I’ve tried this a couple of times now. Sorry, forgot to log it ;)
Dry, this smells AMAZING! Super buttery and softly sweet, very similar to caramel popcorn.
I was pretty excited to try this. I don’t normally drink my black teas straight up, but I thought I would try it this way first and see if I liked it. I wasn’t thrilled with the first batch, which I think I oversteeped (4.5mins) as I found it quite bitter. That being said, my friend quite liked his cup, (his was steeped 4mins) and said it was only slightly bitter. He doesn’t normally drink tea, and he quite liked it, so go figure ;)

I made us both a second brew, at only 3minutes and it tasted somewhat better. I still wasn’t entirely sold on it though. Didn’t taste too much caramel and I was hoping it would be a bit sweeter.

Today, I decided to brew it for 3minutes, and add a few pieces of rock sugar to see if that would help bring out the caramel. Huge improvement. Only very slightly bitter,yet has a mildly sweet, caramel finish.

I’m enjoying it enough on it’s own now, so I think I’ll hold off on adding milk until another time and see how that tastes.

I drink a lot….of tea.

I’m still figuring out my rating system. The little smiley faces mess me up – I wish you could see the numbers underneath. Bear with me while I figure it all out and hopefully come up with a rating system besides “like” “don’t like” and “sometimes/sorta kinda like” ;)
