This is the perfect pick me up and completely guilt-free treat. Pu-erh leaves are aged and go through a natural fermentation process before the tea is gently dried. This creates a cup with zero astringency and deep, rich body. We add the almonds and organic oils to this base to create caramel bliss. In Asia, Pu-erh teas are also known for their slimming and medicinal properties.
Serving Suggestion: Adam likes this tea with milk and one spoonful of brown sugar. Adrien drinks it black. For iced drinks either cold brew overnight or brew as for hot but use more tea leaves to make a more intense flavour.
The current obsession for salted caramel flavouring has driven an expectation for, and to a degree set a high bar for what, a caramel indulgence has to deliver. This product doesn’t quite live up to its own title. To a certain extent that’s probably to be expected in a pure clean natural product that seeks to achieve a different taste experience than the run of the mill manufactured tastes of the majority of the industry. What this delivers is a sense of caramel not a hedonistic indulgence. It’s a perfectly decent and quaffable drink but it isn’t an indulgence.
