Such an interesting tea! I brewed it on the strong side, and added half and half and sugar, and thought it a really good-tasting tea. Good caramel aroma, tiny hints of salt that brought out the sweetness of the caramel. Really delicious!

There’s no better treat than a salted caramel. You won’t find this in your history books, but we’ve heard that Romeo seduced Juliet with a salt-sprinkled toffee. Rich, buttery and sweet with a kiss of salt – who can resist? So it goes without saying that it makes for a seriously delicious tea. This is a rich black tea blend, strewn with pieces of English toffee, coconut, caramel and a touch of French sea salt. It’s guaranteed to seduce your taste buds.
Ingredients: Black tea, coconut, caramel bits, English toffee bits, sea salt, natural and artificial flavouring*.

Picked up the other new tea to try as well – why not, right?
This one has a bit of an off-putting smell dry – I’m not sure what it is, but I expected the caramel/toffee would come out more when it was steeped.
The steeped flavours were definitely stronger and more pleasant than the dry smell – that odd off-putting smell has disappeared. The hint of salt is faintly there, but I think it mostly rounds out and balances the black tea. The caramel/toffee and smoothness kind of reminds me of a werthers candy – without being so cloyingly sweet!
It’s a good rich black tea. But that’s all it is. I don’t get any notes of coconut, toffee, maybe I get a weeeeeee bit of caramel since it does taste rich and sweet. That’s not to say it’s not a good tea or one that I won’t repurchase because most likely I’ll pick up a 15 g bag once in a while when I feel it or finish the 15 g I have. But it’s just a sweet black tea to me.
Last of the blacks I have recently tried! I liked this, I didn’t love it as much as Sugar & Spice, Glitter & Gold, or Pumpkin Chai. Additionally, it was slightly overshadowed by my friend’s gift of Cocoa Canela… In defense of the tea, it was actually quite good. There were definite caramel undertones but it wasn’t too caramelly sweet. It was a really good no nonsense black. I think I will definitely revisit it, but there are other blacks I liked a lot better.
Got this as a latte-to-go the other day when I was asking one of the girls at my local DT for something they’d recommend as a latte. After listing off a few teas I’d tried and loved, she suggested Salted Caramel. Instantly it sounded off in my head like a fall tea, and I winced inwardly, remembering the Pumpkin Chai experiments (still ongoing I’m afraid, but I’m determined to like it somehow!). But caramel is delicious and since it’s quite a bit healthier than a caramel frappuchino I took the leap of faith.
This is going right in my cupboard when the leaves turn. Literally made for hot foamy caramelly lattes. Ugh. Its one of those comforting desserty teas you want when its a little chilly outside, but not quite winter yet. Not too sweet, not too rich, not too artificially flavoured. Yes. I think I’ve found my fall tea.
I got this is as a free sample from David’s Tea from a recent order. Dry, it looks nice and smells fantastic. Upon brewing, it smells carmelish, but there is definitely something off in the aroma. A bit like artificial chocolate which I really dislike. There’s also an unpleasant oil slick on the surface. But, it tastes quite good. The salted carmel and toffee translates well to the cup and plays well with the tea. That being said, I don’t think it earns a place in my (crowded) pantry. I just can’t get over the aroma.
Let me preface by saying that I’ve been reeeaaaalllyyy hesitant to actually buy some of this, since I already have creme caramel rooibos and, although I do like it, it isn’t one of my absolute favourite teas (I also have a fairly expansive collection and always feel just a tad guilty whenever I buy a new one).
But wow! I’m so glad that I bought this one. It really does taste like salted caramel. It’s sweet and smooth with just a little bit of the salty taste noticeable at the end. And all without overpowering the black tea flavour!
I always make my first cup of any new tea without milk or sweetener, but this is one I think I’ll continue drinking on its own. MAYBE I’ll try it as a latte, but certainly not with the vanilla almond milk I use for most of them. It really doesn’t need any other flavours to make it amazing.
I really have to say that this tea is one of my all time favourites. You can drink it straight, or add milk and sugar – it really tastes amazing either way. This tea was one of my first purchased teas and definitely my fall/winter staple. The scent is just heavenly, to the point where my cousin smelt it and went on the internet to search up a perfume that smelt like it! It’s well worth it and I know for a fact that when fall is nearby, or they foolishly decide to discontinue this tea, I’ll be sure to buy a full tin or two of it.
Thank you elizabeth229 for the trade! I’ve been wanting to try Salted Caramel for a while, so I was excited when I finally received this in the mail. The smell was sweet when I opened the package, but nothing special. The taste is much better than the scent of the dry leaves. The black base is pretty mellow and the caramel really stands out. I am missing the salt though. I think if there was a touch more salt in this tea, it would be even better. I finished the cup pretty quickly though, so that is good thing. I think this one is a keeper!
