An absolutely delightful caramel-flavored black tea. This tea has just the right amount of sweetness (it doesn’t taste sugary), and has a distinct caramel flavor, which doesn’t obscure the flavor of the tea itself. I have purchased this tea several times, and continue to keep it on my shopping list.
I’ve had a bad history with caramel-flavored teas in that I haven’t yet found one I liked. Sadly, this tea continues the trend.
When I opened the sample, I didn’t like the smell at all. It was a very strong, very artificial smell. At that alone my hopes for this tea dropped, because if I can’t abide the smell I’m probably not going to like the taste much either. And, well, I didn’t. The result was a mix of a strange sour flavor and that fake caramel taste. No amount of milk and sugar could ever make this okay. It went down the drain, and the rest of the sample went in the trash.
From now on I’m sticking to candy when I want caramel flavor. Normally I like Upton’s teas, but I’m more than a little disappointed in this one.
