Cara Mela


Cara Mela

from 20.00

Cara Mela means ‘dear apple’ in Italian, and is the perfect name for this opulent, full-bodied tea blend. Inspired by crisp, juicy, slightly tart apples dipped in salted French caramel, Cara Mela is mellow and comforting with sensual apple and butterscotch aromas that bring to mind a hot, sticky apple pie, fresh from the oven. It’s the perfect tea to warm up after a long walk in the woods with—who else?—the apple of your eye.
