I started my day with this blend – hot and straight. It’s pleasant but not something I’d repurchase. There’s something happening with the aftertaste that doesn’t sit well on my taste buds. It’s definitely a dessert tea. The base is nice, and there’s decent caramel flavor. I’m not getting much in the way of creme brûlée. It’s smooth and rich, but it’s not as decadent as I was expecting given the name. It’d probably make a nice latte.
