Almost like drinking Caramilk, although never as sweet and cloying. My favourite thing about this one is the hot caramel smell that attaches itself to the cup. I’ve found it’s a good tea to smother most dessert cravings.
I tried adding soy milk to it a couple days back and that completely diluted everything. Maybe a longer steep time would’ve helped, but I don’t feel like playing around anymore when I know I’ve got a good thing going already.
I love the assam base for this blend; I may actually like the assam more on it’s own than here. It’s going on my “must haves” list for fall, though. This tea, a warm fireplace, a textbook, and a chilly night sounds pretty fine to me.
Edit: I’m finally starting to like this tea in it’s own right and not just for its assam base. Being generous with the two teaspoon serving, and stirring after steeping, takes this tea up a notch for me. I normally hate adding sugar to my tea but this is one of the few exceptions where I actually don’t mind.
