Craving that candy bar…why not try a calorie free alternative? Our Chocolate Caramel Turtle tea is it! A sinfully delicious combination for your brewing pleasure.
This one had me at chocolate. But promises of caramel too? My mouth is watering just thinking about it. I could smell the chocolate as soon as I opened the pouch, which only added to the drool factor.
The brewed tea has an interesting fragrance as well, not as strong a chocolate scent as with the dry leaf, but more like a combination of chocolate, nuts, earthy black tea, and sweet caramel. The nutty aroma is the strongest of the bunch.
Mmmm! This tastes so good. Nutty and chocolate-y, but not so much that it overwhelms the caramel and black tea. The black tea base is fairly neutral and mild here, but it is not so discreet that it is completely lost. Each flavor is represented in the sip, although some flavors are stronger than others.
A very enjoyable cup – this chocoholic approves!
