I was just talking about (in my Chocolate Orange review) how I wanted to try the Scottish Caramel Pu-erh that seems to exist all over Steepster in many incarnations.
Not sure now similar this one is to others but I didn’t even know I owned it!
My husband had signed me up for a TOTM club for my birthday in 2013, unfortunately most of the teas came when I was pregnant and totally opposed to the idea of drinking it (not morally, it just turned my stomach)…. So they all remained sealed in my kitchen cupboard because I was hoping to preserve their freshness and recently decided I wanted to drink some others down before opening new ones.
I was doing a little tea inventory earlier and found this, awesome surprise!
I really enjoyed it. It was more of the deep, “burnt caramel” toffee taste vs the creamy buttery type, but it worked well with the pu’erh. I loved how rich it brewed up!
I was able to add so much milk and it stayed thick and hearty and delicious!
I’m looking forward to trying some straight pu-erh and might do a pricy Lupicia order one day to try their offerings.
I guess the other one I will have to try someday is that Cinnamon Swirl Bread by Steap Shoppe that I’ve seen people raving about!
