For the holiday season only (Nov thru Dec), enjoy 10 individually wrapped sweet and smoky, tea infused, artisan caramels. Think buttery sweet smoke wrapped in one amazingly gooey and salty caramel - we’ve never tasted a caramel as good as this! Moreover, our organic and Fair Trade Certified Lapsang Souchong Black Tea is used to create the smoky infusion. These handmade caramels are meticulously prepared in small batches by our friends at Sweet Gem Confections.
Last year, we introduced our Tea Infused Caramels based on Olivia May's most popular recipe from the Arbor Teas Cooking with Tea section. They were a huge hit! In fact, they sold out in the first few weeks forcing Olivia to run back to the kitchen to make more caramels by mid-November. This year, Sweet Gem Confections is re-creating Olivia's recipe so that we can offer these tasty treats again for the holiday season.
PS - Watch out, these caramels can be addictive!
Ingredients: Organic heavy cream, organic sugar, organic butter, Lyle’s golden syrup (sugar syrup), organic lapsang souchong black tea, organic vanilla extract and sea salt

As someone who loves lapsang souchong, these are the perfect caramels for me. Though they were pretty buttery, and the smoky flavor might not be for everyone, I found them wonderful - not too much salt, not numbingly sweet, just the perfect little dessert. I just wish they were available for purchase year-round!

When I took my first bite I *almost* spit it out; the smoke flavor was incredibly intense. I wasn't thrilled after I finished that piece. But then I had to try another one, just to see if I had the same reaction. I did, but somehow ended up grabbing another one anyway. I realized I was hooked by the time I polished off my fifth caramel. I'll be asking for another bag in my stocking next year, for sure.

I bought these to share last year, but ended up hiding them in my desk... They were the right amount of caramel sweetness with just a touch of smokyness. I guess I better buy more than one bag this year!

The caramel used for these is very high quality; however, the smokey flavor is too overpowering for me.
