220 Tasting Notes
This Assam is so strong it will cut your face. If you are hardcore, I’d recommed drinking this straight. Or for those who don’t want to put their life in danger, adding a generous splash of milk or cream makes this delicious. The savoury aftertaste is especially yummy if you pair it with some fresh-out-of-the-oven gingerbread…
This tea is just a smidgen less delicious than my favourite earl grey (Earl Grey Excelsior from t Leaf T, which is notoriously out of stock). The black tea base is light, and the bergamot refreshingly strong. I’m definitely going to pick up a big pretty tin of this for Earl Grey related emergencies.
Chinese black tea frightens me because it either tastes like mouldy dirt, cigarette ashes, death, or all of the above. But I actually enjoyed this one! I found it mildly malty, with just the tiniest edge of ashiness. I could quite happliy drink an entire pot, go the Yunnan!
One of the most delicious flavoured black teas I have ever come across! With natural almond flavouring and almond slivers, this tea is an absolute delight – I prefer mine with a tiny splash of milk, but it stands up well on its own. Fingers crossed they get this flavour back in stock soon, I’m not sure how long my current bag will last…
The green rooibos base takes away some of that syrupy sweetness that most fruity teas have (and I dislike). The peach flavour is nice and mild, but I definitely think it has more bang when its iced – brewed double strength, topped up with soda water and peach schnapps… mmmm…
