255 Tasting Notes
Dry Leaf Nose: Fresh blueberries and pineapple.
Liquor: A well balanced mix of fresh blueberries and pineapple. Steeps a lavender-coloured cup, clear and bright.
Flavour: Fresh blueberries and pineapple, with lemongrass acting as a carrier.
Dry Leaf Nose: Follows the liquor with the tartness of hibiscus, yet holding a sweet and fruity note.
Liquor: Clear, deep red liquor with the tartness of hibiscus yet holding a sweet and fruity note.
Flavour: The tartness of the hibiscus permeates the whole, yet still allows the very fruity-pungent and sweet notes of the other ingredients a fair share of palate space. The spices are very well balanced and add to the overall experience without revealing themselves as individual notes. The blend has a definite sweetness in the finish.
Dry Leaf Nose: A definite spiciness, complimented and enhanced by the sweet orange notes.
Liquor: Golden liquor with a nice, zesty spiciness.
Flavour: Our take on the classic Orange Spice tea. A perfect balance of cinnamon and cloves, without allowing either to take preference over the other. The green tea is apparent in the lively mouthfeel and the chili pepper brings a little heat to the blend.
Dry Leaf Nose: The mint is prevalent with the chocolate coming through in the background.
Liquor: Dark red brown liquor with a minty tea aroma followed by a cocoa chocolate note
Flavour: The rich chocolate and tea notes are heightened by the peppermint. This classic flavour combination reaches a new level as the tea adds a richness, liveliness and caffeine kick to the blend.
Dry Leaf Nose: Sweet, warm spices with a hint of lemongrass and coconut. The cinnamon comes forward in the spices and some cardamom notes. The teas are evident but play a minor role in the nose.
Liquor: A lovely and clear yellow gold liquor with the aroma of warm spices and coconut. Sweet and round with notes of lemongrass.
Flavour: A sweet and complex overall flavour, filled with warm spices and a hint of lemongrass. Delicate and smooth in the cup.
Dry Leaf Nose: Sweet mint with creamy white chocolate notes.
Liquor: Rich brown and somewhat opaque liquor. If short steeped, the colour can be a greenish brown – also lovely.
Flavour: A rich mint flavour tempered and sweetened by the creaminess of white chocolate. Exceptionally rich for an herbal blend and very full flavoured.
Dry Leaf Nose: An intoxicating aroma of figs and spiced fruits.
Liquor: Brownish-red liquor with fig and spiced fruit notes.
Flavour: A rich and enticing aroma/flavour. Spiced fruits mingle with a sweet fleeting flavour of sliced figs, dried and fresh. The combination is very much like a delicious holiday cake.
Dry Leaf Nose: Gingerbread and dark molasses.
Liquor: A rich, reddish-brown colour with notes of gingerbread and molasses.
Flavour: Very true to good old fashioned gingerbread. The flavor holds well on the palate, lingering but not cloying. There is a slight buildup of the flavour as the cup is consumed with the ginger becoming more prominent.
Dry Leaf Nose: Cocoa and hazelnut with a hint of the oolong tea.
Liquor: Rich brown with aromas of cocoa and hazelnut.
Flavour: All of the richness and complexity of of a chocolate/hazelnut spread. The chocolate is prominent while the hazelnut brings a deep nuttiness to the blend.
