From The Republic of Tea

This premium black tea was inspired by classic French crème brûlée infused with the exotic spiciness of fresh cardamom. A splash of warm milk brings out the richness in this cup.

A hundred-foot journey begins in that moment when you bravely drop what is familiar and cross over into a new realm that is far out of your comfort zone. It is a profound journey, however small in physical distance, that materially changes the course of your life for the better.

“The Hundred-Foot Journey” is directed by acclaimed Academy Award® and Golden Globe® nominee Lasse Hallström from a script by Steven Knight and is based on the international best-selling novel of the same name by Richard C. Morais. Produced by Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey and Juliet Blake.

Bagged blasphemy! This one is really good. I actually have the same tea but just renamed as Cardamom Caramel Sweet Journey Tea. I knew I would like it, but I didn’t expect to like it nearly as much as I did. The first time I brewed it, it was around two minutes and thirty to forty five seconds and it was perfect. Primarily sweet, and strongly flavored by the caramel and subtly spicy with a playful fruity background from the blackberry leaves. Steep 2 at four minutes, the caramel remains but the cardamom really shines with blackberry leaves. Also tasty cold- you really get the smaller flavors this time.

Yeah, I’m rating another bagged tea in the nineties.Keep in mind that I think about price when I’m rating teas, and this was about $11 bucks for 50 bags. Considering how flavorful this tea can be, and me being a college student on the go, this is what I need. Now; Revolution Tea’s Blackberry Jasmine and Dragon Eye are on my hit list for bagged teas. Teatulia’s bagged oolong is coming to me soon. And now waiting on a few selections of loose leaf…

Hey, nothing wrong with a bagged tea if it tastes delicious.

Agreed, as long as the taste + cost as good, rate it however you feel :). I had the same occurrence this summer with iced teas: some bagged teas from Celestial Seasonings (true blueberry + black cherry) made better iced teas than almost all of the other loose leaf fruit blends I had all summer at 1/4 of the price! Not to mention there’s no filter to clean up with bags :)

Up to now, I have never really found a Republic of Tea tea that I really have to have. Their stuff is okay, and I definitely appreciate when it’s offered in cafes as opposed to certain other bagged teas, but none of their main line really grab me. I got an email about this one, though, and it sounded ideal—I had to get it.

Honestly, this tea exceeded all my expectations. Without milk it’s a gentle cardamom (but still with a little kick), with some definite cream and vanilla tones. With milk added the cardamom is more subdued and the crème brûlée comes out in full force, as close to drinking custard as I’ve ever gotten.

Of course, this one is a limited edition, so I’m going to have to stock up while I can. It may become my go-to morning cup!
