ingredients & lore
blended with black tea and natural caramel flavor
Caramelization is the result of removing water from sugar, using heat. The sugar is heated slowly to about 340F, and the molecules break down and re-form into compounds with a characteristic color and flavor. You could also start with a mixture of sugar and water, if you're concerned about the sugar browning too quickly. To make caramel sauce, heavy cream is added near the end and quickly whisked to integrate it into the dark syrup and prevent burning.
