Salted Caramel – featured tea

A long-time staple in the French region of Brittany (who but the French could have devised a confection so…shall we say, delicieux?), salted caramels didn’t really invade North American palates until sometime in the late 1990s. This Metz Tea adaptation of this confection is a sumptuous blend of seasonal black teas, popped rice, dried fruit, flowers and natural flavouring oils. The combination is all but guaranteed to have you saying “encore!” with each and every sip. Utterly sublime.

Perfect for a night in binging Netflix or curled up in front of a fire.

How to Prepare Salted Caramel

To brew Salted Caramel, follow the following guideline:

  • Mild: 2-3 minutes
  • Medium: 4-5 minutes
  • Strong: 6-7 minutes

It is recommended to brew to medium strength. As you might expect, the longer the tea brews, the fuller the flavour.

Salted Caramel is best enjoyed straight up or with a splash of milk and a dash of sugar or a spoon of honey.
