Latte Sipdown (638)!
Making this one as a latte was VariaTEA’s recommendation, so that’s exactly what I did. I’m a fan of the chocolate peanut butter cup tea that DT sells, which is quite similar to this one, so I was excited to see how this would compare. As far as I can tell, the BIG different between these two is that this one has caramel pieces in it? For me, that’s actually a really good selling point – but who knows if they would drastically impact the flavour.
I think the ultimate answer is that this does make for a REALLY tasty latte, but not one that’s massively different from the DT version. It’s perhaps a little bit sweeter from the caramel, and it has a super creamy/nutty peanut butter taste that does loosely emulate the filling of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup/comparable candy. I don’t think it’s nearly as much chocolate as the DT version!? However it’s hard to say without a direct comparison. Even if that’s true, I’m ok with the trade off for the sweeter/richer nutty components. Yeah; this one was REALLY good and I’m super happy I decided to do it up as a latte because it was the perfect cap to a long shift at work and gave me this really indulgent moment!
