The first time I accidentally overbrewed it which totally eliminated the caramel. The second time I was more careful.
Both the dry leaves and the brewed cup have a nice smell of old-fashioned caramel. The taste is mostly black tea, a pleasant black tea indeed, with a hint of caramel. I’m not a big fan of caramel teas so I appreciate the subtleness. If you want a stronger caramel you might want to pick another tea, but simply adding sweetener to this one works as well.
(I also noticed that the cooled tea tastes more of caramel)
