The dry leaf smells strongly of caramel, and there are little squares of toffee mixed in. Naturally I had to eat one right away. Wouldn’t you? It was hard, which was nice so it didn’t get stuck to the surrounding leaves. The flavor was ooey gooey caramel, buttery and with a hint of coffee.
Brewed the coffee flavor fades away. The caramel is balanced really well with the base. I think I like this better than Kusmi’s Caramel, which has been my favorite until now. There is a slight buttery flavor but nothing that is too forward. It’s really just a big caramel hug in a cup, and I can’t get enough of it. This is one of those hidden gems and you should definitely check it out.

Mom of two practically grown girls, extremely happily married to a man who is amused by my obsession with tea, and company owner who works from home. Life is good.

Likes/dislikes: I love black teas, especially strong/malty ones. I am ok with flavored teas if the base is strong. I like some whites. I really don’t like any tea that tastes “green” – if I wanted to drink something that tastes like green beans, I would cook some green beans. I am not big on green teas or genmaichas. I am learning to like puerhs.

If we are trading, I have a STRONG aversion to coconut, banana and licorice. I love citrus, vanilla and spice. Not a fan of florals.
