212 Tasting Notes
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.
Dry Leaf Nose: The fresh exciting aroma of berries and the warm roasty scent of roasted mate with a slightly pungent note of juniper.
Liquor: Dark rich brown-red liquor with an exciting aroma of berries and the warm roasty scent of roasted mate.
Flavour: Delicious and intriguing flavours of mixed fresh berries and drome fruits (cherries) with an underpinning roastiness from the mate and coffee beans. The lucuma brings a richness similar to maple and yam. It is a very complex and luscious cup with a lasting, sweet finish.
Dry Leaf Nose: A full, sweet, pistachio and cream aroma.
Liquor: A delightful dark green clear liquor with a heady pistachio-cream aroma.
Flavour: The balance of mulberry leaves and pistachios is both delicious and complex. Nutty, sweet, and simply scrumptious.
