I was excited when Liber-Teas sent me this sample. I love caramel, though I usually think of it paired with coffee… so I was quite curious about what type of tea it would make.
I brewed it, just as I would any black tea, added some nonfat half and half, but no sweetener. I took a sip… and was so pleasantly surprised! It had a lovely black tea flavor. But the undertone was definitely a slightly sweet, burnt sugar/caramel aftertaste. The nonfat half and half added a great creaminess without high calories. And this tea, though not extremely sweet, completely satisfied my afternoon snack urge!
Liber-Teas describes Sweet Caramel O’ Mine like this:
High Grown Ceylon and Premium Assams are blended and then flavored with caramel, sprinkled with little caramel bits (these are very hard bits, they only a small portion of the bits melt into the tea when submerged in hot water) and Edible Flower Petals.
I strive to make my teas a complete sensory experience: visually attractive, a delight to smell, and the most delicious tea ever introduced to your palate.
This is the perfect afternoon tea for me. High quality tea, my favorite caramel flavor, low in calories and very satisfying!
