This is really yummy! I don’t know if this Milkie Way Candy Bar Tea from Dori’s Cottage tastes just like a candy bar, but, I do taste the flavors of chocolate, caramel and vanilla cream, along with a rich tasting black tea base, and I am really enjoying the taste of this.
The flavoring is about on even keel with the black tea base – that is to say, that while don’t think that the black tea stands out as the strongest taste in this cup, I don’t think that the chocolate, cream and caramel flavors are overwhelming the cup either. There’s a good balance between flavoring and tea.
This is a very flavorful black tea – I suspect it is a Ceylon, but it very good quality one. It has a rich taste to it, and I don’t know if it’s this particular combination of flavors that enhances it, but I do taste an ever-so-slight smoky note as well as hint of earth. There are notes of fruit … very distant notes, but I taste them.
There is a nice level of chocolate flavoring here, and I like the way it mingles with the aforementioned slightly smoky tones. It brings out the roasted flavor of the cacao. The caramel is sweet with a vague bitter burnt-sugar note. And then there is the cream which gives the overall cup a very luscious, sweet, creamy taste.
A very enjoyable cuppa, delicious hot or cold – very nice as a latte!
