Review of Twinings Salted Caramel Green Tea

As a lady who enjoys her cups of tea on a daily basis I am always on the lookout for new teas to try. Yet for some unknown reason I tend to drink very little green tea. This is strange as it is a great tea to be enjoyed milk free so it is therefore perfect for dairy free me. I have tried a couple of brands of green tea of varying qualities. So when a friend kindly gave me a couple of packets of Twinings salted caramel green tea to try I couldn’t wait to open a packet.

I liked the design of the packaging with this tea. It is light green with a picture of what I would describe as a slightly exploding cupcake. This is surrounded by pieces of salted caramel. Onto the ingredients well there are sadly none in the back of the packet. So I had to check on the Twinings website. Green tea and natural flavouring (7%) are listed. I personally wish that the details of the flavouring was more detailed. There are there no allergens highlighted or any may contain warnings listed.

On opening the packet I was greeted by a sweet caramel aroma that was slightly artificial yet tempting. There was no grassy aroma that I associate with green tea. I was hoping for a slightly grassy meadow aroma intermingled with a hint of sweet caramel. This didn’t change on my famous close up sniff test. I placed the teabag in my teacup and added my slightly cooled freshly boiled hot water. I left the tea to infuse with the hot water as instructed. The hot water soon changed to a light green colour. The aroma of the sweet caramel intensified and I struggled to smell the grassy aroma that I associate with green tea. This remained the same, even on my close up sniff test. I couldn’t wait to try this tea. On sipping the tea I could definitely taste the sweet caramel which was the predominant flavour with delicate grassy undertones noted. That said it still tasted like a nice light green tea with the bonus of added sweet salted caramel. This made a pleasant change to other green teas that I have tried. It was nice to experience a lighter green tea with a very sweet kick. It was a nice light refreshing tea. I have to admit to being pleasantly surprised by this tea. It is a great way to resolve those sweet cravings without all of the calories.

So would I recommend this green tea, yes definitely. I liked the sweet aroma and flavour of this tea. It was a light refreshing green tea with a very sweet twist. So if you fancy a milk free tea, why not give this green tea a try. So thank Twinings for producing a refreshing yet sweet green tea.

  1. I really like most Twinnings tea, it is made in my hometown and I’ve had friends whose parents have worked there, we would try so many different flavours after school! I really like this salted caramel green tea #triumphanttales

  2. Salted caramel is the most delicious thing on the planet, so I think I’d love this too! So glad it didn’t disappoint you. I’d never have thought of pairing caramel with green tea but it sounds like it worked perfectly together!!


  3. Ohhh this sounds great and I love that you don’t need to add milk! Perfect for those of us that are dairy free! This sounds great for when you want something sweet, I’ll have to give this a go!

  4. I’ve seen your post at the right time because I’ve been gifted a green tea but wasn’t sure I would like it because I’m more of a builders tea lover! Reading this has put my mind at ease and I’m going to try mine out tonight.

    Thanks for sharing your opinions 🙂

  5. THis sounds good, especially for the colder months. I used to love fruit teas but have been drinking coffee for ages. I think it’s time for a change up! X

  6. Salted Caramel Green Tea! OMG! I have to go look for this now. I love the combination. Just like when I would go to Starbucks, my typical drink would be a Iced Green Tea Latte with caramel drizzle. This tea is something I will have to go get now. Thank you for sharing.

  7. I have never tried green tea but this sounds really intriguing. I can imagine caramel and coffee but not tea… I’ll have to try it! Thanks for linking up with #fortheloveofBLOG
