From Twinings

Sweet but somehow salty. Fresh tasting, yet somehow rich and warming. This tea is simply full of contradictions – accompanied by the most irresistibly indulgent notes of caramel. If you love the idea of green tea, but also like the sweeter side of life, this may be the blend for you.

A nutty, toasty green tea with notes of bok choy, seaweed, and mulberry leaf.

The salt and caramel are really well done. I don’t know if this is the base I would use (too vegetal), but it does make a nice cup.

On Thursday I made my way to London’s Twinings shop, where you can buy individual teabags of a bunch of their blends. Though they don’t have quite as much variety as I might’ve liked, it’s nonetheless a great opportunity to try new varieties—especially those you might be on the fence about, like I was about this one.

This tea sounded so weird, but I know it and some of the other Indulgence blends have gotten rave reviews so I thought I might as well sample them all. And it is weird, a little, but it’s good. The caramel flavor is pretty true to life, and it gives the tea a rich, buttery mouthfeel. It makes for an unusual flavor combination with the green base, but not a bad one. It’s a very enjoyable blend, on the whole. I’m not sure it’s a restock for me, but I certainly wouldn’t object to drinking it again.

This is the last of the Twinings Indulgence blends I picked up pretty much on a whim. I’d pretty much ruled out Twinings green blends a long time back, but the idea behind these, and favourable things friends had said about them, made me reconsider. I’m glad I did, because these are pretty amazing. I gave this bag 2 minutes in water cooled to around 175 degrees.

Straight off, Salted Caramel reminds me a lot of the Fudge Melts blend I tried last week (I think…), only with less vanilla. I wasn’t all that keen on Fudge Melts – it sounded great, but it was kind of cloying and over-sweet in a sickly sort of way. Salted Caramel, fortunately, isn’t like that. The initial taste is sweet, rich, soft caramel, but there’s a distinctive saltiness that keeps the sweetness at a manageable level. My head tells me I’d prefer this as a black tea, but I can’t actually taste the green tea at all so I think that’s just my own bias towards black tea rather than a substantial observation.

On the whole, I’ve been pretty impressed with how flavour accurate these blends are, and there are a few that I’d happily drink again (and maybe actively seek out once my cupboard is under control again). Salted Caramel is no exception, so if you’re looking for an accessible, strongly-flavoured caramel dessert tea this would be a good place to start. Yum!

I just picked up sample teabags of all the Indulgence blends at the Twinings shop in London today—I thought they sounded a little odd at first, but after all these rave reviews I can’t wait to try them.

I am not a fan of flavored green teas. This tea sounded just too good to pass up. It is very delicious but would be better as a black tea.

Not bad. Toasty, a bit caramel, a bit salt. But the green tea is just so… green. I’d infinitely prefer this as a black tea.

Thanks for sharing, MissB!

I’m with you on that, most of the time, I think “why couldn’t this be a black tea?”…. Green…bleh. Unless it’s Jasmine

OMGsrsly

I find it frustrating to not like green teas, because there are so many neat flavours that end up being green! I guess it does prevent me from buying a lot, though. :)

tigress_al

Ha I guess you’re right and this means I can’t buy ALL THE TEA!

I prefer black teas as well. Have you tried Bigelow’s Salted Caramel? I quite like that one.

OMGsrsly

Bigelow doesn’t seem to be available here anymore.

Fjellrev

And the very few Bigelow teas I have seen here in Canada have only been like EG and/or some breakfast blend.

OMGsrsly

I used to get a really nice pomegranate green… not seaweedy, just nice and flavourful and sweet. But no longer.

This has a thick mouthfeel that I am finding rather bothersome. It’s somewhere between a liquid and a gel and I’m not sure how that’s happening but it is making this seem like a salted caramel jello. That’s not a good combination so I guess I am glad this is done.

woot! tea from MissB i wasn’t quite sure what to expect with this one being as it’s a green tea…but this is great. It really is a deliciously yummy caramel tea – i don’t get much of the green tea base, other than the fact that it’s lighter than a black caramel tea in terms of the depth? of the tea…but i’m ok with that. These are great bagged teas and give me much hope for the toffee bags that were also in the care package missb sent over! :)

OMGsrsly

That sounds so neat! Salted caramel GREEN?

Sil

i know, right!? soo many tea bags…so many teas… must have them ALL…. there are only a couple of some of them ie. the two rose garden ones i set aside for SK are the only two there… One of the perks of getting the box means i get to drink all the teas i want! mwahahahahah (though to be fair, if there are things i KNOW i won’t like, i try not to drink them even for trials sake if i know someone else would love them….)

OMGsrsly

You’re too sweet. ;) Have fun with it! Go wild. Roll in the teas (carefully, don’t want to bust them up too much)!
