From Dear Camellia

Built with a base of Darjeeling black tea, this collection is bursting with colour & flavour. Served hot or cold with ice and maybe some cut up fruit if you’re feeling fancy. Cocktail umbrella not included.

TASTE:

A strong whiff of the buttery popcorn as well as the sweet Belgian caramel bits takes you right past the Candy Bar as this tea is all the treats you need. Sweet and bold with the Darjeeling black tea, this treat should be drunk at anytime throughout the day but is even better in front of a movie.

INGREDIENTS:

Darjeeling Orthodox Black Tea, Belgian Caramel bits, Popcorn and Food Flavours

PREPARATION:

Black based fruit Tea should be prepared with 3g per 200ml of water at 80-90C for about 2-3 minutes. Can be re-steeped 2-3 additional times. Thereafter, new tea should be added.

Gah! I wrote this review some time ago when I was between homes and out of town and often without wifi access. And now, here it is. Belatedly.

The popcorn bits are huge, so I used double the amount of leaf that I ordinarily would. I steeped for about 5 or 6 minutes, longer for the second and third steeps.

Drinking this black and unsweetened.

The scent of the steeped tea is intoxicating muscatel and a hint of lime. The tea liquid is murky.

Muscatel, fruitiness of the darjeeling comes up with a touch of caramel sweetness. The caramel complements the muscatel, just adding that slightest bit of something, but not to the extent that you would know that something was added.

Each sip lends a pleasant silkiness in the mouth and on the tongue.

Enjoying these cups; however, the name of the blend is deceptive. The candy bar effect is only the slightest bit of added sweetness to the already sweet darjeeling. Good. I would happily drink this if I already had it handy but would do my best to ignore the name of it.

Thanks, MissB, for the share.

Dear Steepster Friends,

I know you salivated over this tea as soon as I posted it. I get it. I did as soon as I received it, too.

The idea of candy bar tea? Yaasss. I’m in. Like Flynn.

Sadly, I didn’t get what I think I should have out of this tea. Why? The super cute tea spoon that it came with didn’t allow for enough room to portion it out (leaves = big = good). Plus, I had no idea as to how much – there’s nothing listed on the bag other than the name, the really cute logo (a tea stain!), and a note about not drinking things you’re allergic to.

Okay. But how much leaf?

I guessed, dear friends. And I failed miserably.

I put in (about) a tablespoon of tea and caramel bits, into a 12 oz cup of 200F hot water.

Yea, it was just flavored, weak tea. Nothing I can even grab to say, “yes, that’s what it tasted like”.

Just weak, thin, tea.

Boo.

I’ll try again tomorrow.
