Picture of Caramel Tea

Caramel Tea from Culinary Teas

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: Sri Lanka / Ceylon

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 26th, 2014

The aroma is very sweet with notes of burnt sugar and vanilla with a hint of black tea, it very much so smells like tea and candy. Once brewed the aroma becomes quite malty and rich with notes of toffee and creamy sweetness.

The taste is pretty intense tasting almost more like a caramel mochiatto than tea! Strong no...

Caramel Apple Oolong from 52 Teas

Style: Flavored Oolong – Region: Fujian, China

50 / 100 Aroma: 3/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 20th, 2014

The aroma smells nothing like apples or caramel, it smells like melons. I really do not like melons. Once brewed the melon smell dies down and there are notes of apples and caramel.

I am going to start this by saying I like the Oolong base, it is rich and sweet with caramel notes (ok that actually could be from the ...

Laoshan Genmaicha from Verdant Tea

Style: Genmaicha – Region: Shandong, China

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 13th, 2014

The aroma is a lovely blend of nuttiness, vegetal and sweet. The brewed leaves have a toasted quality along with a blend of green beans and a hint of citrus. All the scents are subtle and balanced.

The taste is quite different from the traditional Japanese Genmaicha, more vegetal and herbaceous rather than grassy. ...

Toasted Marshmallow from DAVIDsTEA

Style: Flavored Black Tea – Region: ?????

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 10th, 2014

The aroma is sweet and spicy, notes of marshmallow, cinnamon, toffee, and malt with a strong note of allspice. Smells a bit like spiced rum. The brewed tea still smells like spiced rum with less marshmallow sweetness. The liquid is much sweeter with strong spicy notes.

The taste sweet and malty with a velvety mouthf...

Smaug Tea from 52 Teas

Jan. 1st, 2014

The aroma of this tea is intense, so much so it made me sneeze. Lots of heat and spice with a hint of smoke. The brewed tea brings more vegetal aroma with the spice and the liquid without the leaves is smooth, vegetal and spicy with a hint of smokiness.

The taste is intense, starting off sweetly vegetal with the mi...

Bourbon Vanilla from Kusmi Tea

Style: Vanilla Black Tea – Region: Blend

63 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 27th, 2013

The aroma of this tea is mild with notes of vanilla, oak, and fruit. The steeped leaves lose the aroma of vanilla (it is all in the liquid) with notes of fruit and malt.

The taste is fairly mild and subtly sweet and creamy. Not an outstanding tea but a pleasant dessert or morning sip.

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Dec. 19th, 2013

The aroma is very sweet and fruity, specifically exotic fruits. The citrus tones make me think of dragonfruit. Once brewed the leaves become malty and the sweetness becomes more of a passion fruit aroma. There is also a hint of peach.

The taste is not as sweet as I was expecting from the aroma and I found it a bit ...

Pu-erh Chai from Golden Moon Tea

Style: Chai / Spiced Tea – Region: ?????

90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 8th, 2013

The aroma is a wonderful mix of earthiness and spice, especially cardamon. Once brewed the flavor becomes earthy, loamy, and spicy. It reminds me of a spiced forest floor. The brewed tea has an oaky aroma also with cardamon.

The taste is sweet with notes of cardamon, loam, earthy, oak, and a hint of cinnamon. With ...

Style: Flavored Pu-erh – Region: ?????

63 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Dec. 7th, 2013

The aroma of this tea is almost all chocolate, vanilla, and spices. I do not detect any Pu Erh, just the truffle like aroma of chocolate. Once I steep the bag I start to notice some earthy Pu Erh but it is still mostly chocolate.

Tasting the tea leaves me a bit disappointed, not much in the way of Pu Erh flavor, it...

Dec. 6th, 2013

The aroma of this tea is so reminiscent of Chocolate Oranges that I think I got instantly transferred to a Christmas candy store. There is a bit of the Pu Erh Earthiness but mostly it is chocolate and oranges. Same for when the tea is steeped.

The taste is very smooth, sweet and well balanced. The chocolate and ora...

Dec. 5th, 2013

The aroma is a mixture of roses, leather, earthiness, and yeastiness. Brewing the tea brought on the aroma of earthiness and heady roses, it is quite intense.

I was able to get five steepings out of this tea and probably could have gotten more! The first steep tasted like leather and earthy, it was a bit biter but ...

Dec. 3rd, 2013

The first thing I noticed about this tea's aroma is the strawberry, which immediately reminded me of Crunch Berries! I also pick up notes of cream, hazelnut, earthiness, and minerals. It is a complex tea.

The taste is also complex, first there is a blend of earthy, metallic, and mineral flavors that really pop in m...

Dec. 3rd, 2013

Taking my fangirling out of the picture for this review, because I have a very distinct idea of what Butterbeer should taste like and I don't want that to skew things. The aroma is intensely like Rootbeer, which would be great if I liked rootbeer, which I don't. Once brewed it takes on a creamy note and a slight hint o...

The aroma of this tea is a fantastic blend of the different ingredients in this tea, no one aroma is dominant and they are well balanced. It is nothing short of exotic. The brewed tea is equally delicious blending floral, citrus, saffron, and frankincense.

The taste is delicious mixing honey and fruity sweetness wi...

Nov. 20th, 2013

The aroma of this tea is nothing short of yummy! Bringing coconut, chocolate, and vanilla notes for a tea that smells like a German Chocolate cupcake. The brewed leaves are richer and the chocolate is more prominent. In the liquid is so similar to a cupcake that it could have fooled me!

The taste is very rich and d...

The aroma of this haunted tea is sweet and full of blueberries and chocolate, no ghosts though but that may be a good thing. The steeped tea is more malt and chocolate, less blueberry. The liquid is much the same but as it cools the chocolate becomes more prominent.

The taste is great! A good blend of black teas wit...

The aroma is sweet and spicy, lots of spice! The most prevalent spice is clove. Once the tea is brewed the spices balance out and is perfect for a chilly day. A very autumnal aroma indeed.

The taste is great, a balance of sweetness and spiciness. It tastes just like pumpkin pie spice (no pumpkin of course) and is p...

Oct. 28th, 2013

The aroma is very sweet, lots of almond and cherry goodness, sadly no aroma of tea sneaks through. Once steeped you can smell a bit of a leafy green tea aroma along with the now mellowed out cherry and almond.

The taste is mellow and smooth. Not very sweet (unlike the aroma) and a nice blend of almond and cherry. It...

Oct. 21st, 2013

The aroma on this tea is very much what it says on the bag, caramel and matcha. Super sweet and a little decadent.

Drinking it cold is delicious, very smooth and creamy. The matcha flavors are prominent and the caramel tastes more like caramelized sugar than candy.

When it is warm the flavors become creamier an...

Oct. 13th, 2013

The aroma of this tea is wonderful, a bit herbaceous from the Silver Needles and full of floral and straw notes from the roses and chamomile. It takes on a rich sage aroma once it is brewed and the liquid retains a bit of the sage and mixes it with the rose and chamomile aroma.

The taste is very refreshing and mildl...

The aroma is a wonderful blend of fruits and flowers, it is amazing. It is also followed by notes of pine resin. This tea has one of the cleanest aromas I have ever had the pleasure of smelling.

The taste is delectable, I can taste vanilla, jasmine, pine resin, and honeysuckle. It blends wonderfully and is sweet a...

This tea smells like leaves, no herb or aroma sticks out as being prominent, it is just dried leaves. It smells like nature! Sadly this means it does not smell like figs or honey which is disappointing. After it is steeped the aroma of honey is present along with herbaceous notes.

The taste is odd, a bit tingly and ...

Marshmallow steals the show! Not necessarily the candy sweet but the sweetness of marshmallow root. There are also vegetal notes and a bit of mint. Once steeped the leaves have more mint and the marshmallow sweetness becomes more light, replaced with more vegetal.

The flavor is sweet and minty. Very mild and subtle...

The aroma of this tea is incredibly sweet and tropical, almost to the point of being too intense. The fruits are very prominent, but sadly none of the other aromas shine through.

The taste is a letdown, all that sweet build up in the aroma and steeping but the taste is herbal and tart. Very little taste of fruit at...

This tea is nutty goodness! The aroma is nutty, malty, and just slightly burnt. Luckily the burnt aroma fades with brewing and the aroma becomes much richer.

The taste is delicious, very evocative of the cold night curled up in front of a fire munching on chestnuts. Subtle sweetness mixed with roasted nuttiness for...
