This has been one of the most challenging teas to try to get an awesome cup out of! Today after going over my past notes I decided to go for 195 for 2 minutes. There is no bitterness and it is quite nice, but it still doesn’t have some of that malty depth that the bitter cups had. Is it possible to get malt without the bitter? I love this tea, but I’m starting to wonder if it will ever be as wonderful as it smells and as I hope to taste.

On a brighter note, I found a super low price for it! Market Hall Foods sells it for $13.50 for a 3oz refill which is MUCH less than the $30 I shelled out for a tin!

Oh my word! I’ve been wanting to try this tea for a while now. Couldn’t figure out where to get it-but that is a cheap price. :O Think I’ll have to get some :O

Thanks for the heads up!

Smelled nice dry. Though I didn’t really care for this after it was brewed. It might’ve been just the way I brewed it, but this was a little too bitter for me. I could very faintly taste a bit of caramel after adding sugar, but I just couldn’t get past the bitterness. Ah well. Not bad to try from a swap.

This one is really tasty if you can figure out how to brew it…which thankfully I did….so much so that I got my parents to pick up 100g for me when they were in Paris heh

I got a tin of this last Christmas and saved it until my wedding in June. It’s almost gone now. I love it. It smells incredible – chocolate and caramel. It tastes incredible too. I drink it sweetened with milk because it’s already so indulgent, I just bask in the sumptuous sweetness. On that note, I’m really careful not to over-steep it. Anything over five minutes starts to bring out the tannins. I give it four minutes, 45 seconds on the clock to give me time to run over and remove the leaves before it hits five minutes.

caramel et vanilla flavors. it makes you give over 70scores at least..if you’re just normal person who loves sweets, sugar, caramel etc.. add a dash of sugar, it create illusion that you’re drinking real caramel drink..

Brewed in a big teapot.
The taste of the tea base is a little too strong, I’ll try to brew it a bit less next time.
The scent and flavor of chocolate is nice.

Lovely chocolate aroma with mellow caramel notes towards the end. Excellent tea for a cold rainy morning.

This is one of my favorite teas and it is hard for me to find where I am so I stock up when I can! I love the taste. If you do not like to drink your tea strong then you need to brew this tea on the lighter side as it can tend to be strong and overpowering for some tastes. For me I love it that way. It is a sweet tea and I love that I do not have to add anything to it.

How is this a tea? It tastes like candy and dessert at the same time, without the toothache or tummy-bloat. More caramel than chocolate, but you can smell both. I love it.
