892 Tasting Notes
This is so good and now it’s gone. A rich, bold Assam with a dominant brown sugar note, lots of malt and a hint of fruitiness.
Minimally astringent – this would be great with milk and sugar, but it doesn’t need it.
Flavors: Brown Sugar, Fruity, Malt
I sipped this down recently and I’m so sad it’s gone now. The dominant flavours are cinnamon and squash, with some malt and cocoa richness.
I feel like this would be the perfect base for making a really good pumpkin spice tea, except that it’s almost too good on its own to adulterate with flavours.
If this is still available with the same flavour profile I may need to cave and place a Greenterrace order sometime in the not too distant future.
Flavors: Butternut Squash, Cinnamon, Cocoa, Malt
Sipped this down today and it was delightful. Both fruit flavours really shine out, and while there’s some tartness, it’s not hibiscus tartness (yay!)
I’m on more of a straight teas kick lately but this is worth restocking for me, eventually.
Flavors: Cranberry, Pear, Tart
I hadn’t had this in years but I got a free tin as part of a sale, and I’m glad I did. I made this as a latte with sweetened condensed milk and it was just heavenly – very sweet, borderline syrupy and deliciously cakey. Definitely lives up to its name. <3
Flavors: Cake, Sugar, Sweet, Vanilla
I picked up a box of this on one of my trips – with frequent travelling I’ve found one of the best things for me to do is just buy some tea and a mug when I get there, to make hotel stays a bit more homey.
As with my previous experience with these Lipton sachets, I was pleasantly surprised. This is a nice, solid Earl Grey with a good amount of bergamot and some other citrusy notes.
Over time I’ve reduced my steep time for almost all black teas to 3 minutes, and I find that that amount of time does well by this. This is a go to morning tea, at least till the box is gone, as it’s tasty and convenient.
Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus
I grabbed this tonight for my sweetie’s place, as we’re running low on non-caf teas. I was a little worried that it would be all tart hibiscus and generic berry flavour but it’s actually really good. The tart isn’t overpowering , and the berry flavour is complex – I pick up primarily blueberry.
A nice, soothing tea for a rough day.
Flavors: Blueberry, Hibiscus, Sweet, Tart
