Caramel latte is a bold blend of premium quality black tea and dark roasted coffee beans. Strong coffee aroma, malty black tea brew with a subtle sweet caramel taste. This coffee and tea blend is a perfect progression from coffee to tea. Great with milk, awakening in the morning and delicious after a meal.
Story, Folklore, History...
The black tea base of this luxurious blend comes from the beautiful central highlands of Sri Lanka, world-famous for their high quality black teas and pioneering agricultural methods. Sri Lanka was not always known for tea, however. Formerly named Ceylon, Sri Lanka was a major coffee exporter during the days of the Dutch and British colonies. By 1870, Sri Lanka was the world’s largest coffee producer. When the ‘coffee rust’ blight hit Sri Lanka in 1875, most coffee plantations were destroyed within 20 years. Shortly thereafter, tea plantations were established, and continue to flourish there today.

What is so attractive about them, then? Quite simply: flavor.
Ah. Now we’re getting somewhere. If flavor is what you want, put your faith in our tea company’s blend mistress, whose wizard-like approach to the possible iterations of leaf and spice, accent and flavor are so complex as to be nearly magical. Our Canadian tea company uses only the finest ingredients, and this time we’ve really outdone ourselves: caramel latte as you’ve never had it before, with black tea, real coffee beans, sunflower petals, and caramel extracts.
At our company we love steeping ourselves in mythology as we meld our minds with tea. Coffee, for instance,...
