From Teaopia

This dessert-like tea is a mouthwatering blend of Ceylon Black Tea, caramel pieces, hard biscuit pieces and cream caramel flavour. The sweetness of the caramel is offset by the aromatic flavour of the Black Tea, making Caramelissimo a perfectly balanced sweet tea. This tea is a great substitute or accompaniment for dessert and can be enjoyed any time of day by tea lovers and sweet tooths alike.

Enjoying this today in a bone china teacup, while I watch Downton Abbey. Not exactly proper English tea, but I’m enjoying it as something different. ;) A small splash of milk and a few grains of white sugar complete it. Not quite as bitter with the addition of the milk and sugar, and the caramel is really apparent today. It’s an ok tea, and I don’t love it, which is good since Teaopia is gone, and I don’t think this one is on the super list that Teavana is keeping. I just wanted a different black dessert tea. I think that I love the smell of this tea more than the actual taste. I will use up my stock of it and see if it grows on me.

ETA: I’ve bumped my rating up a notch because with the milk and sugar, it is a much nicer tea experience. I also went and double checked and sure enough, Teavana is going to keep this tea. So if you love it, you can still get it :)

One of the last black teas I have yet to try at this shop… except the ginger one, no no I won’t go there, unless I am down with sniffles!
Anyhow, this was nice. The caramel was very subtle, but firmly present. It reminded me of teas that have caramel notes to them, only more pronounced and it was more natural than the other caramel teas I’ve tried.
In astringency and boldness it was rather light. I wish the boldness of the tea had been stronger, but that is just my preference.
Overall, I quite liked it! but it wasn’t far off from my Creme Brulee and that is a rooibos. The caffeine punch was certainly missing from this black tea!! Oh well, it is what it is.

The scent of this tea is lightly buttery and sweet. There is something in the background that reminds me of burnt bread. It’s a little bit sweet (not exactly a caramel taste) and ends with a wheat-like flavor. This reminds me a bit of how the milk tastes at the bottom of a bowl of cereal. It doesn’t have the nicest finish as it’s a bit drying in the mouth. Thank you to lizeepea for swapping a sample with me!

Yum. I am a sucker for sweet black teas (Love Tea #7 being my favourite). This one didn’t disappoint! I was looking for a sweet and mild black blend to add to my morning repertoire and I found it! The caramel comes through nicely but doesn’t overwhelm, its like a seductive tease at the end of the sip. I will definitely have to stock up on this once all of the Teaopia teas start going on clearance sale!

It smells very vanilla-y. Taste-wise, there’s not too much caramel. It’s just smooth.

That’s pretty much what I thought, although I do get a caramel scent, but the taste was lacking. With a shorter steep time it’s nice and smooth. The first time I did 4 mins and and the black tea got overpowering and bleh.

I was at Teaopia and wanted to buy their Bourbon Vanilla black tea but it was sold out since Teaopia is becoming Teavana soon. Anyways, I decided to get Caramelissimo since I like caramel and black tea. I brew this tea longer than recommended because I like tea strong. You can smell the sweet caramel flavour though I cant taste it that well. That’s probably because I brew it for so long. But that’s okay since I like the flavour of this tea with a splash of black tea. It has a rich creamy taste to it.

This black tea smells so good. I got it as a free gift with purchase of the tea master.

I love caramel, so I knew that I would love this tea. I added milk and sugar because it was a black tea, and that’s the only kind of tea that I would add milk to. It was amazing. It was like drinking liquid caramel. It was so delicious. I couldn’t believe how awesome it was. I know this will be a permanent in my collection. I was so happy to get to try it out. Anytime I have a sweet craving, I’m grabbing this tea.

This is a comfort tea. It is warm and cozy, and makes me want to cuddle up with a blanket and a good book or movie. The flavour isn’t all that complex…it is just a nice sweet tea. I add milk (sometimes Vanilla Silk coffee creamer) and a little sugar even though this is a sweet tea. I can’t say it tastes caramel-y, but it does taste sweet and dessert-like.

This was fine as a tea. Not mourning the loss like I do a couple other Teaopia blends, but it’s definitely a nice afternoon tea time tea. Not as indulgent as the name would suggest, perhaps.

It’s like a candy bar in a cup of tea. So tasty, and so comforting. Just the right amount of caramel to satisfy the sweet tooth. Highly recommend.
