With real toffee bits, this is a decadent dessert tea with a tantalizing taste! Surprise guests with this delicious alternative to coffee.
Yum! This is so good!
As some of you know, once upon a time, I used to blend/flavor my own line of teas. I have since closed that business because I came to realize that while I loved the artistic aspect of the business, I didn’t like the business aspect. I’m an artist, and I find myself much more suited to drinking tea and writing about it than trying to sell it.
But I digress.
I mentioned my previous business only because during those days, I created a blend called “Sweet Caramel O’Mine” (yes, I’m a huge Guns N’ Roses fan). I have had several people ask me since then about suitable replacements for this blend, and at that point, I really didn’t have an answer for them. I blended that blend because I couldn’t find a caramel flavored tea that was caramel-y enough while still maintaining the tea flavor. So I created one.
However, I think I have finally found a caramel flavored tea that I could suggest as a suitable replacement for that coveted blend.
And … this is it.
Yep. Now, I can’t say that this is as good as my Sweet Caramel O’Mine (because there is just a wee bit of bias there, that was one of my babies, you understand). But this is the first caramel flavored tea that I’ve tried that tastes so good that I would recommend it as a substitute for those who are missing my Sweet Caramel O’Mine.
Really, I can think of no higher praise for a tea than to recommend it as a replacement for one of my now retired blends.
The black tea is rich and delicious. The caramel/toffee flavor is sweet and creamy. Together they create an amazingly decadent delight.
Well done, Element Tea. Well done!
