From Malt-Tea.com

Crystal malts are high-nitrogen malts that are wetted and roasted in a rotating drum before kilning. They produce strongly sweet toffee-like flavors. Crystal malts are available in a range of colors, with darker-colored crystal malts; that is, those kilned at higher temperatures, producing stronger, more caramel-like overtones. Those kilned at lower temperatures are slightly sweeter with more tamed caramel notes. The Crystal ranges are 20,40,60,90 and 120. These numbers represent their lovibond (L) scale. The lower numbers are lighter/sweeter and the higher numbers are darker/more carmelized.

Crystal 120 is the most carmelized of all the Crystal Malts. It shows a deep red color and produces caramel, nutty and toffee like flavors.

Before I get into how this tea tasted, I added this as a new entry even though there’s a generic Crystal Malt one—they come in 3 different levels, so I thought it’d be easier to have an entry for each one. This is 120, apparently the maltiest of all.

Like the barley/corn I cold brewed this for about an hour. It brewed to a lighter color than the barley/corn teabag, but I could tell by the smell that it was done already. I’ve mentioned this, but I LOVE that these brew up into strong iced tea so quickly AND they resteep! It’s so convenient.

This is unlike any tea I’ve ever tasted. Well, it’s a tisane I suppose, but you know what I mean! It is so savory, like roasted corn and wheat. The smell reminds me of fresh baked croissants! It’s also very nutty and rich. However, while it’s really savory it’s also surprisingly sweet. The malt taste is really strong, like a malted milk ball without the chocolate, and there are caramel/honey notes as well. It’s so intriguing, I just can’t stop sipping it!

they dont’t ship to canada as near as I can figure out.

You could probably email them to ask about Canadian shipping, the guy who runs the site is really helpful!
