Tasters Review:

I know it seems that I have a major sweet tooth lately but I really don’t.  It’s just that Simpson & Vail have all these new tea offerings and I can’t contain excitement!  I really LOVE them all!

Chocolate Caramel Tea…need I say more?  Buttery smooth but velvety caramel and chocolate! This is Really amazing!  Nice!  Many of you know I hate to use the term “mouth feel” but that’s the only way I can explain it!  It has a nice mouth feel (I cringe every time I say it! LOL) and the flavor is amazing!

  1. Interesting that this tea has safflower petals. Wouldn’t have expected that at all in a chocolate caramel tea. Is that just to look pretty? Probably doesn’t add to the taste though, right? Or take away from it for that matter?

    1. Yes, I believe that is the reason for the addition of safflower petals. Having tried this tea, I don’t recall tasting much from the safflower. Many of the petals that are added to teas are generally added to add some color to the dry leaf rather than to add much flavor. This is especially true of blends that contain the calendula petals – and that is something that I actually learned as a blender myself – a “trick” that was passed on to me by another blender.
