If you have a sweet tooth, then have we got the tea for you. The moment you open the pouch of our Butterscotch tea, you are enveloped in the aromas of a confectionery shop. Sweet, buttery and whimsical flavors are infused into this desert tea and rounded off with hints of apple, cocoa nibs and marigold. A delightful way to satisfy those sweet cravings.

      wow! add a little milk and sugar and it tastes just like one of those old school butterscotch candies. This tea is so good.

      This is way better than the caramel tea, which is honestly kind of overly-bitter and gross. Even my Mom, who doesn't like tea, comments on how good this smells when I make it.

      This is one of the very best single-flavor teas I have had from Adagio -- in fact, from any company! It's wonderful on its own. It has a great caramelly flavor that is way more robust than the caramel-flavored tea. I am sure it will be excellent in blends as well. Great hot or cold!

      This is a sweet and buttery tea, even without sugar! I frequently get asked, "What IS that? It smells incredible!" They are surprised when I tell them it's a black tea. It's a great way to wake up and get caffeinated.

      Even my non-tea-loving husband and daughter really enjoyed this. It tastes like warm butterscotch pudding with a touch of sugar added.

      This is an amazing sweet flavored tea without being too sweet. It has a rich deep flavor with hints of brown sugar.

    • 

      Definitely smells like butterscotch, but doesn't quite taste like it. Maybe I'm not using the right sweeteners to bring out the flavor. Still good, but not as good as I wanted it to be.

    • 

      I really liked this! It's sugary sweet and is especially good with cream and sugar.

      Initial scent is a wave of butterscotch. I was afraid it would be overwhelming. Thankfully it mellowed out in brewing, making a lovely, mild cuppa. Would make a fantastic latte.

      This is one of the best smelling flavored teas ever. If only the flavor matched the scent, but they never do. Still one of my favorites though.

      I loved the smell--it's exactly like the pastry!--but I didn't actually much enjoy drinking this tea. It was very sweet smelling, but I didn't find it tasted much like the cookie.

      I'm sorry to say I didn't enjoy this one. I added some sweetener and almond milk thinking it would perk it up but it didn't happen. I was disappointed with this one. :(

    • 

      Has a very sweet aroma. Flavor wise it’s very sweet and good with some creamer. Almost too sweet for me though.

    • 

      This tea smells and tastes very strongly of butterscotch. I add just a bit of sugar. I drank it without milk, but I think it would probably taste good with milk or cream added.

      Good tea. Strong flavor. At first it seemed to have a hint of scotch but then I realized that it's all herbal. Interesting tea

    • 

      So good! I love the sweet, almost candy like flavor of this. It's a perfect dessert tea.

      This tea is very smooth with milk and sugar. It has such a lovely fall flavor.

      Such a great dessert tea! Very sweet, goes well with almost anything. I highly recommend this

      It smells like butterscotch but smell and taste dissipates as soon as the water hits the tea

    • 

      This tea is not for me. I can imagine people who like black tea with milk and sugar enjoying it or as a dessert, but its just a bit too intense for my taste

    • 

      One of my absolute favorites. I love it. I mix in some Tiger Eye every now and then or some cream tea. Very good.

    • 

      The dry leaves smell like candy, but the brewed tea is really astringent. It's fine with sugar or milk added, but it's hard to drink on its own

    • 

      I think this has a really nice flavor. Not my absolute favorite - I think the Chestnut still beats this, in my opinion. But still a nice tea.

    • 

      Very good and natural butterscotch flavor with a light natural sweetness that satisfies my creamy butterscotch candy cravings!

      This is delicious tea. It tastes just like butterscotch and I am thrilled that I no longer have to spend a lot of money at a local tea shop. I can make it right at home!!!

      The aroma is amazing. The flavor is very nice. I like this as a desert tea.

    • 

      A toasted, dark but mellow, sweet drink somewhere between toffee and caramel. The flavor is straightforward and nostalgic, leading to a satisfying and comfortable sip. Perfect for perking up in the morning with a caffeinated and carbs-free way to satisfy your sugar cravings. I find this tea especially enjoyable during the autumn season, ideal for bringing to mind trick-or-treating, firesides, brisk mornings, and cozy evenings.
