Compared to Lupicia’s other flavoured black teas, this lacks a bit of oomph, even when it is steeped for a long time. The caramel is rather weak – I think I get more of that deliciously syrupy, but not too sugary, caramel taste from Cookie! There is a slight bitterness to English Caramel even with milk and sugar added – and that’s not a bad thing, but it would be better if that bitterness was combined with a stronger caramel flavour.
It’s a good brew for when you want a more subtle black tea. Not terrible, but I don’t think I’ll buy it again. Still looking for the perfect caramel!
