225 Tasting Notes
Balanced aroma with base malty black tea, raspberry and passionfruit.
Very watery, bland taste, barely giving the impression of drinking black tea and with only slight traces of fruit.
Well, it’s Lipton, I didn’t expect much, but certainly more than this.
Flavors: Malt, Passion Fruits, Raspberry
Very delicate herbal aroma.
And so delicate, faint, watery taste.There are some flowery and herbal sensations, but way too weak. It’s like drinking water, not a herbal steep. Huge disappointment, because I was really looking forward to taste this particular blend.
The bundle consists almost entirely of flower inflorescences.
Smells really nicely, flowery, with oregano and wild thyme dominating.
Unfortunately the taste is very faint, watery (I brew all the herbal teas from the set in the same cup and using the same amount of water. There are some nice herbal and flowery nuances, but certainly not enough.
Flavors: Floral, Flowers, Thyme
Interesting composition. Very leafy, with strong bison grass notes, a bit flowery, a bit summer-y. Too bad I don’t sense the pine shoots much in the aroma.
But they are very evident in taste. Fortunately I beer geek and I love heavily hopped beers with a lot of bitterness, because this tea is really bitter (in a lingering way, that get’s a bit unpleasant). And has a lot of bison grass flavours.
Good idea and good choice of ingredients, but I would limit the pine shoots amount a little.

Brews into a beautiful brown colour, like black tea.
The aroma is heavily dominated by mint, with only traces of sage and oregano (I have no idea how sideritis should smell like).
The taste is more balanced, very herbal, a bit leafy, very soothing and refreshing.
Flavors: Herbs, Mint, Sage
Blend of two herbs I never tasted before.
Strange herbal aroma, a bit like mint, a bit like sage, a bit soapy.
Distinct taste, soapy, chamomile-like, slightly sweet.
As a one-time brew it’s nice and unique, but I probably wouldn’t like to drink it more often.
Flavors: Herbs, Soap
