drank Caramel by Dilmah
1379 tasting notes

I fancy a little indulgence moment right now and chose this wonderful sounding caramel tea. My cat quite likes the smell of this one =^_^=
I am hoping that Las Vegas, Nevada have some unique tea’s that I can buy later in the week when I visit. I imagined they would be sweet like this one sounds.

The colour is dark brown and almost looks like a hot chocolate.
The smell is sweet but you can also smell the black tea so it’s sweet yet bitter.

It tastes like a normal black tea but with two sugars to give it a lot of sweetness. I wouldn’t say it tasted like caramel per say but it certainly is sweet. Not too sweet though if you are used to sweet black tea anyway. I was hoping in fact that it would be sweeter and much more caramel like.
The black tea is alright, a little bitter and strong tasting.

If I ordered tea in a shop and was given this I would have absolutely no idea that it was caramel tea. It just tastes like a normal black tea with a sugar in it and a slight chemical taste.
Not very pleasing…..so much for my indulgence.

I’m 34 years old from Leicester, England named Kayleigh.

I started off many years ago drinking herbal and fruit teas which over time peaked my interest in trying new types. Eventually I began to import and sample many different teas and cultures which I still do today. My life goal is to try as many teas and ways of having tea as possible.

Tea wise my cravings change constantly from pu erh one month to jasmine green to the next and so on.

I also enjoy watching Japanese Anime and horror films.

I am always up for tea swaps so if you see anything in my virtual cupboard then please contact me.

A short list to help swapping with me easier though honestly I am not fussy and am willing to try anything. Plus the notes below are usually, sometimes I love a tea that has an ingredient I tend to dislike and other times I hate a tea that I thought I would love.

Likes: Any fruit but especially melon and orange, vanilla, all tea types (black, green, white etc), nuts (any), flowers, ginger, chai.

Dislikes: Licorice, aniseed, clove, eucalyptus, lavender.

My rating system
I have my own way of rating teas that makes each one personal. I have different categories, I rate each tea depending on what it is made of. For example: I rate green teas in a different way to black teas or herbal teas. So black, white, green, Pu Erh, Rooibos, Oolong, blends and tisanes all have their own rating system. That way I can compare them with other teas of the same or similar type before for an adequate rating. And when I do give top marks which is very rare I am actually saying that I would love to drink that tea all day, every day if possible. It’s a tea that I would never turn down or not be in the mood for. So while I agree that no tea is 100% perfect (as nothing is) I am saying that it’s as close as it comes to it. After all, in my book the perfect teas (or close to perfect anyway) are ones that I could drink all the time. That is why you will find a high quality black or Oolong will not have as high a score as a cheap flavoured blend, they are simply not being compared in the same category.
