Review: Vanilla Caramel Truffle Tea

Flavor: Not usually a great fan of flavored teas because sometimes the flavor overwhelms the tea taste and you end up drinking flavored water with tea. This one is not bad. It's hard to mix all 3 flavors together and taste all 3. On smelling it, it smells strongly of caramel. On tasting it, the vanilla and caramel flavor is rather weak, the truffle flavor is stronger and you end up with a coffee-ish tasting tea, which isn't bad. After reading the other reviews, butterscotch, musty or even musky come to mind.

Packaging: I love the pyramid tea bags. I think they really work well, at a minimum they allow bigger tea leaves because there is more space inside the bag for the water to swirl the leaves around. The negative about this is that the bags are not individually wrapped (difficult to wrap a pyramid shape) so I try to use up all 20 bags as quickly as possible lest the flavor escapes.

I love this product. I have loved it for almost 2 years. It really calms the nerves without having to be coffee and its fragrance is just amazing. A friend of mine loves this just as much as I do. She has recently become pregnant and was seriously bummed when she couldn't drink as much as she used to of this beverage. I highly recommend this tea. Though I must admit it is a dessert tea.
