One in a series of the tea company's "Cuppa Cake Teas", the Caramel Vanilla is a black tea blended with blackberry leaves, carob bits, and natural caramel and vanilla flavors. As the label proclaims, this tea is inspired by "old-fashioned Southern yellow cake with homemade caramel vanilla frosting". From the moment you pop open the lid, the rich, cake-batter aroma will place you back in Grandma's kitchen. One sip, and you'll experience the indulgent flavors of liquid icing.

Although I tend to favor earthier black teas to sweet teas, I found this one to be a nice break from the routine. It definitely hits high on the sugary scale, but I found the addition of milk tempered the sweetness and gave it fuller taste.

Convenient to prepare, this tea comes in a package of fifty tea bags. We steeped it at 3 minutes and found it to suit our taste buds just fine.

The packaging is as sweet and homespun as the contents with its cylindrical tin decked out in white polka dots on a beige background with a lace-look label. While the tea's taste is reminiscent of Grandma's kitchen, the tea tin will conjure up images of her pantry shelves as well.

Reviewers note: Caramel Vanilla was sent to me by The Republic of Tea to sample. The Detroit Tea Examiner does pick and choose what products appear in print and does not recommend something we would not use ourselves.
