Our blend-mistress has done it again, with this deliciously sweet coffee and tea blend, flavored with natural caramel essence. The coffee flavor nicely enhances the natural briskness of the black tea, and the caramel adds just right right softness to the flavor profile to tie it all together. Great with or without milk and sugar, and absolutely delicious in the morning or after a flavorful meal. Love it? Let us know with a comment and rating below!
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.

I really enjoyed this tea but I found it was missing something. Maybe needs more caramel tones? Or maybe some orange.

This tea smells sooooo divine and tastes as good as it smells. I may give up coffee for this.

Better than coffee and even tastes good iced.

Flavour is toned down just black but intensified with a splash of cream and sugar. Definitely a coffee substitute.

I have tried both coffee blends from Shanti and Caramel Latte was my favorite of the two. It is quite sweet and the addition of milk helps soften the sweetness and enhance the flavors perfectly. I enjoyed it black as well, but somehow milk makes it seem like a dessert!

Caramel Latte Tea is a perfect way to switch from coffee to tea! The taste is wonderful, you get caffeine from the coffee beans and the black tea, and it is great any time of day. I love making this as a tea latte, the flavour is rich, full and smooth. I’ve replaced my morning coffee with this blend

Tea Legends: Caramel’s Missing Myth - by Shanti Tea
If you’ve ever wandered into a popular coffee shop on a rainy afternoon, you’re sure to have heard someone ordering and some barista announcing the preparation of a caramel latte. These relatively simple drinks have become one of the mainstays of popular culture, yet the massive pilings of milk and sugar offer relatively little in the way of health benefits. 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,...
