Thank you VariaTEA for sending this one my way! I was interested to try it for sure; anything with caramel typically catches my eye, and I’m not one to shy away from caffeine either!
I made this one hot, and then added a fair bit of milk to it as well. The flavour was really nice and smooth; obviously sweet caramel notes, but also the sweetness of like condensed milk which I’m sure was exaggerated by my addition of milk in the first place . The mate base was very roasty, which almost made it just a little coffee like, as well as toasty and nutty. It was a really nice compliment to the overall caramel sweetness.
This wasn’t really anything fancy, and I’ve definitely tried similar teas before too – but I enjoyed it a lot for what it was and I’m thankful I got to try it!
