Yum! This delicious Creme Caramel Black Tea Blend from Upton Tea Imports almost reminds me of the caramel blend that I used to sell back when I was blending teas. Although, I have to say it: I think mine was just a little better. I think it was that my blend was a balance of both Ceylon and Assam teas, and the malty tones of the Assam really accentuated the caramel flavors marvelously.
But, I’m not here to reminisce about my blending days! I’m here to talk about this tea!
And this tea is yummy! It is sweet and caramel-y, just as a caramel tea should be. The black tea base is smooth and mild, but with a richness to it that provides an ample backdrop for the delectable flavor of luscious caramel. It is a delightful treat for someone with a sweet tooth (like me!), this tea would certainly satisfy that sweet craving without fat and calories.
I liked this served straight, but I do think that a small amount of sugar will amplify the caramel tones just a bit. (I used about a 1/4 teaspoon for my tea mug and it enhanced the flavor without making it too sweet.) It would also be really delicious as a latte!
The above description states that this one is “back in stock” but I did want to alert my readers to the fact that supplies appear to be quite limited on this one, so if you want it … better hurry and grab it while you can! This one seems to be a really popular one – and with good reason. It’s delicious!
