I got 2 ounces of this tea in one of those heavily discounted teavana gift sets (Thanks, super sale!). I’d never heard of this one before, but comments led me to believe that this tea might be better than Slimful Chocolate Decadence, my favorite Teavana tea of all time, I was very excited.
The tea smells amazing when you open the container. Just so delectable. It really does smell like a sea salt caramel chcoolate bar tastes. I gave the tea its full five minutes to brew, but the color was surprisingly light to me. Nevertheless I gave it ago.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s good, but better than Slimful Chocolate Decadence? Nah. It is very creamy with great caramel notes, but the sea salt aspect is missing to me. I also didn’t taste the chocolate as much as I expected to. So to me, it’s a bit one note.
I went to look up more information about the tea on Teavana’s website, but it didn’t come up. I guess they are discontinuing this one. That’s too bad – I’d like to experiment with it, I think it’s quite tasty. I’ll just have to get my sea salt caramel fix the traditional way – with a chocolate bar.
