GCTTB

People are always very surprised when they learn I don’t drink coffee. Personally I just don’t like the flavor and I have never needed it for the caffeine so why drink something I don’t enjoy? What I do enjoy though is sugar. When people who know I don’t drink coffee see me with Starbucks cups, there first comment is “I thought you don’t drink coffee?!” to which I respond “I don’t, I drink sugar” which at the end of the day, most of the mixed drinks are more syrup and milk than they are actually coffee.

So, when I saw this blend in the teabox, I thought it would probably make a good latte. Sipping on it now, I would say it is quite nice though the base is stronger than I would like. It’s a little bit woody but there is also a slight caramel flavor that is working with the base and the milk of the latte. Does it compare to an actual caramel macchiato, maybe not so much because the flavor is far more subtle but at the same time there is less of the espresso component here so that caramel is more prominent. I suppose based on your preferences that could be good or bad. For me it would be a good thing but I find myself looking for another pump of caramel syrup…like I said, I drink sugar :P.

Thank you Sil for adding this to the box. It was a fun one to try!

Terri sent this one my way – surprising in some respects because it doesn’t seem like her cup of tea heh. The dry aroma of this one is downright amazing… creamy caramel, mocha…. noms.
Brewed (4 mins) this is a little less intense than the aroma would suggest – there’s a little of the honeybush taste that comes through, but it doesn’t interfere with the deliciousness. I think this one will be worth trying as a latte at some point as well. thankfully i’ve got more than enough to play with this, thanks to the generosity of my tea sister!
