444 Tasting Notes


My last pre-move sipdown. I either had this today, or yesterday, I’m not actually sure. Moving requires many cups of tea it seems. This one is comforting and spicy. It helped me relax on whichever day that was. Only wish there was David’s by the future city.


Good luck with your move!

Had this with pre-packing breakfast. There isn’t a lot to have when most of your food is packed, and nobody went to the store. So I had some oatmeal. I usually have it with cinnamon, so this paired nicely. There was a lovely scent of ginger at first, and the cardamom came out when I brewed it. The flavour was a nice blend of the two spices. And the rose petals were a pretty bit of added colour. Thanks to cookies.

Flavors: Cardamon, Ginger


I love this blend…. :)

How did I not review this already? Anyway, I really like the scent of this one. It is nice and floral. There is a lovely rose flavour as well. I like this tea because it makes feel like I’m at a fancy tea event. The black tea base is pleasant. Overall, of my fave teas from RoT.

Flavors: Floral, Flowers, Rose

Moving is stressful, so I had to have some of this tea. It smells like the green base at first, then a little brown rice cakes. The flavour reminds me of noodle soup. This would be a good tea for winter, as it has warm and homey feel.

Flavors: Toasted Rice

Yum, noodle soup! :D


You’re almost ready to go, right?

Kinda. It will be a busy weekend, we leave on Monday.


You so got this.


It’ll be over before you know it Lariel! Good luck :)

Thanks. It’ll likely take lots more of this tea.

I wanted to try this again because I had not in a while. In fact, I didn’t take very good so notes. So, Mandy was nice enough to send me some.

It smells nicely spiced. Not sure what a pumpkin creme brulee would be like, but I want to make one. This does have some creamy pumpkin flavours. Though I mostly taste the spices. Now that I tried the Ceylon, I rather like this one for the base tea.

Flavors: Creamy, Pumpkin, Spices

The snozzberries smell like snozzberries! Er, I mean raspberries. Which is pretty good, and a little bit of cocoa. There is more of the berry in the flavour, but I do get the chocolate notes as well. Towards the end of the cup, more of the base tea comes out. Which is very good, as that is the Kundaly I’ve gotten to like so much. Thanks Mandy for this.

Flavors: Berry, Chocolate, Cocoa, Raspberry

I’m not sure, but I might have some sort of tea powers. While I was searching for another caramel houjicha, somebody mentioned this company, and I found this tea. It smells nicely nutty and like caramel. The flavour reminds me of this soft serve I got from the Japanese market. This will now be one of my evening teas.

Flavors: Caramel, Nutty


Sounds yummy!

Well, I still can’t make matcha correctly. I tried it the way I make hot cocoa. Perhaps I used too much of the powder. It certainly smelled good, but the cookies and cream didn’t come out in the flavour until I added a little sugar.


I don’t get a lot of flavor out of the flavored matchas until I upped the flavor strength in my orders. I usually get at least distinctive if not robust flavor.


I always have to sweeten my matcha…that’s part of why I don’t drink more matcha

Oh, sweet malty. This is very good with my apple pie. It has the nice, malty flavour. There is also a sweetness, and it is smooth. Thanks to cookies for the sample.

Flavors: Malt, Sweet


mmm pie

Today I learn that Assam can go with Mexican food. Or I’m just weird. There was the malty scent when I brewed. The flavour seemed a bit darker than I was expecting, but still good. This might be something used in the breakfast blends.
