White Chocolate Samoa by The NecessiTeas

Yay, a white chocolate coconut tea! With caramel! And it’s caffeine free, so it’s great as a nightcap. I approximated the steeping instructions for this tea, noticing as I did so that there’s plenty of coconut visible in the dry tea. It has a sweet creamy smell even when dry.

Caramel Popcorn Matcha from Red Leaf Tea

It’s been a while since our last Red Leaf Tea review so I thought why not write about Caramel Popcorn Matcha from Red Leaf Tea! The color of this is a grey-green but the old sniffer is drawn to the smell of it!  It sure DOES smell like Caramel Popcorn with the vegetal matcha by it’s side!  I was surprised to learn that the only two ingredients in this was matcha and peanut butter flavoring! Caramel Popcorn Matcha from Red Leaf Tea is really delicious!   It does taste like Caramel Popcorn and matcha!  The gently popped likeness was just enough Read More

Milk Caramel from Lupicia

Tea Information: Leaf Type:  Green Where to Buy:  Lupicia Tea Description: Sweet aroma of milk caramel brings out the comforting aroma of houjicha. Learn more about this tea here. Taster’s Review: The scent of this tea is reminds me of roasted grass topped with something sweet. A part of me dislikes just how roasted this tea smells, but when I sip this blend, I’m reminded of why I like it so much. I enjoy how balanced this tea is. The caramel is soft, but adds the nicest whisper of sweetness to the roasty Hojicha. It reminds me a bit of those chewy caramel squares Read More
