Taste the decadent flavors of old-fashioned Southern yellow cake with homemade caramel vanilla frosting. Our smooth premium black tea blend is a favorite and was inspired by the caramel cake in the movie "The Help." This calorie-free treat is wonderful either served hot or cool.
Black Tea has less than half the amount of caffeine per cup than in a similar-sized cup of coffee. More about caffeine.
Steeping black tea is easy. Simply heat fresh, filtered water to a rolling boil. Then pour water over tea and steep for 3-5 minutes if using a tea bag or full-leaf.

Sounded so good, I had to give it a try. Smells wonderful and tastes pleasant. It does have notes of vanilla cupcake. Sometimes I wish all teas had stronger flavor, but I choose not to add cream or sugar which I realize probably enhances the flavor even more. Nevertheless- enjoy this tea.

This is another tea that I love first thing in the morning. I actually love it so much I'll sip it throughout my day as a treat. Wonderfully smooth with a deliciously sweet scent; it's like drinking my cake. Must always have this tea around.

I am a big fan of black teas. This is one of the best ones I have has so far. It's great for a mid-day pick-me-up, and perfect form my sweet tooth. I highly recommend this tea. Instead of going for a candy bar for a mid-afternoon kick, get this tea instead!

I love the rich vanilla flavor of this tea. It's soothing and delicious. There's just the right amount of flavor and the dessert flavors are blended in perfectly.

Love this tea, but I had a thought. I really love chocolate cake so, I decided to try it combined with the Double Dark Mate and voila! Delicious chocolate carmel cake! I absolutely love the combo!

I rarely drink any teas but I always try to find one I like. After one sip of a sample caramel vanilla tea, I was hooked. The smell is sugary and just like a cupcake. The taste (how I drink it), is sweet. Worth the money!

If I'm having a sweet craving in the middle of the night at work I'll turn to having one of the cuppa teas. It's a tie between this one and the blueberry as my favorite. I prefer to have it hot with a vanilla creamer!

This tea is heavenly. I've been drinking the Vanilla Almond black tea for years, and love it but bought a small package of this to try it. It is perfect for that afternoon cup - when you really want something sweet. I add milk and honey to make it even more perfect. It's also amazing iced - with just a dash of honey! LOVE THIS TEA!!!

This tea is excellent. It smells warm and inviting. One of my favorites.
Just like a wonderful slice of cake

I regularly buy the Acai green tea and I thought I had found the most perfect tea with that variety, but this new Caramel Vanilla Cuppa Cake tea is giving the Acai a run for the money in my house. I received a free sample with a recent order and tried it out, and was instantly hooked. The scent is heavenly and the taste is superb. It's a wonderful slice of cake without the calories. What could be more perfect!

This is one of the best teas I've ever tasted. It keeps my sweet tooth satisfied without calories or carbs. As a diabetic, I'm always on the lookout for treats that do not affect my blood sugar. A touch of milk and Splenda and I'm able to curb excess eating. And for a real taste treat, I add a splash of good quality brandy. Life is good!

An indulgent treat with no calories, it makes you feel cozy and comforted! I like to drink this tea while reading. It really gives me a warm and delicious feeling. The light caramel and vanilla flavors are tantalizing and the aroma is delightful!

I got this tea as a sample in a catalog. I really did not think I was going to like it, but I gave it a try. Now I'm thinking about ordering a whole can. It's lovely!
Best Tea Ever!

I totally adore this tea. I have been looking for a tea that I truly enjoy and this is the one. I highly recommend it for people who are on the fence with hot tea.

I received this as a sample with the catalog. It smells very sweet, but the first sip was not what I expected. After adding some milk and a bit of caramel syrup, it really does taste like cake!

This is so tasty!! It has a buttery caramel flavor profile with a wonderful vanilla aroma. I am going to give a can to my friend for her birthday, since she likes vanilla and drinks tea also. I highly recommend it.

Received this delightful tea as a sample with the latest catalog and loved it. I would love to order this tea in decaf! Please make a decaf version so that I can enjoy this as a desert tea after a satisfying meal.
wow! what a treat

What a wonderful tea. Rich, full bodied, great mouth feel. Perfect after dinner tea. Takes the place of a rich dessert. Add a bit of sweetener and a splash of milk.....delightful.
OMG!! What Pleasure!!

This is such a heavenly tea. It smells and tastes lovely. It's like liquid dessert. Anyone who is a fan of vanilla/caramel, I highly recommend this tea. You'll be glad you did!!!

Wow, this tea is sooo good. I was expecting a light taste and light tea, but this is a strong cuppa tea with full flavor. I don't really taste the yellow cake, but the vanilla and Carmel makes it a very tasty cup. I have already ordered another batch for Christmas gifts. Love love this tea

First i was not sure about this tea and purchased it as a 12 samples tea. After i tried it, I could not forget the taste of this! The taste of vanilla and a hint of caramel is an soothing and light for you to drink. I added some milk or creamer in it and it tastes even more divine! I highly recommend it.
I received this as a gift set and it is so yummy. The smell is addicting.

This is a delicious, sweet treat. I put a splash of milk and sugar in it.

This may be my all-time favorite hot tea! The caramel and vanilla are a perfect blend. I love it with a splash of milk (or, better yet, cream). It has such a rich taste, but is not too heavy or spicy like some dessert teas. I suspect it would probably be good chilled too.
Good, More of an Aftertaste
September 23, 2013
I was intrigued when I saw that there was a black tea variety for the Cuppa Cake teas. The tea, while leaving an aftertaste of vanilla and caramel, and smelling quite delicious, didn't exactly taste as vanilla/caramel as I had hoped. However, it is still a delightful tea, and I have a feeling I will be ordering some if they are still around when the time comes.
Excellent dessert tea

Everyone in our house loves this tea. The flavors of both caramel and vanila really come through, and blend beautifully with the black tea. Only 1 tiny complaint -- this is the kind of tea you want to drink for dessert after dinner, so I wish it were decaf, suitable for drinking in the evening.
