From Bigelow

Beautifully balanced tea with creamy rich caramel flavor and just a hint of salt as an undertone

Enjoy this popular combination of sweet and salty, now in a teacup. Our all natural blend of hand-picked black tea and succulent caramel with just a hint of salt flavor is the perfect treat. Add a splash of milk and a little sweetener for a sublime guilt-free indulgence.

Ingredients
Black Tea, Natural Flavors (Soy Lecithin), Rose Hips, Chicory Root

STEEPING INSTRUCTIONS
Be sure to start with fresh cold water and bring to a rolling boil.
Pour over tea bag, steep for 4 minutes (or whatever time you like), remove bag (but no squeezing please!).

For Iced Tea by the Glass: Steep a little longer. Pour over ice.

This tea I received a teabag of in a Swapbot Tea Bag Swap she said it was one of her favorites.
I’ve never rated this one though I do believe I have tried this one before several years ago.

I accidentally oversteeped this by a lot :/ Whoops
This tea smells really good very dessert like and reminiscent of caramel
I know I oversteeped this by a lot but It’s tasting Burnt with a very artificial almost alcohol like butterscotch flavor. I do believe that this tea was also somewhat similar tasting when I have previously tried it and not oversteeped it.

Flavors: Alcohol, Artificial, Bitter, Burnt, Butterscotch

Preparation
Boiling 8 OZ / 236 ML

I’m giving mugs and tea to my staff this holiday, and bought an assortment of Bigelow and Twinings teabags to include. I’m tasting all of the blends before giving them out…for science.
Not a fan of this one. It’s sickeningly sweet and the chicory is extremely strong, which is a really odd combination.

I feel wrong liking it :D Well, maybe… maybe I wouldn’t anymore?

Dustin

Martin, I still like a couple of Celestial Seasonings herbal blends. We like what we like. :)

I remember this being one of the first teas I ever tried when I was “getting into” tea back in… 2016? (Yes, I’m still relatively “new” to the game compared to the rest of you!) and didn’t like it either! But I usually struck out with Bigelow and my palate. Twinings and my palate, on the other hand, tend to always be a home run!

“For science”…haha! :D

Martin- Don’t feel wrong liking it! We all have different tastes!

Martin Bednář

Well, there are so much things that affect final “enjoyment”, from water to actual ratio of ingredients in the tea; counting as well actual mood. And i do like salted caramel, soo… :)

amandastory516

Martin- That’s very true!

This is a good tea year-round, but it seems to only be sold in the Fall where I have bought it. It’s great for anyone who isn’t a fan of pumpkin spice or chai. It would probably be good with a touch of cocoa in it.

I grabbed this tea because I was feeling a little nostalgic for the Eggnog tea that Bigelow used to have…also I’m a sucker for anything that says Salted Caramel. It’s not that good. It kind has a sweet scent…but not salted caramel and certainly doesn’t taste like salted caramel. I don’t like the scent. And I don’t like the tea. I’m not sure how to really describe except…YUCK. I even let a friend at work try some and my mom and they thought it was nasty too. Can’t even be saved with milk and sugar.

Received via postcrossing.
I do not have mood for gong-fu. I do not have mood even for tea, but otherwise the morning would not work.

Need tea. Which one? Why not freshest one I have?
Okay, took this one. It smells heavily after caramel. Aroma when boiled is rather salty + mineral. But this is Salted Caramel, so both scents are reasonable.

Liquor is cloudy, darker copper.

But taste? It is not so bad actually! I expected it much sweeter, but it taste actually like liquid salted caramel. It is not even too bitter (okay, I steeped just for 3.5 minutes).

Not my favourite, DF oolong is bit better. But certainly not totally bad.

Is postcrossing a person?

Martin Bednář

Nope. Postcrossing is a movement where you have to send postcards and you receive some. It’s cool.

This tea has a surprisingly good caramel flavor for a grocery store brand and has become a mainstay in my household, at least until/unless it goes away when out of season. It’s not cloying or obviously fake-tasting. (I mean, clearly it hasn’t got real caramel in it, but I don’t sip it and go “wow, this sure is some Artificial Caramel Flavor” like I do with Bigelow’s vanilla tea.) With a little milk it’s a nice, creamy, sweet-but-not-overpoweringly-so black tea. It really isn’t salty at all, though; calling it “salted caramel” is clearly a trend-hopping marketing tactic more than an accurate description. But it’s still good!

This tea put me off immediately by smelling sickeningly sweet. I made it at work, and my coworker seated on the other side of the cube kitty-corner to me could smell the cup, it was just so syrupy-sweet smelling! I enjoy sweet teas, and it took me a long time to wean myself off adding sugar to my cuppa, and even I thought, “Ugh, that looks way too sweet!”

The taste was far too syrupy to me. There was certainly a caramely flavor to it, but it came off as a caramel-infusion of maple syrup rather than a caramel-flavored tea. I thought that adding sweetener was throwing fuel onto the fire, but trying to drink it plain, it somehow came off as far too astringent, despite having such a sweet flavor. The whole taste was just off-putting to me. I found it drinkable when I sweetened it, but it was so sweet I didn’t particularly like it. I couldn’t seem to find any happy medium where it came off right. The flavor and the blend just wasn’t my cup of tea.

I grabbed this on a whim, when I was looking for Twining’s Salted Caramel tea. It’s a nice black tea, it’s warm and vanilla-y. The caramel notes come out more with the help of a sweetener, so I use a packet of stevia when I really want that dessert flavour. My only question is, where is the saltiness?
