Bumping up a few points because I can’t stop thinking of my next cup. I will have to buy this next time I am at my local shop.

So, I was salivating over the notes for this tea, and Stephanie, awesome as she is, sent it as a bonus sample in our swap! Thanks, Stephanie!

I love caramel, and I love black tea, and I haven’t really found a caramel black tea that I love. I thought this one would be it, but unfortunately I don’t think I’m fond of the black base. I only steeped it for 3 minutes, and it’s a bit bitter. There is a touch of caramel coming through, but it’s overpowered by the base. Maybe I should have steeped it for a shorter time, but really, if it’s gonna be that finicky, I don’t want it. Alas, this one’s not for me, but I’m very grateful that I was able to try it first before buying a bunch (which I almost did!) That could have been a major bummer, from which my tea friend saved me! Yay for tea friends!

Marzipan

The TG original package calls for a 2 minute steep.

Tealizzy

Poo! Guess I messed it up then. Oh well.

Marzipan

I can send you more if you want to try it. All of the blacks I bought from them say 2 minutes. It surprised me but works well.

Tealizzy

Thanks for the offer, Marzipan…how about hold that thought for a future swap, if you’re game. ;)

Stephanie

What I sent you was the rest of my sample from Marzipan :) She has the Caramel hookups!

Thanks for the sample Marzipan!

This is a very true to caramel favor. It is very good! I think it would be my fave caramel black tea if not for Butiki’s caramel vanilla Assam being superior.

Wow, this is really doing it for me. We have been back from Chicago for what, two weeks? My husband keeps asking if I have tried the caramel tea that smelled so good. Today I dug it out and it is SO good!

The dry leaf smells a little like coffee, and I don’t like coffee, but brewed it’s just yummy creamy caramel. I even added a little cream and all I can think about is the next cup.

In other news, it bothers me a lot when someone says they are an English teacher and then has a mass of multiple punctuation all over their post. Sigh.

Marzipan

My grammar snob is showing. :/

Dr Jim

I was horrified when my son’s 1st grade teacher used “youse” as the plural form of you.

Marzipan

I sort of wish that I could just let it go. But I grew up in the south and spent my life fighting stereotypes, so I have always made my daughters use good grammar and spelling to fight that. I know that being a pedant about it can be annoying, but I think if you throw “I am an English teacher” into your first post, you are sort of asking for it.

MzPriss

Everyone knows the plural of “you” is “all y’all”

TheTeaFairy

MzPriss, that comment really cracked me up!

I decided to brew up all four of my black caramel tea samples at once to do a comparison.

Caramel by TeaG
Caramel by Kusmi
Caramel Toffee by Dammann Freres
And Creme Caramel by Upton.

I did a terrible job comparing them, though.

I have a really hard time pinpointing specific notes in tea beyond a very basic level of distinction.

So, beyond noting that they all tasted like caramel in their own specific way, here’s all I got:

Kusmi’s brewed up the blackest and it seemed to have a slight cardboardy note to me.

Tea G’s was a medium amber color, had a thick mouthfeel and was either my favorite or second favorite.

Upton’s was very light when brewed. It was somewhat similar to the DF tea but not as flavorful.

DF’s was pretty light also, and had sort of a fruity note in the background.

I think I may have liked that one best, with that floral note!

But Tea G’s was a close second, if not a tie.
So, this achieved….something. I guess.

For the sake of simplicity and safety, I used 96 degrees and 4 min for all.

Cameron B.

Yum, caramel! I am really anxious to try more Dammann Freres after loving their Nosy Bey. :D

Courtney

I love comparisons. I am similar with the tastes, I can some, but not as many as other people. Whenever I know I don’t really need two of a similar tea I find it helpful to compare.

Memily

Yesssssssssssssss comparisons, so great.

sooo much to do today. Just catching up on a few backlogs from yesterday. this was another one that i had – i blended this with the cream from tea G to have a caramel cream. i have to say, i am really digging the teas from tea G. i don’t know that i ever want 100g so i may need to only shop there when i’m in chicago…or do split orders with people but their flavours are tasty and i enjoy the base that they use.

whatshesaid

Yes, curse you for putting this one on my wishlist!! ;)

Sil

haha if i ever do an order via my tea mule i’ll let you know. or if we end up in chicago again – i may have to go for work this summer

whatshesaid

That would be sweeeeet :)

Terri HarpLady

I need to try to take a trip to Chicago to visit the harp factory & various tea places. Maybe in the fall.

Sil

time it with meeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Terri HarpLady

THAT would be cool! Let me know next time you’re going, & I’ll try to go then too…if I can!
