husband was saying we should get more Luscious Watermelon, and this sounds like a nice addition to add to the order.
