A gift from my work-husband this past May! Well, he’s no longer my work-husband since he moved to northern Ky for another job. But he was a good one. At 5am, he walked into the cafeteria where I was making brownies for 600 people, took one look at my face, and immediately walked back out. He came back in 20 minutes with three different boxes of Lipton tea. I’ll never be able to train someone that well again.
When I first tried it, I didn’t like it at all (which is why this is the only one I have left out of the three). I was expecting sweeter, creamier, a dessert tea. The caramel taste is very dark, almost as though the caramel was cooked for too long. This makes the tea very earthy, and to me, it tastes more like the mushroom truffle than a dessert truffle. It’s still good, so long as you like savory and are expecting it. Avoid using boiling water and overbrewing: this one gets bitter fast.
