The unofficial sponsor of the month of October.

One of the first teas I bought for my new place. Birthday/ moving tea. There is a nice sweet fruit scent. The flavour is slightly tart with some berry notes.

Good for Autumn events, and pairs well with berry scones.

Flavors: Berry, Black Currant, Tart

November sample from the local shop. Because turkey tea would be weird. There is a nice scent of familiar spices. Mostly cinnamon, with cloves and nutmeg. The spices also come out in the flavour. Not much pumpkin, but makes a good fall blend.

Pairs well with pumpkin pie.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves, Nutmeg, Spices

November review…

My tea for late Autumn. There is a nice berry scent. The flavour is a little tart, with a slight sweetness. While mild, it does have a good cranberry taste. Liked the Korakundah base. Goes well with my cranberry bagels.

Flavors: Berry, Cranberry, Tart

Happy October! My favourite month, and the first full month of Autumn (the best season). This tea smells nicely like currants. The flavour is nicely fruity, with some floral notes. There is more of a green taste, but the currant is still pretty good.

Flavors: Black Currant, Floral, Fruity

Happy Autumn! My latest sample from the local shop. It has a nice mild vanilla scent. With a little sweetness. There is a mildly creamy vanilla flavour. Reminds me a little of pastries.

Flavors: Creamy, Vanilla

This is pretty fruity. While called pomegranate, that flavour is hidden. There is some berry and mostly cinnamon. And too much hibiscus.

Store sample. The spice scent was nice. And there is some pumpkin. There is too much going in the flavour though. It’s spice with chocolate and some caramels notes. It’s like having a pumpkin truffle. Overall, it’s alright.

A local company. I’d originally tried this at a festival in the spring. When brewed, I got a scent of rose and cardamon. The chocolate comes out more in the flavour, but I mostly get floral spice. There is some vanilla as well. Was good with muffins.

Flavors: Cacao, Cardamon, Floral, Rose

On a rainy day such as this, I like to have black tea. The scent is very nice, certainly honey and a bit sweet. There is a sweet flavour, nice but a little strong. Also somewhat floral.

Not sure what I was expecting, but overall pretty good.

Flavors: Floral, Honey, Sweet

Captain’s Personal Log-

I’ve sent the crew to a planet with nice beaches for shore leave. Most of them have been playing this farming game (Stardew Valley) on the Holodeck. So I decided we needed to get off the ship for a while. The engineering team built an impressive sandcastle, with a working drawbridge. Based on an old French castle.

One of the locals offered me this tea. There is a stronger bergamot scent than I usually have in this blend. In fact, the flavour is like that too. Comes across as slightly on the smoky side. Especially towards the end of the cup.

As we ended up with a large amount, I hope the mess hall can use it to make something.
