While madly digging through my samples yesterday for Black Jasmine Cream, I stumbled upon a packet of this from my box from LiberTEAS from ages ago! It was hiding down at the bottom, sneaky but I’m going to drink you no matter where you hide.
I have tried quite a few caramel and toffee teas, so many that they kind of seem to blend together. And they almost always have a black base! One of those CTC, who knows what kind of black it is bases that pretty much just tastes like “tea.” Strong tea, but I’m not picking up any specific notes other than “oh yeah, this is definitely tea!”
The caramel is quite strong, as you’d expect since there are little toffee chips in here. But it’s kind of flat: not toasty or particularly rich. You know what this reminds me of? Those butter cookies in the individual packs they sell in cafeterias. Tasty, curbs your sugar craving, but you’d never sit around craving a cookie and think of that specific one.
