I was surprised to see little caramel squares and jasmine flowers in this blend. Well, you might think, “duh.. it’s caramel & jasmine!” but I was expecting more of a plain blend without the chunky flowers and caramel… nice! The scent of this tea is lovely — sweet jasmine and buttery caramel.
Sipping… oh, I like this! It’s heavy on the jasmine, but not so much that it becomes stinky or gives me a headache. The caramel follows closely behind and offers a lingering sort of sweetness. I also get a little bit of something like vanilla ice cream in the finish. Yum! The base is interesting… more green than black for me. Not astringent, but not terribly smooth either… something in between. Quite a nice and sweet tea. A good choice for when you can’t decide between flowers or dessert!
