524 Tasting Notes
Merry Teamas! (aka… Christmas in July. It would make more sense in June, but alright.) This tea came from Canada. Thanks, Uniquity. This tea smells and tastes like the Kasugi gummy candy. Which is nice, since they use fruit juice. Decided to have this iced, as I would likely have iced tea on Christmas if I lived in the Southern Hemisphere. I added a little sweetener, but that was not needed. Having it cold did bring out the melon flavour nicely.
Since I don’t live near certain stores anymore, I got this from my new local shop as a Summer tea. Firstly, it smells awesome. A nice blend of citrus and strawberry. The flavour is more lemon with hints of berry, but not as strong.
Good, but will have to try it iced.
Flavors: Berry, Citrus, Lemon, Strawberry
Ah, apricots. They go with so many things. Today, it was French toast. While reading part two of the quest to destroy the Dark Lord’s evil jewelry. This tea smells really good. I get a scent of cocoa, with hints of honey. The flavour is more honey, and generally mildly sweet.
(Have two cups with adventure stories.)
Flavors: Cocoa, Honey
When you get many apricots, make crisp. Then eat it while reading about a quest to destroy the Dark Lord’s evil jewelry. This tea smells so nice and sweet. I get mostly a scent of walnuts. The flavour is on the sweet, nut side as well.
Pairs well with both the crisp and my adventure story.
Happy Fourth of July! Today I went to a local art festival. Most fun, until the rain happened. When I got home, I decided to have some tea. But that was put off until the evening. The brew smells strongly like spices, I get mostly clove and ginger. There is a nice spice flavour, will have to try it with vanilla. Not the right season, but still good.
Instead of having a certain alien invasion movie or a historical drama, I decided to watch my favourite TV shows. The US Air Force is in it, so that counts.
Flavors: Cloves, Ginger, Natural Pumpkin Spice Flavor
Since I’m getting summer rain, figured it was time to have hot tea. It smells nicely like lavender, and a little like a beverage I had last time I was attended a Faire. I like earl grey, but the lavender is a bit on the strong side. Otherwise, I get a mild, creamy bergamot flavour. Might decided to use this for baked goods at some point.
Flavors: Bergamot, Creamy, Lavender, Vanilla
