Sweet indulgence

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*.

Allergens: soy, coconut, dairy, nuts

I liked this, quite a lot even, but I don’t think I’m really getting salted caramel or salt-sprinkled toffee from it. I do get burnt sugar from time to time, so that’s pretty close and quite welcome.

It’s definitely a sweet and creamy cup. Then there’s a slight coconut note winding through the whole thing.

At least this isn’t the horrible spiced abomination that Teavana made. I would absolutely drink this again, but it’s not quite what I’m looking for in a caramel or a toffee tea.

Thanks NayLynn!

So I have a love affair with salt. I always have. I put it on everything. This year my Easter basket from my Mom had all kinds of gourmet salts in it, yum! Even black lava salt from Hawaii, I was so excited! I love chocolate with sea salt, and also caramel with sea salt. This tea was recommended after my not-so-great experience with Cococaramel Sea Salt from Teavana, so I am excited to try it.

The dry leaves smell like sweet caramel with an odd hint of vinegar, and the tea liquor is the same. It’s not terrible, like the vinegary smell in Butterscotch from Angelina’s Teas, but I definitely noticed it. Thankfully there is none of that sour taste in the tea. There is a malty and buttery flavor with a light, rich caramel aftertaste. I’m definitely tasting the caramel, but not so much the salt. Maybe a little bit in the aftertaste, or that may be because I want to be able to taste the salt so bad! Overall, this is a nice tea, even without the salt. I will just have to keep looking for my perfect sweet/salty tea. Thank you, akgrowngirl for this tea! :)

-Dry blend has medium black tea leaves and twigs with small pieces of candy and coconut.
-Dry leaves smell like sweet caramel with a little hint of vinegar. Tea liquor aroma is of sweet caramel and vinegar.
-Tea liquor is a clear dark brown color.
-Malty and buttery flavor and finish. Light rich caramel aftertaste.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Good tea. A sweet caramel cup. Little salt noticeable.

I just made a cup of this and I’m getting ready to take my first sip.

Josie Jade

:) It’s a good cup to start the day with!


As someone with 9 (9!!) different kinds of salt on her kitchen counter, I understand.

Josie Jade

Haha, glad I’m not the only salt lover, Anyanka. My mom got the salts for me from San Francisco Salt Company, I’m pretty impressed so far!

I had this with milk tonight and it was delicious. Milky goodness with caramel and coconut notes. Will have to restock this sometime.

Have I had this before? It already has a rating so I must have. Which is good because I can’t tell how accurate this tasting note is going to be.

Let me preface this whole thing that my Breville desperately needs to be cleaned, as I just learned by making this tea, and I just bought some of those organic cleaning tablets on Amazon that should arrive in a couple of days (yay free two-day shipping!). Because…I had a bit of the unsweetened tea and it tasted vaguely of mold. So there’s that.

If I ignore that, it’s a very tasty tea. But yeah. Mold. I’m dumping the rest now that I’ve had a taste.

Thanks to Faith for including this one in a recent swap. I don’t drink a ton of DavidsTeas, but occasionally there is a flavor I get curious about. I love salted caramels, so this was definitely one of them, though I don’t know what coconut is doing in there. Salted Coconut Caramel?

I smell the coconut in the steeped tea, and it smells a bit like some of the chocolate-coconut blends I’ve had, though only with a faint chocolate and with more of a caramelly background, which makes sense.

Well this is pretty tasty overall. Caramelly, coconutty, with a hint of savory to it, which must be due to the salt. Ooh I just got a sip with a lot of burnt-sugar caramel to it, which was delightful. I have also come to realize that although I love coconut in general, I often am not the biggest fan of it in black tea blends (though I often love it in whites or greens). Dunno why. This does have a bit more coconut in it than I would prefer. Why is coconut necessary in a caramel tea? It’s just weird to me. Still, this is pretty tasty despite it, and I am glad I got a chance to try it.

I didn’t even realize this had coconut in it till I read your review. LOL! Now I wonder how I missed it! :P

Well, how to say that…it is a nice hot flavoured cup of water ?
It’s caramelly, not salty and I get coconut (which is nice as it is in the ingredient’s list !)
I am just wondering why DT added coconut or why did they not call the tea coconut salted caramel? When a brand decides to go for a descriptive name, why not telling exactly what it is ? In this case something like coconut salted caramel Tea-free !
It is very round and mellow – my daughter adores it- and I think I will leave the rest of the cup to her.
She asks me : why don’t you like it ?
My aswer is : because it’s not tea…sorry I cannot taste the TEA once and again with this brand.
Thank you TheTeaFairy for sharing even if I’m so sorry for not being able to appreciate the famous Canadian brand.
I’m sure I’ll find one I really like in the big swap you sent me.

I think I have a sample of this in my cupboard too! But don’t think I am eager to try this… agree with you that DAVIDsTEAs generally do not taste like tea… and in my opinion adding coconut to a caramel tea just ruins it! :(


Aww, DT isn’t for everything. Even I find they’re very hit or miss.


I’ll continue exploring, as TheTeaFairy sent me many samples of DT but I am pretty sure I can find one I like


Don’t feel bad Ysaurella, you have much better chances of finding something you like in the other brands I’ve sent! What you are describing is exactly the reason why I fell «out of love» from Davidstea. I hardly ever have their teas anymore, but I thought I’d give you a chance to try them and help you stop wondering what the fuss is all about since you are so far away from them! On the other hand, I’m glad your daughter likes them :-) I should be the one feeling bad for enjoying the French teas you have sent me while you are still trying to find one you like from mine :-(

How did I forget to review this? I did a sipdown of it last week just to say I did, get rid of it and log it. Forgot.

So when I smell the dry leaves I’m all like “blech.” I only brewed it because there was barely enough left for one cup, not worth swapping, and I didn’t want to chuck it out. So I figured what the hey.

I was actually surprised it tasted better than it smelled, to me.

I have to give you a weird comparison here, though I’m not sure if you’re going to get it or not. It makes perfect sense to me though.

You know how there are basically two obviously different types of BBQ flavored chips? I mean the flavoring, not the brand. There’s the “mesquite” type, like the (Lays black bag) and the less spicy ones, my fave, like the Humpty Dumpty brand or the Lays (orange bag I think). I don’t like the mesquite ones. I like the orangey ones.

Likewise for caramel, there’s the creamy, buttery kind, and the burnt toffee sort. I like the creamy ones.

I find this tea is more the burnt toffee sort of caramel. If it were potato chips it would be Mesquite BBQ.

The smell is worse than the taste though. And it’s definitely not overly salty, but I’m cool with that because I just want a good black caramel tea! Kusmi isn’t quite flavorful enough for what I’m searching for, and it’s not creamy enough (though definitely good!) I’m still searching.

I am hoping to find a creamy NON rooibos caramel tea. Della Terra has one but it was out of stock when I placed my last order.

Anyway, this wasn’t as off putting as I remember but it’s not like those little Kraft caramel candy squares, and that’s what I’m searching for.


yeah…this is not my favourite either though i’ve had a couple of decent caramel teas


I’m on the same hunt. I’m hoping Butiki’s upcoming Caramel Vanilla will be the one!

Josie Jade

I thought this one had a more burnt caramel taste, too!

Josie Jade

And I got a little vinegar from both the dry leaf and a little in the taste. Did anyone else or am I just crazy?!


hmmm i can’t recall off the top of my head heh


I like the burnt toffee/caramel flavour :) And yeah, that’s definitely what’s in here. I didn’t get any vinegar from the leaf or taste, but I have another bit to try again sometime soon.

ohfancythat (whatshesaid)

I didn’t get any vinegar but while I don’t hate this it’s not quite what I was hoping it would be!

I actually ended up enjoying this more than when I originally bought it. It seems with time, the flavours have had a chance to mellow out a bit and blend together to produce a smoother taste. It also seems to taste less artificial than it did back in October. Go figure!

If this comes back in the fall/winter, I will likely purchase it again for egg nog lattes! Oh man, I don’t dare even think about those yet ;)

Evol Ving Ness

I really like this one when I am in the mood for it.

So much missing milk. I hate to even think what my practitioner would say about eggnog. :)


I don’t drink a huge amount of milk but I would sure miss it if I couldn’t have it. I do really enjoy almond milk though (but not just by itself).

Evol Ving Ness

Hmm, almond milk. I haven’t tried it with tea yet. I will look into it. As I have been drinking mostly green, white, and oolong lately, I’ve just been drinking tea straight up which makes the absence of milk in my life easier.


I like my teas best straight but I like an almond milk latte from time to time especially with rooibos/honeybush. Try it out sometime!


Hmm, I should try this again sometime. This + eggnog sounds like a dream!

Evol Ving Ness

Thank you for the tip. I will.

Moderately strong on the caramel, very on the light side with the salt but its there. Idk. I guess its there on the end which is where its supposed to be and I just am not caring for it. I think I’d like it more if the caramel was stronger. I was hoping for more but its just not there for me. Sample was frommmm.. i can’t remember? Someone awesome!

Sip down day #2/tea #2

This is my second attempt with salted caramel. The first time was a failure.
The dry notes and steeped ones still smell of stinky, gross artificial honey.
I think I may be the only one who doesnt like this tea.

Second go around seems like a bust as well. First time too salty from my added salt… this time no salt. I al getting the slightest hint of caramel. However for the most part it tastes like hot water.
So far sip down is working and I have eliminated a few teas.
