I’ve often said that my three favorite “flavors” for tea are chocolate, bergamot and jasmine (not necessarily in that order). But if I were to list my four favorite flavors, I think caramel would be the fourth, only narrowly missing the mark as one of the top three. In fact, I think there is a part of me that probably prefers caramel flavored tea better than chocolate flavored tea because the sweetness of the caramel seems to go so perfectly with the flavor of tea (especially black tea) but the chocoholic in me won’t let caramel over-ride the chocolate. It’s an internal battle that I must contend with daily.
So, when I found this tea that promised me a creamy, caramel-y toffee flavor with a robust black tea, I couldn’t resist … I had to try it!
And this tea does deliver what it promised! This cup is rich and delicious, with lots of sweet, caramel-y flavor. The black tea is a good, solid black tea – perhaps not the most robust tea I’ve ever tasted, but, it provides a good background for the toffee flavor. I like that it is sweet and creamy without additions, however, if you wish to enhance the creaminess a bit, try adding a splash of milk or cream.
This is the first tea that I’ve tried from Kaleisia, and I’m quite pleased with what I’ve tasted. It makes a delectable dessert tea, and even a nice breakfast tea … for those of us who like to have our dessert first thing in the morning!
