I was a little hesitant to try this first thing in the morning. I like sweet things all day long but I just drank a cup of hot chocolate (a little morning ritual) and eating some sweetened oatmeal and I was worried that the tea would be too bitter compared to that. To counteract that, and also bring out the caramel creaminess of the tea, I added some milk and sugar.

I can definitely smell the caramel in the brewed liquid. It’s quite strong actually and nice, ‘darker’ if that’s the word, than a little cube of caramel so I think that’s the black tea.

This tastes like burnt caramel, especially the aftertaste. The black tea base is quite strong and I can definitely taste it although it is an eensy weensy bit bitter, although that might be because I steeped it on the high end of the steeping times provided on the package. Altogether I like this tea enough to drink the rest of it, I think, but I probably won’t be getting it again.

Single, vegetarian, asexual, 5 cats. Airplane Engineer. I drink most of my tea with a bit of sugar and all the ones with a black tea base with a little bit of milk too. I’m super sensitive to bitterness and spiciness so I tend to avoid those.

I am also a flavoured matcha latte fanatic.
