 (25 reviews)

type: black

origin: sri lanka flavors

caffeine: strong

price level: $$$$

Depending on where you're from, you may either say 'car-a-mel' or 'CAR-mel.' Anyway you put it, though, our bright, tangy Ceylon black tea accented with rich notes of Caramel flavoring (sugar free, by the way!) is sure to have you saying, 'wow! that's good!' Rich, dark Caramel aroma, molasses notes. Dense and decadent cup, with a sweet, brown sugar aftertaste.

Our natural Caramel flavor is vegan-friendly and doesn't contain any dairy ingredients. Steep at 212°F for 3 minutes

      Thoroughly enjoyed this tea. Smelled sweet and wonderful and tasted fabulous. Sweet and tasty and not overpowering. Perfect when you are craving a treat.

      One of my favorite black teas from Adagio. Great to blend with other flavors. it's a true, mild, sweet caramel flavor. Tastes as expected. I mix this with the cream sometimes to have a more flavorful cup.

      This was relatively smooth when hot, but difficult to detect caramel notes. Caramel became more prevalent as the tea cooled off, but it was still quite subtle. I found that prewing for 3min at 212 left more of an astringent aftertaste as well. My second brew was for 4 min at 190F and I found that to be less astringent. With that said, the caramel wasn't any more prevalent that the previous brew. I probably wouldn't repurchase this, but it's not a terrible tea either.

      This is such a great tea to blend with! The caramel is rich and smooth, and pairs well with tons of other flavors.

      On its own, it's okay, but as part of a blend, it can make miracles happen.

      I really like this tea! I drank it on its own to give it a fair review, but I plan to use it mostly for my own blends. It is so interesting and is actually more complex of a flavor than I anticipated. It almost tastes like raisins to me, which isn't unpleasant (and I don't particularly care for raisins.) I probably would not choose to drink it on its own often, but I can't wait to blend it with other things!

      I am a huge fan of caramel and was hoping this would be a comparable vegan alternative to Bigelow's Salted Caramel bags. I don't know if it was a bad batch or what but it tasted so artificial and off. I really hoped it would be good but I had to give it to a friend. They enjoy it, however, thus the stars.

      am increasingly a fan of dessert teas, and caramel is a fave

      Oof this is just not great. Very astringent and no amount of milk or sugar helps.

      This is nice! The flavor is good and the aroma is even better! I love the way this smells so much.

      This tea definitley benefits from sugar and milk. I do wish the caramel was a bit stronger, but I also know from experience that it can be difficult to get a strong caramel taste with flavorants without it tasting too artificial. I did manage multiple steeps out of this though. Even if the second steep didn't really have the caramel flavor, it was still a nice black tea.

      I really loved this tea. I added 3 oz unsweetened vanilla almond milk and stevia and turned it into a dulce de Leche latte. :)

      A flavorful blending agent but solid on its own. Today I made a Latte with it woth half &half and a little honey.

      This tea was pleasantly aromatic. The taste after brewing was not well blended. The addition of foamed milk enhanced the tea/caramel flavors to create a delicious treat.

      Not so good. Very bitter and astringent, even after brewing at a lower temperature.

    • 

      I steeped low and quick to avoid bitterness and ended up with a weak but smooth and enjoyable cup of tea.

      Decent caramel tea. I couldn't really taste the caramel flavor tho

      I feel like the caramel flavor is just too chemical, thus I can’t enjoy the tea

      Decent caramel tea, hard to find ones that don't taste artificial. NOt overly caramel, but I prefer this to one that tastes fake.

      This was a decent tea but could have more flavor. I didn't notice much caramel flavor.

      I love bumping up the caramel flavor in other teas by adding in some of this caramel tea. Gives any cup of tea a nice warmth of flavor.

      Pretty good, but the caramel can be a little artificial-tasting.

      quite good with milk, can be a little strange on it's own.

      It's good, but I really can't taste any caramel notes. I will probably not order anymore of it.

      If you have a sweet tooth and you're looking for something to have that isn't going to kill your calorie count then this tea is it. It is a great blend of Black tea and caramel flavoring. If you like the taste of the little square caramels you get a Halloween time then you'll really enjoy this tea. It is also delicious when topped with some cream and a touch of sweetener of your choice.
