This is tea 16/50 I bought in a Stash Assortment. Smells nice. Very light flavor, mostly coffee.

Flavors: Coffee

The tea bag smells like other Stash desert teas do, with a twist: it melds that now familiar old yogurt raisin smell with carpet. Clean carpet, but still . . . carpet. What happens when you drop the bag into water? The carpet is wet now. The carpet is wet.
I didn’t really want to finish this. It is not good on the tongue; it tastes like dried out raisins. Sunmaid. But, bafflingly, the caramel aftertaste is pretty true and the smell in the cup is very true. Why it smells weird from further away is a mystery. Why this made it to market is a bigger mystery; it’s gag-worthy.

This tea bag was from a family member’s work. She found it stuffed at the bottom of the wrong tea box. So it’s quite possibly pretty old.

Tasting Notes: The cocoa shells come through along with some notes of campfire smoke and wood. The monk fruit adds some sweetness that perhaps for some might remind someone of a dessert. Although I don’t get dessert from this cup just sweetness and roasted earthy and smoky flavors. It is a pretty interesting tea just not what you would expect. The chocolate notes with the sweetness and complexity of the other notes I would say that this could be considered a dessert tea for some but it would be a chocolate perhaps with some salt.

I would drink this myself occasionally but it’s not a tea I need to have in my cupboard per say. This tea is quite tricky to describe so it’s best to try it on your own and form your own opinion of it.

I love this tea so much. Granted, I’m a bit of a sucker for salted caramel, and I was very happy when that flavor combination became widely popular a few years ago. I believe I discovered this tea last year on the shelf. It is one of my go-to teas in the autumn and winter. It smells heavenly. The flavor itself is a little flat if you steep it in too-hot water, but when you get the combination just right it’s so soothing and perfect. I’ll honestly drink it any time of the day or night – especially if it’s bitter-cold outside or rainy. It’s especially nice if you pair it with a creamer/milk. I do a little glop of almond milk with mine.

Fairly decent overall. Brewed up light and sweet – mostly a weak chocolate flavor but some salted caramel flavor in the background. This is probably one of the best desert flavored teas that I’ve encountered, still I highly doubt I will be buying more when I finish the box.

Second tea I’m sampling today, this one caught my attention because I like Stash teas but I’ve never seen this one being sold in store. The concept sounds intriguing, and I figured the salted caramel theme might be appropriate for the holiday season. I only left the bag in for about 2 minutes because the tea turned dark quite quickly and I can smell a slight herbal bitterness to it (the mate?) so better safe than sorry.

The aroma does smell like caramel, but it’s mixed in with that strange ashy note that I can only assume belongs to the mate. It almost reminds be of the earthiness of puerh, but not the same type, if that makes any sense.

I couldn’t really taste the salted caramel in the tea. It was overpowered by the earthy/herbal notes that gave off a slightly ashy aroma. It was faint, and only in the background. Overall it just wasn’t for me. I didn’t really expect the flavour of mate to overwhelm everything else. I’m glad I at least didn’t leave it for be recommended 3-5 minutes!

Arggh! I hope the rest of your tea experiences are stellar after this rough start.


That was pretty much my take on that tea


No worries, there is literally more tea in the box than I can probably go through in a week! I’m sure there are some great ones just waiting to be sampled.

Roswell Strange

Oh no! I’m sorry you didn’t like this one; it was one I added in.


Davids tea has a salted caramel rooibos. I had it the other day. I think rooibos is a great base fir a caramel tea. It was really good.


Correction toffee rooibos

The smell of this teabag when I opened the was frankly awful, I’m not sure what I was expecting but it wasn’t something that smelled like spoiled cheese. I almost threw it out right there and then, but I decided to give it a chance. The flavour is tolerable, but not really what I’d call salted caramel. It’s mostly a smokey mate flavour with (very) burnt sugar notes. I’m glad I only grabbed one teabag.

Drank while adding all my teas to my cupboard and eating sweet strawberry candies, which may have influenced the flavor.

A sample from Roswell Strange. This has to be one of the oddest combinations ever? I mean, mate, black, herbal…? Surely it’s hardly herbal if it’s got both mate and black tea in it, neither of which are renowned for their caffeine free-ness. I can get behind the idea of mate and black, though, and caramel works well with darker teas as a flavour, so…maybe?I have another question. What’s monk fruit? Please don’t say fruit eaten by monks. I could google, but the people at work would think I’m odd. Or odder than they already think I am, anyway. Maybe that’s one for later.

I gave the bag 3 minutes in boiling water, and it’s brewed up to a medium golden-brown, no additions. The initial taste is very heavy on the mate – quite earthy and pungent with a burnt coffee-like aftertaste. There’s also something smoky, although I can’t pinpoint exactly what. Maybe the mate? The monk fruit? Ha. I didn’t get much caramel initially, but as the cup cools I can begin to taste it. It’s a little on the artificial side, but not too badly, and there is a hint of salt. The salt actually works really well with the savoury flavour of the mate and the smoke – somehow it helps to bring everything together. Then with the underlying richness of the caramel, it actually makes for a pretty decent cup. I’m not even sure how it is that earth, coffee, smoke, salt and caramel taste good together, but they kind of do so there you go. My befuddled morning brain can’t make any more sense of things than that.

I think monk fruit is a natural sugar-free sweetener, like stevia (though with a different taste).


Stash really is magical in terms of the depth and interestingness of their bagged offerings.

Super Starling!

Weird. Totally on my to-try list now. Caramel is my weakness.
