I steeped it at 4 and 7 minutes and tried it and it was weak, then I remembered some notes on here saying to steep it for 10 minutes. So I tried it and wow, that is good.
It is sweet, smooth, creamy caramel.
I would give it a 100 rating but it is so darn expensive.
I ate the mulberries after steeping and they were yummy.
I don’t think I could get a 2nd steep out of this though.
Definitely a re-buy though.

I haven’t tried this one, is the caramel taste overpowering?

I wouldn’t say it is overpowering, it really is quite sweet though.

You can for sure get a second steep out of it! Let the tea sit for 11 or 12 minutes the second time, with a little hotter water than the first go around, and it’s amazing!

thanks for the info Lynne-tea, and I read your tasting note and will definitely try a second steep next time around!

Bio

Hello,
I am a nurse. I have numerous hobbies: reading, crocheting, crafting, card making, scrapbooking, photography, shopping, and of course drinking TEA!

I started drinking loose leaf tea in Dec. 2010 when I went into a DavidsTea for the first time and have been hooked ever since! My favourite is probably white tea, but I also love black and oolong. I also like a nice relaxing rooibos or herbal in the evening. On Sundays, I like to treat myself and make a tea latte.

My favourite flavours are nutty, vanilla, chocolate, jasmine, tropical, fruity, earl grey.
My dislikes are lavender, rose, hibiscus, banana, and straight green or overly vegetal teas.

I am admittedly fairly generous in my rating scale. Most of my teas I rate at 90 and above, and would re-stock these teas.
Anything under 90 I probably wouldn’t re-stock unless I found a great price.
